Holy crap! How the hell do you do it?!? I had my two yr old goddaughter today with my almost 14 mth old ds. My oldest is eight and doesnt require me chasing him every two seconds..and im exhausted! Between tantrums..shouts of NO! MINE! Time outs for hitting (my goddaughter, not ds)...snacks...baths...oh boy i cant wait for her to go home. Im going to shower and go to bed as soon as ds goes to sleep at 9. My mom was a nanny my whole life and now i have so much respect for her for having these kids in her home. Kudos ladies.

I had 3 kids in 40 months.  Yeah, that was pretty insane...it's getting better now.

Well I don't chase my daughter around, everything is pretty much babyproof in our home. My daughter is 2 and my son is 1, it's not really that hard. Laundry takes a bit more time though.

 I think it is easier when they are your own. I did it mine are 18 months apart. Yes at times it got hectic but again with your own you have your own routine and systems in place.

My kids are 13, 13, 10, 8, 8, 4 & 2

I've been doing double and triple toddlers forever lol, when they're yours and you have a routine it's not ALWAYS crazy...lol

I had 3 in 19 months. It was not easy keeping up with them.

Haha, it's probably really hectic because they're not used to each other. Mine are 18 months apart and they're now 3 and 4 and best friends! Add in another one that's not a sibling though, and forget about it! Haha!

It's both better and worse when they're both yours. lol
