it def was a difficult day yesterday, little things here and there make me sad but i was in full blown crying yesterday everytime i thought about it, my mind knows DS will be just fine and great at being a big brother but my heart hurts that he just doesnt realize what he is exactly giving up. i gave him a big boy room when he turned 4 so he would never associate losing his bedroom because of the baby, there's a room upstairs besides DS's new room that will now be his playroom and he knows when Julianna gets bigger like him she will as well move upstairs. he kisses and hugs my belly and tells me he loves her and im sure he does but i hope he still feels the same way when she arrives.
im so happy im not the only one feeling this way DH says im just scared of the unknown and he's probably right.
I've been having days like that too Karen. Some days I can handle everything and other days I'm on the brink of depression and crying at every thought. It's SO hard. *hugs* I hope today is better!
I'm in a uggh mood today..dh worked all day and then tells me he's going out to dinner with a Co worker he was home 2 hours and he probably won't be back until after I go to bed...we can never just have a day to ourselves as a family
Oh Karen! That really sucks. :( I can understand why you'd be upset. You deserve a break too!!! :(
Right there with ya ;)
I was commenting to someone a few weeks ago that I'm not as emotional with this baby as I was with DS, but boy has that changed.
I am super sensitive. I'm worried about DS and sad about the loss of our special fun times together. (I know we will still have them, but alot of it will be shared now)
He's going to be a great big brother! and I'm excited for him, but it is going to be a big change. I find myself crawling into his bed just to watch him sleep.
I think alot of it is the notion of how fast he is growing up. How fast this little girl is going to grow up too. I wish I could hang on to these years longer.
I feel the same way too. Not so much for DS because he has been through it before and he is older, which I THINK will help him adjust to a baby better. Although he is still a big Momma's boy. But I do worry about how DD wil adjust to not being the baby anymore. She is excited now, and I think at first she will be he smothering, mothering type of big sister, but I don't want her to resent the baby.
I does make me sad that they are both growing up so fast though!
omg the other day i was tempted to sleep with him in just to sleep with him.. i didnt but i had really thought about it :( I know he'll be fine and a great big brother. But everything will be shared as well.. no more us and him. Im trying to do some special things before the baby comes like going to a race track and taking him to an indoor waterpark since the summer will pretty much be stuck at home
