easiest--built in socialization and more independant kids
hardest-constant fighting over toys, lots in diapers at the same time, lots of kids to load into carseats at once

The hardest thing for me is all the nappies in the mornings, the fighting over the same toys as they have the same interests!

The easiest is they *can* be great friends which means they can entertain each other while i do other stuff

The hardest part is the lack of sleep to me right now. I feel like I haven't really slept in over 2 years, which i haven't lol.

The easiest part is that they are both into the same things, we go to playgroups, the park, etc... everywhere we go is for both of them, same for toys and clothes, everything is shared or reused.

Hardest: I never can get anything done around the house. It is ALWAYS messy.

Easiest: They both like the same stuff. Like they are both too little to want to go to water parks, movies, and big kid stuff. They both are happy to just go to the park or for a walk.

Hardest: My house is forever a disaster area. They make a mess in the path that I clean if you get my drift an with me working full time at home at the same time it is that much harder

Easiest: They can amuse each other and are starting to play more together as Sophia gets older and hopefully that will only increase, especially before this baby comes.
