Well, having my uncle aunty and their 16 month old son live with us and our 9 month old daughter has made us more determined (esp me) not to have a second child anytime too soon. This past month has been a nightmare as each child is picking up the others bad habits faster then any of us 4 parents can stop the previous one, plus each couple have their own parenting style which is starting to clash. While we let our daughter do some things they don’t like their son doing those things so punish our daughter. They let their son drink Coke and Coffee (in small amounts) while I am horrified by that thought, but my daughter gets grumpy as sh can not share the coke/coffee that everyone aside from her is drinking. (she still has not had even a small taste thankfully.) While I am happy they are staying and are moving closer to us, I can not wait for them to go so our glimpse into the future of 2 kids can come to an end and things can settle down for our little ones sake.
