Re: My son says he doesn't like his brother
Mama - I never went through the rival thing with my boys - they are best friends and have been since birth BUT I can comment a little on the super clingy baby.
My middle son was super suck baby - he SCREAMED night and day for months and would only be with me. He was nine months old the first time he let my DH hold him without freaking out! He didn't really stop being my cuddle bug until he was in kindergarten - now we are heading into grade two and I MISS MY SNUGGLE BUG! I know in the thick of things I used to wish so badly for five minutes to go pee alone - lol BUT they grow up so fast and it will get better!!!
Now we are having another "set" of children and I am scared but excited that I might get a new snuggle bug. (I say set because of our spacing the bigs boys are 13 months apart then there is a 6 year gap and then the littles will be roughly 18 months apart.)
