    Spirited children are in a word, intense. They are flat stick, on the go, every waking moment. They demand more time, more interaction more stimulation. There is no off button god love them lol they also tend to throw lots of tantrums under 4. Often it can be confused with ADHD when it's not (although some parents with children with ADHD will describe them as spirited).

    My spirited boy has only shown signs of improvement going on 5. He will always be so, just a little less intense... lol

    They sure are a handful!

    I think this is why I look at members who constantly post when they have younger kids. No way could I use a computer (or read, or do anything!!) before dd was over 3, and even then I could not post much before she hit school age.

    I used to have to stop what I did mid everything with DS. Either he was clinging to my leg, or he wanted a drink or he would constantly raid the cupboards. I would have visitors and have to cut them off mid sentence to retrieve DS from doing *something*. It was funny looking back, I would hear him open the pantry door, then this running on the floor boards DH and I used to say it he was like a Chucky doll

    That is what nap time (however briefly) and bed time are for. And don't forget "at Nana's house" time.

    Mobile internet baby. Thats how i get everything done. If i cant do it via email/sms i cant do it. I cant talk on the phone without "whos that? whos that you're talking to? I want to talk to them! Mum, mum! I talk to them! Is it Pa Sue!? I want to tell him about our new fence!! Mum, MUM, I NEED TO TALK TO PA SUE!"

    So i get opportunity to while they are happily play. Although tonight DS bit DD in the bath and lordy. Needed a big glass of wine when I got them both calm and in bed.

    Aah, no nap time for mine. Up until about 8 months she would fall asleep feeding and would stay asleep for up to 10 minutes provided I didn't cough, sneeze, or otherwise move at all. My mum took her for the first time without me when she was 6. Night time would be spent making sandwiches and other quick-grab food for the next day.

    Well my youngest is definetely a spirted child!!!!

    One that dislikes sleep very very much. Day sleeps have come to a stop.

    Now gets roughly 6 hrs of sleep, some times less.

    Oh and i refere to her as a goldfish as her attention is shocking!

    We dont read books, as i open the front cover & bam shes off.

    No games. The only game that last is hide & seek thou she gets tired of hidjng & gives her self up.

    & more arghhhhhhhhh.

    My eldesr thou ... COMPLETE opposite!!!
    Mostly quiet, plays on her own & dislikes her sister
