I feel so guilty over this....
ds1, who is going to be 8 year old next month, has been driving me batty since ds2 joined us.
It's like I resent the time he takes away from ds2--time that he had with me all to himself, since he was an only-child at the time.
Things that I used to like to do with him--snuggling included--irritate me, despite my desperate attempts to make everything be 'back to normal'

ugh baby just woke up...

I am right there with you! My first dd is almost two, and she drives me completely batty some days! Today has been especially bad- she didn't sleep well last night, and then her nap was really short, and she has been cranky and whiney all day! I finally ended up turning on a video so that I could lay down with the baby and close my eyes for a few minutes.

I don't really have any auggestions, but I do know how you're feeling! I have found that spending time alone with her helps, even if it is just in small burst of time.
