Today's focus seems to have landed on how to prepare (and love-up) my sweet 2-year-old before this baby girl comes into the world. I'm having the typical anxieties about how he will react...I have a feeling nursing time will be pretty brutal, as Jones is already mama-clingy these days. And I'm pretty sure he totally gets that there is change coming, as he has already started wanting me to hold him and rock him "like baby" more and more.
I am reading up and asking advice on how to handle all of this, and for now, holding tight to the boy while also trying to lay down some discipline as his tantrums and willfulness seem to have spiked to the "terrible twos" level literally overnight. One thing I have thought might help with the behavior issues is to create a reward system for chores.
