I have four, and I love that number. I don't find that they are that hard to manage.
I guess my #1 tip is to get a good calendar. I know a lot of people have gone electronic, but I still have a big huge desk calendar. I write everything down...school projects for the kids, sports games, church events, doctor's appts, when library books are due. If it isn't written down there isn't a chance I'll remember.
I rarely go anywhere alone. When my husband or I have to run errands I always grab a kid or two. I think they all get plenty of time...one-on-one, and as a family. We certainly spend more time as a family, and I think that is more important.
