how is everyone doing?
this last week has been a trial. i think lucien has an ear/sinus infection and has been, what i can only politely say, a handful. marcus is such a calm, easy baby, on the other hand i feel im neglecting him. i rush through diaper changes instead of talking to him because lucien's having a meltdown. when im not wearing him because i need to have my hands free for lucien, he's in his swing or bouncy seat cause all i want to do is sit on my butt and veg out.
i really thought we would try for 3 but lately im seriously reconsidering if i want to do this again. i feel myself regressing down to lucien's level. im cranky, tantrum-y. im ready to be an adult again.
Wow do I ever feel your pain, and I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one! I have a 23 month old and a 6 week old and some days I feel like I'm having a total meltdown. DD is dancing on the table tops while DS gets his bum changed, or DS is crying in his swing because DD needs me to help her put on her boots, or take her to the potty. I feel like neither kid is getting enough attention and I'm feeling like I'm not being the mom I want to be. The week DH went back to work I thought I would die of exhaustion, but it is getting better, DS is not so fussy now (crying if not in my arms or CuddlyWrap), so it's a little easier, and now that the weather is better, we can get out more. Crying is not so loud when you're at the playground with lots of other kids.
Thanks for sharing, it's comforting to know I'm not alone!
I can sooooo empathise!!!
I have a 2 1/2 yr old ds and a 5 week old dd. Dd is fine, although I'm facing the usual exhausting newborn affliction, lack of sleep, crying fits etc.
But ds is driving me INSANE!!! The crazy non-stop tantrums for the tiniest reasons are getting to me. I'm really at the end of my rope with him
He won't let dd sleep, he's very rough with her (but he's very sweet and loves her, just doesn't know when to stop) and I feel like I'm continually telling him to stop whatever he's doing : I hope it'll get easier soon!!!
I'm just happy I'm not alone!!!
