    I find school age heaps easier. My second is 2 (eldest is 6) and she's a challenge when I have to clean or cook dinner, constantly getting into things and creating mess as fast as I can clean it.

    DP's kids are 6, 10 & 12 and still I find my 2 year old to be more work than the other 4 kids combined when DP and I have all our kids.

    I dont think it gets easier. I think each age group presents its own challenges and I just think you get better at dealing with them. I have friends who want to swap with my 6 yo for their teenager and I think brilliant! How easy! Until they fill me in on worry and stress and attitudes of their teenagers!

    OP is it since you've had your third child? (ie. did it become 'easier' sooner after having your first and second?)

    I felt that it got easier and I got to a point of feeling in control and organised when I only had 2 children, but it all changed when DD3 came along.

    Guess that wasn't helpful. :/

    I have a 5yo and a 6 month old. I reckon it gets easier when they're around 3.5-4yo. I find the baby and toddler years the most difficult (so far!).

    Clevercloggs I feel exactly the same way. I just can't stay on top of everything! The basics are starting to get hard and I must admit some days I can't find the energy to sweep the floor again/do dishes again etc etc do the house just stays a mess. I don't have a solution, just thought I'd sympathise. I have 3 boys 5 3 and 1.

    hi, as the registered grandma on bubhub I think you lassies are all fooling yourselves if you even think it gets easier. I went from one child to three, then to four under 6 years. Been through baby stages, school age, high school, young adults, and now im with the grandbabies. I got a housekeeper through the teenage years because there were just not enough hours in the week and various sports at the weekends. Sometimes, I get up to date, but then the grandbabies come over and it is all waiting for me again. Change your focus, housework will always wait, these small people that you have now, they need you more than anything else. less more . Marie
