Of little ones close in age. I have been taking care of DS who is about 11 months and my niece who is 3 months. I am exhausted. I have no clue how you gals do it everyday.

    It showed me how much patience I really have. I think it was meant to get me ready for later. My oldest is 5 now, and possibly on the lower end of the Autism spectrum. Plus we had our dd almost 9 months ago.

    Quoting Kaya529:

    Ouch, DS had colic for a month and a half (I was saved by Lady Gaga) and that was difficult. You are one strong mama.



    Quoting ack86:

    My two oldest are 13 months apart. It would have been easier if my second hadn't screamed for almost 5 months. Otherwise it wasn't to bad.

    I want that!! I know it's not going to be very relaxing, but I love happy chaos. DD is almost 7 months and we aren't TTC but not preventing #2 from happening. Hoping!

    For me it has taught me patience just having DS. Before him I had none.

    Oh yes. My oldest two are 17, then 6, 4, and 2, so the older three help me out. It's still tough though, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. We want one more, if I get pregnant this year. If not, we are done.

    Kids have a great way of showing us what we can really handle :)

But she does all the naughty stuff but multiplys it


    Quoting Kaya529:

    Did the copying help her to reach milestones earlier?



    Quoting holmes212:

    You just reminded me of an incident at the babysitters. She watches 2 little girls 4 and 6. They love helping out with Aiden. One day they were helping her change him. When she pulled off his diaper they pointed at his peepee, whispered to each other and ran off. They forgot to leave the wipes and pants when they ran. My poor babysitter had to chase them down. Just as she got the wipes back Aiden peed on her...lol.

    My kids are 16 mos apart. Its tough but getting easier as they get older. Now that my youngest can walk things are much better! Her & her big brother are little buddies now :-)
