We've only just started to have a bit of naughtiness from our eldest littlest man yesterday which we're trying to brainstorm ways of addressing. We're figuring he's only just realized the baby is staying and he's also noticing that I'm much less available. Also whilst DH is home and he loves playing with dad all day, dad is still having a couple of nurses a day where the attention is on the baby. Any ideas from mummies who have done it before would be greatly appreciated - the days r still pretty chaotic and they're not starting fully as early as we're all used to so I think he gets a little bored and is feeling a little left out. He had a big protest @ bedtime last night and was just mischeiveous all day. We're trying to be really calm with him and lot get cranky but he's starting to really push it and get too rough with his little brother so we have some strategies ready to try which will hopefully help. He's not the type who will be passified by helping with the baby all day either so we're only doing tiny bits of that. I know he'll come good but I just don't want to upset him and make it worse in the meantime - he does have a really beautiful personality ...... It's just a big change.
Well had really expected some more announcements by now ..... Hopefully soon. Kelbel I honestly thought u'd go 1st!
