Hi there. I'm almost 7 months pregnant and have a 2 1/2 year old ds and also look after an almost 3 year girl. I am finding that I just don't have the patience that I usually do. I'm really over-reacting to my son's 2 year old testing behaviour. The poor dog is the one who is really getting it though. I can feel this fury rising up in me when he doesn't come when I call him or whatever. I don't mean that I'm doing anything terrible, I'm just a little snappy and irrational but I hate having these feelings. The kids are just acting appropriately for their age. It's just me that's having a hard time dealing with it. Today we went for a walk in the park and it took forever to get out of the door and they kept trying to put the dog's leash on before we were ready so of course the dog was going crazy and when we finally got out they argued over how the recycling should be arranged on the sidewalk and then DS wanted a carry (which I couldn't give him) and then he cried because he wanted to carry the bag but not certain things that were in the bag which he wanted me to carry, etc, etc. I honestly felt like just going straight home again. And I've still got 2 months to go! I can't imagine life will l get easier with a newborn either. Can anyone relate?
