  • to me it was a bigger adjustment to go from 1 to 2 vs. from 2 to 3. it wasn't that hard to go from 2 to 3 ...... well maybe harder to find a babysitter lmao

  • LOL. I went from one to two in two years, got divorced, and married a man with 2 kids. Now we have a son that is 2.5 as well. It's really no "harder," just more expensive and a little challenging coordinating schedules. (And with my 5 it's also harder going anywhere - we had to get a big SUV, and we have to have at least 2 hotel rooms when we travel.)

  • I'm finding 3 harder. As weird as it is I found having just 1 to be the most difficult because he was bored and needed me to entertain him constantly, it seemed to get better once I had 2, plus now they play together and entertain each other. Having 3 is seeming more difficult though trying to get anything done and get out of the house. I went to the library and the older two both ran off in different directions and I had the baby, it was horrible.

  • I just had my 3rd baby 5 weeks ago and boy let me tell you it is rough. 3 is definitely harder. I'm with MYBELLA81. lol

  • It was much easier to go from 2 to 3 kids than it was going from 1 to 2.

    Going to the store was a bit more of a challenge, but there are always ways to work around that so you don't have to take all the kids out, and if I even went to the mall or target or something while DH was working, I took a friend along :)
