We are gluttons for punishment! That and mother nature plays tricks on us. Everything that once annoyed us suddenly becomes 'cute' memories when they get older, and we don't remember the truth until it is too late and the new one is on the way!

Wait until their teen years---then strap yourselves in tightly on the roller coaster and put the helmet on----you're in for the ride of your lives---NO SLEEP until they go off to college or are out of the house.........

Sorry, that part is mandatory. But if it helps any, Buck and I survived 4 boys and 1 girl. Our scars are barely noticeable.

Katie E, What do you mean? You get sleep now that your kids are out of the house?!? Mine still call when the babies get sick in the middle of the night and I go to them!! I must be doing something wrong!

Katie is absolutely right - no way around it but most of us survive. Be sure and keep detailed notes, though. They will be useful when your kids have teenagers!

It helps to have a little geography in between, Dawn. Our two children with families of their own live in Atlanta, GA. They've also been parents for a long while. One son's been married for 15 years, so they have the "what the heck do I do, mom" part figured out when it comes to their children. I'm just waiting for one of them to have a "teen." Now, THAT will be interesting.
