I agree. I am also pregnant with my third and my two boys are 3 and 16 months. My main concern right now is less my transitions from two to three amd more my 3 year old's behavior. He has only been three for a month and a half and it only seems to get worse. He doesn't listen at all. If anyone has some advice for this age I am all ears.
Just hang in there! My oldest went through the "terrible 3's" also. But my 2nd one is definitley a stereotype and doing the terrible 2's!
I am heading for #5. My first 2 were boys, almost 2 years apart. My daughter came a little more then 2 years later and that 3rd child was so hard to adjust to. I mean theres always a period of finding a new groove that works when your family gets bigger but it really took a lot to get it together and working again for me. Of course once baby # 4 came, another boy. I was so busy still chasing my other 3 I had no time to over spoil or start bad habbits so he is probably the easiest I had so far. He is spoiled now at 1 but still very easy. Totally a worth it adventure though. GOOD LUCK!!
I just found out I'm pregnant with our 3rd and we are excited. My first two are boys; they are almost 4 and 17 months. They get along great and love to wrestle. It sounds like the transition from 2 to 3 isn't too bad, so I'm not too worried.
I am actually excited to find that 2 to 3 is eaiser then 1 to 2. I am not sure however if I will have 3 but this definatly seems like a possibility.
I definitely think it was much easier to go from 2 kids to 3, then it was to go from 1 to 2. By the time you have 3, you have aleady figured out how to multitask and juggle! I was pretty scared about going on #3 as well, but I found it relatively easy. I am a stay at home mom and I have a 3 year old boy, an 18 month old boy, and a 4 month old girl. The biggest challenges have been dealing with "terrible 3s" while taking care of a newborn... And I just went to the grocery store with the 3 of them ALONE for the first time. With 3 kids in a cart, where do you put your food? I opted for one of those carts with the car attatched to it... which I think are totally disgusting so I sanitized my kids when I got home! But it was the only thing I could do to keep them occupied, so I had to do what I had to do!! My sister-in-law now has 2 small ones, and she tells me all the the time that she breaks out into a sweat when she going out alone with them. All I can do is think to myself... "Ahhhh, those were the days!"
I've been wondering the same thing! I have a 10 year old and 6 month old and another on the way! I think my son is grown enough that this third baby is going to feel like the 1 - 2 transition rather than the 2 - 3! I'm in for trouble
My second, a boy, will be 4 when my 3rd is born, not far off 5. My oldest, a girl, will be 6 not far off 7, so I think this is a good age gap, and hopefully it will mean I can give quality time to all of them.
i don't if it would be hard or not .
i had 4 preemies 5 1/2 yr. boy, 5 yr. girl, 4yr. boy. 1yr. girl and pregnant with lucky # 5. i think more th merry . they all have there alone life and do there alone thing but still love playing with there siblings some times i feel like i carried quads because it looks sometimes i have my own foot ball team or day care center and when i tell people there mine they say wow how old are you i am know 28 and started at 21 years old . there birth ranges 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006 and know 2009 but that is if we don't go in to preterm labor before christmas 2008
Going from 1 to 2 was overwhelming for me because I felt that I could not love them both equally...boy was I wrong!!! Once I got used to two, everything seemed to flow. I am pregnant with our third and don't think that the transition will be that difficult. By the time the baby is born, the girls will be 7 and 5, they are great with babies and I believe that they will be a HUGE help!!
