Working Mom with two kids

For the longest time I was a working mom with one kid. My son was the only child for 7 years. He received 100% of my attention and now at the age of 10 he has a little sister who is 2 1/2 years old. Not receiving all the attention after his little sister was born was a very big adjustment for him to deal with. So I promised myself that I would still find time for him and I do things together while my daughter played with Daddy. I wish that I was able to do this more than I do but life takes over and the day is gone before you know it.

When we first decided to have another baby my thoughts immediately went to my son and how this effect him. But you know everyone adapts to the life around them and my son adapted very well. He's an AWESOME big brother!

Don't get me wrong he gets aggravated, then she gets chimes in which ultimately leads to mom getting stressed especially in the mornings when we're trying to get out the door. Then I see them in the evening laying on the couch together sharing a snack or when we go for a walk in the neighborhood and she wants to hold her big brothers hand. That just melts my heart and that's when I stop and think that even though we have some rough times I just couldn't imagine my life any different.

    Kat,
    I totally know what you mean about wanting to have your one-on-one time with your older one. I try to commit to doing that. I usually put the little guy to bed first then older dear son and I have our story time and getting ready for bed special time.
