This weekend has been so hard for me. I have been crying so easily lately. Yesterday I started crying because my husband and my mother in law set up the babies room. I felt dumb because I couldnt do it with my husband. I just get too tired and I can not lift heavy things. I started crying because I felt so useless. Today my daughter and I were diving to IKEA and I started crying thinking about my daughter and how she has no idea how much these two little babies are going to change her life and how it is going to be hard on her at first. I feel so bad for her. She has been the center of our lives for 3 years, things are going to change so much for her when the babies come. One of the biggest reasons we wanted to have a second (turned out to be second and third) was to give her a sibling, someone to share her childhood and life with, I hope it doesn't take too long for her to realize that the twins will be a blessing.
Awe, I know I've been staying at my mom's during the week and coming home on the weekends, every time I left my husband I balled! So happy I'm home for good now. Your little girl will love her twin siblings!
man I feel ya! We visited my dad and he told me my mom felt like she had failed us kids not teaching us how to clean, because my brothers now depend on her to do things that as adult young men they shouldn't rely on their mommy to do, but there was a hint of 'you could do better too missy' in the conversation, and I handled it well until my hubby started telling me how he heard that hint in there too, and then started talking about how I didn't back him up when we went canoeing two weeks ago (neither of us were any good at first and I was screaming at him every time he did something wrong, not proud of myself but I did apologize) and many other things happened and I started bawling, then while we were talking he started playing a game on his phone, and I got even more upset because he wasn't 'tuned in' to me, and that was Friday, and I've cried or stressed out every day since then... today I feel a little bit better, but still an emotional train wreck.
some days i'm like that too. when i get into an argument with my son now i just can't help but start crying. or sometimes just thinking about how much of my time and energy this newborn will require at first. i feel so bad because it's always only just been him and i for the last 12 years. he's not gonna understand why it's always about the baby.
a couple of weeks ago i was at a big outdoor festival/concert with my sister and my son having a great time. one of my favorite bands started singing a song and i seriously almost lost it right there in front of everyone.
