Not me, but it's nice to know that there are other mamas out there who made it through the first few years. It gives me hope.

:LOL I remember a time when I needed that kind of hope! Hang in there- it really does get easier. There are still challenges of course, but it's not so demanding as when they are little.

Lot's of 5 year olds! My dd is 5 too.

I have 6 yo boys! I've posted here in the past, but it's been literally years, at least 2. I do post in diapering though for my new baby.

My twins are only four, but they have an eight year old brother. We are doing the school thing, though I know the issues are different with twins.

My twins are 11. Every year it's more fun and more challenging, but I guess it's that way with any kids, right?

Homeschooling mom to four kids, ages 18, 18, 10, and 6.

Don't cry Charmarty!! Mine have gotten easier as they've gotten older... though I am guessing that may change with teen years rapidly approaching!

The biggest challenge for us these past few years has been helping our less dominant twin stop trying to keep up with his brother & recognize his own strengths & talents. He's really finally blossomed the past 18 mos. At this age though, all the daily demands on me are definitely less as they've become more able to contribute to the household & become more self sufficient.

Thanks amnesiac!
Yes the teen years....I shudder...........

I hope your dc finds himself. I can't even imagine how diffucult that must be on twins. I am starting to see it in my own girls now. The struggle to be herself. Life long journey I am sure.

My twin boys are 8.

I am interested in discussing older issues. I started a thread in August about school and being in the same room, but I didn't get many responses. Will watch this one for topics!

Yup, I picked it back when the twins were tiny. It's good to be remembered.
