Sitting here, listening to my daughter cry hysterically, I wonder if it's really the right thing to do. I mean, I enjoy reading, can't I just sit in there and read until she falls asleep like we've been doing for the last week? Is it really fair to her that, because I'm having another baby, she doesn't get the comfort of knowing we're right there?
Except that she used to be fine with it. And we've lived in this house for 2 weeks now, it's not all that new. It shouldn't be so scary for her anymore. She just thinks she's missing something if we're not there with her.
Knowing that doesn't make me feel like any less of a bad mom though.
