Just wait until you have 2 tweens in the house - yesterday I spent all night going:
johnathan get away from brandon
brandon leave johnathan alone
hey - if i hear you one more time your going to bed
turn down the damn tv
give the ds back to your brother just because he put it down to go pee does its not fair game
knock it the fuck off for christ sake - i'm calling dad. *disclaimer they only get this one when I ready to blow my top
Edamame...how old is Bug?
I don't have a big gap between the kids. But yes, it's weird to have to divide time between two of them. I mostly spent my time with the Bean and very little with Sprout. Only now after a year, do I feel that I'm developing a relationship with her.
This is a weird analogy, but it's kind of like eating at a buffet. You don't get a large helping of any one thing, but smaller samples of lots of things. I don't have as much time one on one with either of my kids, but I do have a lot of time with them together.
