Have your second child first

I recently saw a book with this title - "how to have your second child first".  I haven't read it (because I don't have time to read anymore, and I've already had my first and second child), but I think it's a great concept.  If only I could've known the things I know now when Annnika was a baby.  Annika has a tradition of spending Thursday mornings with her grandma, so it's just me and Emmett on those mornings.  I continually find myself amazed at how easy it is to just have one little baby to look after.  Why did I find it so difficult the first time around?!?

You're not alone! I think most mothers feel that way when their second child comes around.

Sometimes I wish I could go back and re-do things the 1st time. Looking back, I feel so incompetent!

I'd be interested to hear what the book has to say because experience is really the only thing that prepares you to handle it better a second or subsequent time.

And, well, without that first child, you also get no experience!!
