Does anyone have children really close in age?

I have a 2 & 1 year old boys and I love being their mum but recently I’m hating it so much, my 2 year old is either the nicest little boy or he’s the total opposite and he’s awful to his brother. Today is the day he’s being awful, he keeps pushing him in the face and it’s knocking him over so my youngest is just crying. I just feel like all I do is shout at my 2 year old today and then when their dad comes home he’s the fun one and I just look like the shit mum. It’s draining the life out me. I don’t know what to do.. everyone says it will past and they won’t remember but I just feel guilty that I’m the one always playing referee and telling them off 😭

I’ve got a 3 year old and 1 year old. Both their birthdays are November and there kid literally just under a 2 year gap between them. And I said the same to my partner I feel like I’m constantly having to tell my oldest son no. Since my oldest started nursery a couple weeks ago he’s been a lot nicer to his brother but can also push the boundaries a lot more too. But his younger brother has now started to give it back so the oldest has started to back off. Also now that the youngest actually wants to play with the toys more I’ve found they get on a lot better! I noticed a lot of the time my oldest did the naughty stuff was to get attention, even if he was being told off he was still getting more interaction at that time than if he wasn’t. So I started trying to really structure naps for the youngest and making sure he was in his cot. So my oldest got that 1:1 time and knew it was coming. But don’t let it drag you down. Us mamas with any child need a medal x

I have a almost 2 year old boy in March and I have a 8month old boy It’s a difficult age Sometimes my nearly 2 year old is really good and ovo sometimes not so much I have found myself shouting more recently but I’m trying to stop that and try gentle parenting bit more But not always easy My eldest is normally nice to his little brother but there is times where he doesn’t wanna let him have anything toys wise and gets angry with him like moves him out the way and that but it’s just kids for you they will learn with you keep telling them to behave and be nice to one another which I tell them daily and my little boy always says sorry now when he’s hurt his brother But it will pass and there’s going to be times where they will get on and other not it’s just kids and siblings for you they learning just try be calm and tell them everyday to be nice I find it hard at times but don’t stress yourself to much or feel bad Xx
