Yeah, it's hard. Mostly at night, though. If they slept better I think everything would be a lot easier. I sort of think we adapt to do what we have to do, and it just becomes normal for us. I do know that nobody other than myself (including my DH) can take care of all 3 kids at the same time. I'm just used to doing it.

Now, once they are really mobile I can imagine many things getting harder. One of my guys is trying desperately to crawl and managed to get on his hands and knees today, so we'll see!

I would never say it's not hard, but it's manageable most of the time. I just always think about a woman I know who has a DD a few months younger than my DS1, and triplets a few months older than my twins. It could always be harder. And I'm blessed with healthy kids, and I really do try to take a step back and just appreciate them as much as possible.

I haven't read all the posts, but I wanted to agree:'

It depends on your kids personalities.

I prayed for 9 months that the twins wouldn't be high needs like their big brother!!

Thankfully they weren't. He made having twins feel easy!! At least that first year of it. Since then it has gotten a lot harder with the climbing, early walking, fighting, biting, scheming, etc.

Aw, what I wouldn't give to have them 2 months old again, sigh.

My girls were very high needs at birth, we had 2 ppl awake around the clock for over 3 months to tend them but now at 28 months they are a breeze. Having 2 babies over 1 didn't make life more difficult, no high need(s) baby is easy, but now that we're experts in our home, I'd gladly have another set of twins!! Now I know what I'm doing and I love both my girls with all my heart, along with my older DD of course!!:::
