I always knew I wanted to have two kids. I never thought they would be five years apart in age but things don’t always workout as we planned. Even though we didn’t plan it this way, I figured it would ultimately be easier since The Love Nugget would be older and more independent.
Easy, doesn’t really describe the transition we’ve had from one to two kids….
It hasn’t been horrible, but it hasn’t been as easy as I had hoped it would be. From the moment The Love Nugget laid eyes on his little brother, he’s been stand offish. To put it nicely. He hasn’t held him has barely touched him and hasn’t really wanted to be near him. Or me for that matter. When he came to the hospital, he wouldn’t sit on the bed with me let alone with me holding the baby. We had to bribe him just to sit near me to take a picture.
