Hi mommies

We are considering having another baby after 4 long years.
I hear crazy stories from my friends that have two kids, is it really that difficult to handle two little ones?

I'm pregnant with our second right now, so I'll let you know towards the end of October lol. My son is in his terrible two's so I have a feeling it won't be easy. Oh, and he's the very jealous type lol.

Well my kids are 7 yrs apart so I consider myself as only having one LO and a big kid lol.. I am expecting though so soon I will have a big kid and two Lo's. We'll see how it goes but I don't expect it to be too bad. Your 4 yr old will probably start to mature more when you have the baby.

I didn't have any trouble going from 1 to 2. My boys are 20 months apart.

I just had my third and my second and first two are 5 and 7. My second son is being terrible right now and I am very obviously sleep deprived lol. It was so much easier after my second son was born because my oldest was a super easy kid who still snapped and rarely through tantrums. II think it depends on the kids honestly.

part of it is your own mindset. part of it is the children's and parents' personalities.
most have a few rough patches during the transition, but overall I don't think it is bad unless you think nothing is going to change

My kids are 4 years apart. They are 5 and 1 now. It is difficult some days but so worth it when they are being nice to each other. Cutest thing ever!
