my husband is working out of town and we have a new baby in the house too. my 2 yr old is happy to have a little sisster and trys to help. I have had no jelousy issues what so ever (i am surprized, i was expecting to) well saturday he fell off the counter-he saw me coming and knew he was going to be in trouble and fell in his hurry to get down. he has a nice goose egg center forhead. (mom of two older boys too) my husband drove in late saturday night to spend a single day with us for the frist time in two weeks. all day sunday the 2yr old had tempertanurms over everything from us saying no to him droping a toy. i was worried that mabie he hit harder then i thought, but my husband left sunday night and suddenly the 2ye old was back to normal. When his dad first left two weeks ago i had to deal with 2 yr old grabing his travel pellow and blanket any time the front door opend and him saying "go with dadda" it lasted for 3 days. i belive 2 yr old was pushing buttens sunday "to see if dad was going to stay or leave agin" In one of the parenting classes i took, young children going through a devorce tended to do just that if the parents decided to try agin. i am not good at explaning it. but if it is what he is doing then how can i get him to understand that this is the way it has to be for now.
my husband took the job because a bills are overdue, and the company has worked with us so much -he worked 4 days then had to take 3 weeks off on account of my pg getting vary bad and life threatning. B the company is expanding here so by mid/late summer he will be home.
