Current view. Caspian's creepy nightlight and a sliver of daylight escaping from behind his blackout curtains.
As amazing as he's been with the baby (hasn't tried to smother her...yet...give it time), he has seriously regressed in certain areas - one of which being that he has to have someone sit with him until he falls asleep. At first I didn't mind indulging him, owing to the massive change and how he clearly just wanted some extra attention. However, nearly four weeks in and we're still at it, which seriously worries me that he thinks this may be a long-term deal. Which it categorically, 100% is NOT.
The problem is, every time I leave him he cries his eyes out, the guilt kicks in and I rush back into his room. The other problem is that whilst this is happening, the hubby is downstairs battling with the new one during her colic time, leading to my boobs squirting like the fricking Bellagio dancing fountains as I sit upstairs and listen to her cries (I wouldn't mind, but I'm not even breast feeding. Go figure). And then I feel guilty for leaving her.
So, I've reached the general consensus that not only is having two kids double the trouble and half the sleep, it's also fifty times the guilt and twice the spend at Tesco on the weekly wine shop...or is that just me...? #instamum #instababy #instatoddler #sleepproblems #toddlerproblems #regression #twoisnoteasierthanone #bringmethewine #instablog #instablogger #mumslife #mumsnet #mumsofinstagram #newbornbaby #siblinglove #siblinghate
