J. laughs and cries at the same time when I get home from teaching. He gets very impatient for me to put my stuff down and pick him up.

I've also noticed that E. is more willing to sit in my lap nowadays, probably a result of losing so much time with me to the baby.

It's that balance thing, isn't it? I know my kids compete for attention a lot with me--actually, T. does it more. As soon as she sees me spending more time with L. (her perception) she clamors for attention!

B has had a really tough time this year since I'm home all day with M while she's at school. He goes to preschool for a couple of hrs, but it's not the SAME. We go shopping, we see friends, we go to the park. It irks here that she's missing out. Regardless of how much fun she has at school. She's getting over it, or getting used to it. But it was a rough transition!

L. always had a hard time when he started kindergarten and T. was in preschool. And it was completely understandable, but hard to work through, too. I'm glad B. is settling in...
