    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.

    No nappies, no nappy bag, no high chair and no pram. Woohoo!!

    Having said that i've got a two and one year old and i'm just trying to make it out of the terrible twos!! Arghh!

    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.
