    Default What age does it get easier?

    To keep your house in order, do the shopping, cook dinner. Basically just run a household. DD 5.5 , DS almost 4 and DSS 6m. I thought the light was at the end of the tunnel right when getting pregnant with DSS but I seriously have no time for anything. When does it get that little bit easier? I know it will always be busy but when do they stop being naughty? And do they ever stop fighting!? When do meal times stop being a drama?

    No advice, just offering some hugs. I'm expecting my 2nd in under 3 weeks so it will be hectic around my place too x

    I've let my standards drop with 3 but even the basics are starting to slip. It stresses me out so much. Although the two eldest fighting is a bit of a killer. So mentally draining.

    TBH, I don't know that it gets easier, it just gets different. I have kids that are 8, 5 and 2 and the school aged ones have there own different challenges! My Dad's always said "Little kids, little problems. Bigger kids, bigger problems" and so far, I reckon he's right!

    I have a nearly 7y, 5y and 3month and the last few weeks have been horrible I feel like everything is way too much, trying to keep house in order, all the school stuff, all the appointment just exhausting

    The first 2 months with dd3 arriving were pretty easy hopefully things go back like that

    I reckon once my youngest (dd2) was 4 older was 6 it was pretty easy except for dd1 attitude
    So once dd3 is 3/4 life will be easier haha

    My mum says it never gets easier.... When they're little you don't get sleep. .. you're running after them etc...when they're older and moved out you don't get sleep because you worry about them etc. Lol.
    Guess that wasn't helpful. :/

    I don't know. Mine are 6, nearly 5 and my youngest is 2 now, and it's still difficult. I'm hoping once my youngest is over the terrible 2's it might get slightly easier

    We do online grocery shopping which makes it a bit easier, but cooking dinner is always chaos.

    On the whole though, I've found the jump from 2 to 3 children really hard. My two eldest used to never fight, but after I had #3 the dynamics changed and they fight heaps now.

    (Sorry, that probably wasn't very helpful lol)
