Dear Child #2:

What happened?

You see, you were supposed to be the “easy baby.”

Your brother? A colicky, extremely clingy, “high need baby” as described by Dr. Sears.

So everybody assured me that with you, I could expect the laid back, happy baby that would sleep wherever you put her.  The one you could pack up in the car and take on a trip with no problems.  The one who would lay calmly in her car seat while we lunched at a restaurant.  The baby who was just glad to be there.

But I didn’t get that.

You are very different from your brother, but you also are a high need baby.

You have difficulty sleeping, you are a fussy eater, you loudly and violently let people know when you are even the slightest bit unhappy, you are unrelenting in your need to have your way, you won’t eat with anyone but me, and you are basically making my life a heck of a lot harder than I thought it would be.  You are a delight in so many ways, but you are by no means “easy.”

Your Mama is old.  She is too tired for this.

Can you please be a bit more like those other babies we saw at the park last week? 

You know, the ones who weren’t driving their moms crazy?
