Rachel-- I'm so sorry you're struggling with your older son! It made me so sad thinking about you just waiting for bedtime. I can totally relate. My DS is 4 and he's always been very laid back but he's screaming and pushing DD and snatching things from her and nothing I can say makes him stop or understand why he can't do that. I feel certain it's a stage and it will get better. and I do yell and feel so guilty but like I said I just can't get his attention and don't even know what to do sometimes. its hard. Good luck with your photos. The reasons you said you wanted to do them seemed like it would be great for you and your DH. Thanks also for the link to the book. What age do the wonder weeks continue through? I was just wondering if it's too late to read now if it's just for the first year or something?
Happy mama of two (soon to be three!)
