i have 2 children who are 1 turning 2 in august and a baby who is 6 months. i got pregnant rather quickly and didnt really want anymore kids because giving labour scared me. i feel that i wish i only had the one child. i grew so attached to him when he was first born and then BAM i got pregnant and i was so mad.i actually thought of an abortion but said no. now my oldest always wants me to play or do activities with him witch i love to do but i never have the time because my younger son is so stuck to me. it sometimes makes me mad that i cant spend equal amount of time with both my kids. no one wants to hold on or do something with the other. so its always been me and my kids or just one kid. my babys daddy's parents always take my older son to places or do things with him. witch i cant because no one wants the younger one because he cant do things yet. is it wrong of me to feel jealous that i cant have time with my oldest cause im always with my youngest?

You absolutely are NOT a bad mom. You're just a mom with two very young, needy kids. Life is, definitely, crazy for you right now, but I guarantee it will get easier as they both get older.

If you can figure out doing stuff while baby is in a sling it will make life a little easier.

And hopefully someone else who's actually BEEN in that situation will respond with other advice soon. :)
