It’s been much harder than I imagined for me. My oldest was really jealous no matter how much I tried to do all the right things to help them bond. It did get better with time though, 80% of the time they both love playing together. What was the hardest for me was combining both their schedules and that they both needed and wanted my full attention at the same time and fought to have it. I had to figure out how to play with them and make sure they were both learning what they should be for thier ages or just keep them entertained long enough for me to cook a meal without one or both of them crying or burning everything or me loosing my mind and crying. To this day I can’t get both of them to sleep at the same time. I swear they will always and forever have stinky diapers BOTH AT THE SAME TIME. It’s hectic and crazy and teaching my oldest how to be easy and share has been intense for us. but seeing my 2 year old actually teach things to my 1 year old makes me so effing happy and proud. Watching them learn to have fun together, how they literally scream and squeal in excitement when they play together is just beautiful.
