  • Yes. It's been 2.5 years and he's still jealous! He's not mean to my son or anything but they are definitely not best pals lol. In fact, now that my son is in bed the doggy is at my feet!

  • LOL...well, at first I was going to answer "yes"...because at first, I was definitely more occupied with our first baby where he used to be the center of attention. Now that we have a 5 year old, 2 year old, and one on the way, he probably gets more attention than he wants! The kids wont leave him alone.

  • Yes, I've been feeling guilty about that and trying to find more time to let our dog run and play ball with him.

  • Our first is due in October, and I have a 13 year old cat. I am worried for her because she is used to being my center of attention. When I got married it was hard for her to share even then - but at least my hubby could pay her attention.. I think she's going to be really upset when the baby comes.

  • No. When my kids were little, I still made every effort to give just as much attention to my kitties as I always had. Now that the kids are school-age, our cats get their attention too, lol. Bunch of spoiled housecats :-)
