Hey xx how are you?
I saw your post about doing bits in the week, I could have written it myself. Connagh has been so so naughty the past few weeks it's really draining. He has gone from the perfect child to the devil in a matter of weeks. He was fine the first few weeks after O was born but as O has become more demanding and out of the newborn days C has needed something everytime O does. He has gotten so defiant. If we don't do stuff with him he is worse!!!

hello. what you have written above is exactly it, i thought it was just the terrible 2s, but maybe its the impact of a new baby, as connagh is a year older than I.
Today is our first day home without h, im hoping we can get into more of a routine now but i think some days are going to be a struggle.
How are you feeling now?

I feel terribly guilty...I am sure that C's behaviour is a mix of new baby and me simply being in hospital all the time lately, either for myself or for O. He is being really vile at the moment, I hardly recognise him compared to the quiet well behaved boy I had lol.
I can't really give much advice on getting in to a routine as because of all the hospital visits and operation we aren't even close to being in a routine. For now I am just trying to do what I can when I can when I am on my own. Luckily H took a week off work when I had my op to have the boys....but as his shifts fell it actually worked out that he had 15 days off. He went back Friday for four days and is off for another 7 days as of tomorrow.
Im feeling like I want to do more, but a mix of just not being up to it physically and also PIL getting in the way is holding me back. I can't tell you what a difference I think it will make when we get in to our own home. The other night I struggled to get O and C asleep....both were screaming for hours. When I eventually got them down...PIL started making a racket and woke them both up. Its impossible!!!
Let me know your secret if you crack it before me lol

bribery i think. Iv promised I if she is good i would take her to the park this afternoon. shes sleeping now although dont know how long for. the house looks like a tip though, as shes pulled all the toys out over the floor and cos iv been feeding L i havnt been able to do much about it. but no tantrums . Iv made plans for tommorrow and wednesday and il deal with thursday when it gets here. My h has been off for 5 weeks in total, he had 2 weeks paternity and 8 days hol but he works shifts of 4 on 4 off so was off for ages.
when is it you move?

Sound similar shifts to my H.
We were supposed to move end of this month but there have been further delays so they are advising September now. I hope it's before the 11th as that's when C starts his new nursery and I don't fancy a four hour round trip three days a week!!
