I don't know what it is about that 4th baby... but, yeah, I've kind of been in a tailspin since I had her. I was talking to my mom, asking her about how my grandmother managed the household when she...

Thanks for the suggestions. She actually will run along with my daughter when she rides her bike or scooter, but I don't feel safe letting her go very far without me. Unfortunately, because the baby...

Okay, I'm surprised more moms haven't chimed in as this really seems to be a common issue with toddlers and new babies. I think a lot of it is personality - dd1 had jealousy issues, but she wouldn't...
