I have a 22 month old and twin 11 month olds. I don't get any breaks away from all the kids, sometimes I'll get a break away with 1, but never by myself.
I feel I have a good bond with the oldest and one of the twins. Both twins (preemies) were very fussy , but one took a lot longer to settle down. He had me up every 1 1/2 hours for months to eat, he's still super sensitive and whines easily and often. I feel horrible because I have so little patience for him. He seems to live to push my buttons, though I know he's not doing it on purpose. He poops as soon as I put a clean diaper on, rarely naps but whines because he's tired. I see my brother who was a whiny and tantrumy child, I see my BIL who is hard to deal with (he looks just like them) But he's his own person and I do love him, but he "gets" to me. I wasn't the favorite and it hurts, what can I do?
