    My three are only 3yr3mth from oldest to youngest. They are AWSOME!
    Yes there are good days and bad days but there isn't anymore than when it was 1 then 2.
    The initial newborn part was hard, but it was with the first two aswell. Once the physical dependence eases (can walk/feed/play solo) it is great.
    Watching the dynamics between the kids is great.
    Wish I could have more (medically not possible now) but very grateful that we didn't stop at two.
    In saying all that I think the personalities of my children works and medical problems don't affect daily life too much.
    Ps. There are four hands between you so that argument is invalid.

    I am waiting though until the boys are older, in school what have you to really think about no3.

    This has all been very helpful.
    Ah - the first sign - a name change! Is the brood mare kicking down the gates of retirement
    Haha I only tease as I am also not sold on the idea of 'two only'.
    I love how this thread is more positive than negative, I find IRL people always say 'don't have 3, 3 is awful' so it's nice to read these.

    Lol the Brood Mare is sniffing around all suspicious like right now

    I am the same, 'Be happy with the 2 you have! Don't be greedy' 'Be happy with the kids you have'
    But I still feel so incomplete...

    DH keeps teasing me though. He admittedly told me he isn't ready for me. I get that. I am not pushing it. Well trying not to anyway...

    Harder from 1 to 2. Its busy and much more of a zoo. If you think the housework is hard now you'll be surprised by the extra workload in that area. :-). It's nice though and full-filling if it's your goal to have 3.

    I agree, It's refreshing Irl I've had comments like ..you're crazy...glad It's not me..what were you thinking...

    Makes it worse because the gap between 2 and 3 will be 12 months so I cop a bit of flack.

    My DF is adamant that we are not having any more than 2. I am quite heartbroken but after pushing it for a bit I'm going to leave it for another 18mo then try again once DD2 is 2yrs

    I love these positive comments also, children are such a blessing :-) I hate those negative comments and attitudes about a larger family. I generally cope well with my lot but on the days we're not going so well I feel a lot of judgement. We were at the dr, ds2 was sick and crying, and the other 2 we're playing nicely and trying to keep him happy, but I felt like there was a lot of looking at us like - oh 3 kids and mum's not coping. I was feeling awful myself with ms, and I wonder what looks I'll get when ppl can tell I'm preg! But from what I see (and remember) 2 kid fams have bad days too! The more the merrier I say!!!
