Re: Mommas with more then 1 toddler...

My son was 2 when I had my daughter and now they are 3 and 1. We are a very "routined" family. I never wanted to be but it saves us most days. We have breakfast around the same time, play, lunch, nap.....you get it. It's not a set time but one thing happens after the next and it works. I also used to wear the baby alot. She was always in a sleepy wrap and then a slingeze.

Gosh.. I guess I also just take it one day at a time and roll with the punches. LOL After a while the lack of sleep and stressful days become normal and you just make it through those days and hope for a better tomorrow.

Mine are all between 21 and 23 months apart except for this last baby and while it's NUTS sometimes having 3 and soon 4 age 6 and under, you make changes as needed and make it work.

Just don't put too many rules/restrictions on yourself and be flexable. I think hard times come when you have certain expectations and they don't seem to work out.. that causes stress. kwim?
