Numbers speller

Since I have Baby Jay, I neglected my Little J. I feel guilty. I seldom have time for her, not to mention teaching her. Last time I would read with her or teach her in writing, colouring or spelling. Little J has learn to recognise alphabets when she was 1 year plus. She used to spell words pretty fast, but I guess if you did not continue to practise, your memory tends to deteriorate. *wink* Over the weekend, I asked her to pick a book and she choose this number book. She still remember her ABC, but she spelt at a slower pace. Again, she was confused with the capital letter "L" and "I". She thought that was small "l" but it was in fact capital "I". I need to correct her on that, but other than that slight mistake, she still recognise her letters. She spelt out all those numbers from 1 to 30 that night.

Little J start to be jealous of Baby Jay yet? My friend's two year old starting to be very jealous of her baby. Any advice? This makes me think twice if I want a 2nd child :(

One of the reason that I'm delaying having a second one is because I'm afraid that I might neglect Ryan...real dilema...

Dear Smallkucing and Daddy,

Sooner or later you would want to think of having 2nd one, a companion for your kid. there isnt any advice from me, but what I did was to prepare my Little J earlier, during my pregnancy. Everyday I told her that she will have a companion, new baby. I involve her in my pregnancy, i.e. listen and touch my tummy, shopping for baby stuff etc. Now I get her to fetch diapers, water bottle for her Baby Jay, which she is very much willing to. Of course, once a while she will get jealous but that is normal reaction. Just have to make sure she is not neglected and left out. It is easy say than done, trust me! I am doing it now. hahah!
