    I've got 2 in school (well he will start Tuesday) and one at home.

    My youngest us 3 and gets left out sometimes as she's just too young, or just a normal unreasonable toddler.

    It is easier with older kids but there are still days where I count down to bedtime or feel like a shi77y mum when I reflect on the day and how I've reacted to them.

    Don't get me wrong...there are days where I feel like a shyte mum, there are days where I AM a shyte mum. But they are days, and it's usually when I have a lot on my plate, and I make a deal with myself to make it up to them. No one is perfect...but I just figure if you get to the end of the day and can acknowledge you need to do better the next day, then you're doing okay.

    I've learnt this as a mum....although it took a while.

    Its OK to have crap days, make mistakes, have regrets. Because I know I love my girls and I'm doing my best.

    I enjoy it more as they get older. Once they hit 7+ I feel like I cope better. I sometimes find my 4yo DD is more work than my DS and stepsons all put together (our boys are 8 - 15 years old). Toddlers and 4-6 year olds are beautiful little people, but by jingos they can be hard work too!! I think it's the tanties and naughtiness that get me, and the older kids just don't seem to be quite so intense, and they respond quicker to being told off.

    See those last times things they mention don't bother me. For example I can't wait for the last time DD comes to wake me up at midnight! I'm glad my kids don't fall asleep on me, I can't wait until I no longer have to carry them.

    My thing is I don't enjoy being needed. I don't like being relied upon, so the less my kids need me or totally rely on me, the happier I know I'll be.

    Me too! It's all happening so fast and feels like too many "lasts" lately.

    That's interesting and very honest. I think most people who have kids at least on an intellectual level enjoy being needed by their kids.

    I've this last year taken a lot more time for myself and the kids rely a lot more on DH. I'm surprised how comfortable I am about this. I have a lot of friends who like being the most needed person in their relationship.
