    How on earth do you manage?? Seriously, you guys must have super human powers. I am soo tired at the moment and have spent the last 5 weeks doing diddly-squat. I've always wanted at least 3 children and now I'm not sure how I'd manage!

    I have a 2 and half year old and a 16 month old, and if i'm honest i'm not really coping just surviving. just hoping the m/s gives up soon so i can be a good mummy again! just keep thinking its short term and the reward will be worth it! thank goodness they both still have daytime naps!!!

    I have a 20 month old and a little boy who is nearly 3! it is hard - but you just get on with it. I physically just crumble once they are in bed at 7pm - but i am lucky that i have a great oh and the kids are in a great routine!!
    my idea of a good nights sleep has defininitely changed - used to be that i needed 12 hours and a lie in was til gone 10am!!!! - now i am relieved if i get to sleep til 7.30am!!
    my advice to 1st time mums - make the most of it now! Life will never be the same again! and it is the best!!!! :cloud9:

    I have 2 young children .

    Laylas 3 and half
    Finnleys 15 Months

    And baby corey is due in March . I will have 3 under 4 !! .
    This baby wasnt planned But we manage , The kids have been sick lately and it is hard !.
    But You just forget yourself and muddle on for the kids sake ... I must admit having layla at pre school does help a hell of alot finnley is at the stage in to everything , But i think of it this way next year in september layla will be at full time school and a few months after finnley will be at pre school and then there will only be me and baby at home :) .
    The pros way out weigh the cons . xxxxxx .

    I have Ryan 13, Courteney 9 and Lily May 5, and are all in full time school yay! I dont think I could have managed if Lily May was any younger!

    Ryan is self sufficient really and does his own thing. So I might aswell just have the two and one on the way..lol.

    It's funny this thread came up. I remember being pregnant with my son and sleeping alot feeling sick etc and now I'm thinking that I was quite the wimp :p I'm sick, tired, and chasing a 2 year old lol. But it's like the other ladies said you just do. I've been in bed quite a few nights right after my son - he's in bed at 7:30 Im asleep by 8 that type of thing lol.
