  • Yes. Once you have more children than hands it gets more difficult exponentially. (I am a mom of four sons.) :-D

  • I think it'd depend upon the age of the kids. I have 4 children all within 5.5 years and it's definitely challenging to be there for the needs of all the kids. They are all at very different stages, but still quite needy, and there's only so much of me to go around.

  • I don't think it was. The first few months were difficult but then we got in the swing of things. Mainly it was when I was alone w all three at first! I felt greatly out numbered but you adjust and get it to work for you...what other choice do we have? Lol. GOOD LUCK!

  • i really didn't find it that much harder...mine are 7, 3, 8 mo. i would give my older 2 responsibilities not only for themselves, but for their baby bro. like they are in charge of picking out and putting on their own clothes (yep some days it gets interesting what they put on), they are to keep up with their own shoes (some days we have shoe hunts), my 3 yo will often be in charge of throwing the dirty diapers away. i have also had them be in charge or keeping baby happy when i need to use the restroom. once we got into the hang or things it really seemed easier!
