I honestly thought I was going to have it easier than I anticipated with two kids. When we brought our newborn home, and my 2 year olds first reaction was to give him some of his toy cars to play with, I thought that I had gotten off easy. I truly thought to myself "No jealousy? How did I get so lucky?". It was soon afterwards that I realized, I'm an idiot!
Jealousy may not be an issue, but I'm being driven insane by the sounds of two children crying. Between my oldest one's tantrums, and my younger one being a week old, someone is always crying. And if it's not the noise, it's the smells. My 2 year old has yet to be potty trained, so I am now changing the diapers of two human beings. One of whom craps like a man, and the other who shoots out this messy waste that finally stopped being black. Add in a small case of sleep deprivation, and you get a man on the verge of sensory overload.
And if all of that wasn't enough, with two kids and a wife on the mend from childbirth, all attempts to "relieve stress" are completely thwarted. Doesn't matter the time of day, as soon as you start looking to "relax", someone always seems to "relax"-block. It's honestly like living with my parents again. The sneaking, the same, the remembering to clear the browsing history.
So I'm a little on edge, and desperately look for a good nights sleep. However since I have a little rooster that goes off every couple of hours, it may be awhile until I get it.
