I mean, she spends most of the day happily playing by herself, but I feel so rotten, like I should be participating.
At the same time I'm nesting like crazy. There's a million and one things that I need to get done before the baby comes. I just want to fold and refold all the baby's clothes and finish knitting this darned baby blanket and read my birth books! From the moment I found out I was pregnant I questioned how I would love two babes at once, would I love this 2nd one as much as I love my DD? Now I fear I am putting my DD aside for the baby that isn't even here yet, and I know that's sort of normal, but blargh. Tell me I'm not alone and not a horrible person.
Mama to 3 daughters, expecting #4
|i'm also finding myself much less patient lately with my son (just turned three). i catch myself rushing him when really we're not in any rush. i also am much less keen on playing with him.|
