I have been counting my lucky stars, thinking of all the younger ones you guys have and how hard it can be and only today, 4 1/2 weeks after Greta came has it hit me/Oscar that he is a big brother. Until today he was still an only child as his father has been his care-giver and not left him alone. He went to Wales to help with the silage yesterday and Oscar has, in my humble, tired, irritated opinion been awful. I know I need to try to be understanding, put him first sometimes in the day, keep the boundaries but when you hit your baby sister with a penny in a sling shot, do things again and again after just having been told to stop and give those definant "NO" responses, you are just asking for trouble. I keep threatening him with not going on our family holiday to Ireland and I hate doing that! I don't like to threaten at all and only do it when I've lost it. Well I have. I hope tomorrow is easier, I'll try not to mention Ireland, I'll try not to hide in the computer room from him, but at this point in time, just right now, this evening, having not gotten used to it, I can't wait for school to start again!!!!!
