I'm in exactly the same situation as you guys, DD1 is 19 months and DD2 is 10 weeks old. Boy it gets so hard looking after both of them. DD2 wants to be held the whole time and DD1 just wants my attention. Thank god DD1 goes to daycare three days a week, even though I feel really guilty dropping her off those three days. But the good thing is that she loves going to daycare because I think she gets bored at home.

Even if they have not previously been in care, if they are happy to go then daycare can provide them with something special that is just for them and a little extra routine never hurts either.

I have 2 healthy boys aged 2 1/2 years old and 10 1/2 months old. It is so freaking hard some days. It honestly feels like I cant make them happy. One of them always seems to be whinging or crying. Somedays I just loose it and yell. I hate myself for doing that. I really do. Sometimes I think what my life would be like if I never had them. I want to have a hobby but I haven't done anything for my myself in a long time, I dont know what I'm interested in.
They are the apples to my eye. But it feels like the moment my first was born a part of myself was lost. When I catch up with a lifelong friend I have nothing to talk about literally. She is planning holidays and having fun adventures. Whereas the most exciting thing that happened to me this week is DS1 eczema has cleared up.
Gosh I sound horrible.

Starla you don't sound horrible at all!! You sound like an amazing mumma
I also feel that a part of me died when DD was born ... it's strange isn't it?

My DD1 LOVES daycare. She asks to go on the days she doesn't and often I have to drag her out of there because she is too busy. Then I feel sad because she prefers to be there rather than with me because I am so grumpy and tired

I feel terrible tonight. We keep our dog food outside in a big tin and yesterday I must have left the lid off. DH comes home tonight and went to feed the dog and found our cat in there. Quite stiff and rather dead.
Questioned DS1 who happily told me that he put the cat in there and put the lid on. Can't believe I did something that meant my child killed an animal. Complete accident and he wouldn't have understood but I feel terrible for the poor cat.
