I thought I had a hard time going from one to two, but now I'm having an impossible time going from two to three. My kids have so many behavior issues that I can't seem to get a handle on and I'm very discouraged.
Andrea. I just want to echo what the others have already said. Hopefully that adjustment period will be short and quick, everyone will settle into their new normal routines and things will settle back down. I've always heard it's harder going from 1 to 2 than it is from 2 to 3, but I've never really believed it. I mean, how could it be any easier? An extra person to tend to and split attention with, etc. I'm preparing myself for the difficulties I'm expecting DS to give me once this new baby arrives. He's always been one to test the limits and push me to the brink. Thankfully he's a bit older so maybe it won't be as bad as I'm making it out to be in my head. Anywho, hang in there.
