    He's almost 7. I still feel like tearing my hair out most days.
    And like Undercover said, my third is my easiest but it's all just SUCH hard and busy work.

    My 3rd is going to be 4 soon and he got trying around 3 but the elder 2 were easier because they were in full time school. It is always changing, so I get used to a family dynamic and get complacent and then 'bang' one or more of them change and we need to find a new dynamic that works.!

    I'm pregnant with shock baby no. 3 and am petrified I'm not going to be able to cope. We have no family in Australia and though friends are brilliant it's not the same. DD is on the whole good, at 6, DS is a handful at 2 and I'm scared of how the first 2 may suffer when the 3rd arrives. I'm trying to look at it that I'm blessed to be given the chance to have another one but I'm secretly cr**ing myself 😱😂

    Hmm ..

    Well I want to say that if I imagine just having my eldest three (12, 9 and 7) then my life would be a breeze right now, but that's because I'm dealing with five on a daily basis, so my opinion is pretty bias.

    Ohh this is how I feel about #5 He is turning 2 next week and I'm still absolutely exhausted, he doesn't sleep, won't quit breastfeeding, is into EVERYTHING and has just basically ruined me in every way possible ..

    3rd here is by far the easiest baby/toddler out of them.
    Sleeps better, eats better, easy going.

    But having 3 kids is no walk in the park (neither was having 2) but i don't regret it for a second.

    DS is our 3rd & final and the perfect full stop on the end of our branch of the family tree

    3rd was my most difficult...she still is. DD is 2 and is still clingy and such a difficult sleeper.
    Wouldn't change a thing though she was my easiest labour though ! Lol

    My third, my only girl, is by far the most challenging. Not sure if it's due to being number three or because she's an adorable little diva! My 4th is my easiest bub.. Very chilled out little guy.
