One consolation for me is that my youngest has been 'neglected' but seems a much, much more rounded character than her other siblings; we'll see how that goes after birth, but I guess she never felt like the world revolved around her like the older ones did, and so her expectations of life are different; more mellow and generally more sociable. The eldest who had a little bit of one to one time has like a HUGE chip on his shoulder that he is sooo hard done by!!!
Your little ones will hopefully never get that because they get something from their siblings that the older ones never had etc etc
"My lack of time for them is showing in their behavior too, which is why I spend what seems like every moment putting out fires. What am I doing wrong?"
Hmm, what I wrote above doesn't necessarily take that into account. lol. but it's something to think about in terms of longterm balancing out .... we didn't pick their birth order, you know, there is wisdom in it somewhere
