  • normal, you ask
    IF you were not tired, you would not be doing your job as a mom

  • It is normal to feel that way. I was overwhelmed with my first child at times, but when you have another child, the 2nd child is easier because you already know what to expect. They go through phases, as he gets older it won't be as tiresome.

  • Normal, that is why we spaced our girls so far apart... they are 17, 11 and 4! lol

  • My kids are 16 months apart. The first one is now 2 1/2, the second is 14 months. When it was just me and my oldest, it totally overwhelmed me. But the second baby is easier because you already know what to do, and now that they are toddlers they play together. I think God gives you the grace and patience to deal with whatever you have :) The more responsibility you have, the more you are able to handle. I can't imagine adding a third to the mix!

  • I have 4 :) 7, 3, 19 months, and 5 months. 4 is just as easy as two, more diapers, more mouths to feed, but they entertain eachother all the same.
