Newborns, Toddlers and Teens

When it comes to kids, Ive heard people complain about newborns, the terrible 2s and teenagers as being the "worst" age. I dont have teens yet, but actually I liked my kids when they were newborns. Sure I was sleepy, but they were asleep most of the day. And 2 yr olds can be a challenge, but I didnt think my kids were that bad at that age.
My youngest is 5 months old and I remember thinking age 4-6 months was the "worst" with my other 2 kids as well. Theyre clingy at this age, want to be entertained every minute theyre awake, went from napping most of the day to 1-2× a day tops, & honestly the games we play are boring, lol. I swear im sick of peek-a-boo and while he thinks rolling a ball back and forth for half an hour is the time of his life, I cant wait to switch it up. I swear Candyland has never looked so good! LOL
What age do you think is the "worst"?

I think the worst is toddlerhood in general. The time when they throw every book off the bookcase and while you're cleaning it up they're climbing on the table and trying to fly. I can handle mouthy kids and screaming kids....but chasing the ninja kids wear me out.

I just told my 16 yo I couldnt wait for him to move out. He pretended to be horribly offended.

I only have a one year old. But he didn't sleep all day. He slept every few hours then was up. Including at night.

My DH has teens. If say the worst age is teen girl.

So far, I haven't experienced the "worst stage" with my kiddos. I've loved every stage!

 Toddler age. I could pull my hair out thinking about it. I love the newborn, 6+ age, and teen ages.

I asked my 12 year old if he would consider finding a job and an apartment soon. LOL

I have an 11 week old and one who turns two in 3 weeks.
I got lucky and both were great newborns. Dd2 is still sleeping 24/7 and only really cries when see gassy. She doesn't cry when she's hungry, when she's hungry she sucks on her hand lol

And dd1 is good too. She doesn't mess, or throw tantrums. But she's developing a teenaged attitude -_- I think the terrible twos are coming on
