Then or Now What is harder???

When the babies first came home the feelings of being very overwhelmed and tired all the time caused me to panic just a bit, then I kept thinking all I have to do is survive the 1st year then things will get easier. I lied the 1st year was easier.

What was I thinking at least during the 1st year you could put them down and know that when you came back they would still be there, the need to put everything out of reach wasn't such a pressing need. Other then crying they weren't very loud and they all cuddled together.

Now, they all babble really loud, 2 are super escape artists, one whines all the time and there is no more cuddling only restling. And its amzing that even though our livingroom isn't that big someone is always missing/hiding.

I think that if i survive until they are 2 that will be the bigger miracle

Hate to break it to you, but age 2-3 doesn't get any better! lol! They fight all the time - hit, bite, push, etc., which then causes them to scream and cry ALL the time. They TRY to talk to you, but you can't understand what they are saying half (okay, MOST) of the time. Then there's the fact that they are now taller, and better at climbing, so they can get into even MORE stuff! Oh how I wish they were babies again!!!

LOL! Sorry Michelle, today was a particularly BAD day! Some things do get better - there are "goods" and "bads" with every age! :)

The past 2 days here have been SUPER bad days. We should meet at Market Mall once you get settled with the new baby and what not
