I often hear people telling me (in general or when offering advice)...on here, other forums, in real life, etc.... That the 'hardest' years were XXX (fill in blank)...Some say 'I found the first few months the <i>hardest</i>'....or 'I found the toddler years the <i>hardest</i>'..... And I have concluded that what we all will find the <i>hardest</i> will depend on our weakness as human beings!<br>
For example, some of us just can not handle lack of sleep and need more sleep than others...so perhaps those that have newborns who wake frequently will find this the <i>hardest</i>. Does that make sense? hehe<br><br>
A friend once told me though (a very wise quote from herself lol)....<br><br><i>"It never gets any harder, only the challenges change"</i><br><br>
So far I am finding that to be true!<br>
It seems once we overcome one challnge....another one pops up to keep me on my toes....Otherwise all this parenting lark would probably get boring! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I think it is hard when I don't know what to expect or when it is going to end. I can handle the baby, I've btdt and don't expect to get all the sleep I want and I expect to get peed on. Parenting hormones on the other hand... and mine aren't even really teens yet.
