It's sorta true though haha having one child is like heaven. My friends who have just one will complain about how tough parenting is and I just want to shake them. Lol they look at me like I'm crazy and when my kids are fighting those same friends have that smug look on their face... Blah. They don't even know. my angels would eat them alive. My mom has 4 kids and keeps telling me kid #3 was the easiest and any more after that is like a big party, the more the merrier. Maybe it's because with the 3rd you aren't as uptight as you were with the first. I also write this with half humor but behind every joke there's a little truth. I'm looking forward to that "easier" transition mama promised me. Lol

Honestly for me going from 0 to 1 was the hardest for me! I had all these high expectations of being a mommy and I also had the baby blues because my daughter was very colicy and breastfeeding didn't work out. I feel like I missed out on the first 3 months of my daughter's life because I was soo sad all the time. When I got pregnant with my son unexpectantly it was my chance to do things differently. I enjoyed every minute of being a mommy, he wasn't colicy, and breastfeeding worked out soo well that I breastfeed him for 3 years!!! Everyone told me how hard it would be to have 2 kids under 2 but I thought it wasn't too hard at all because I was already in baby mode, he he! My daughter was an awesome big sister and she loved her brother the minute I brough him home and they are best buddies today. Seriously having kids close together is awesome!
KASHWORTH you will do great with 2 kids 15 months aprt!
I would actually love to give my new baby to be a sibling close in age if my husband goes for it , he he!
For me 1 to 2 was easy. I'm a little worried about 2-3....good thing is my daughter started school 5 days a week and my son will be starting preschool 2 days a week so I will have time with JUST baby and with JUST two
The 15 months apart spacing was awesome because I was already in that baby mode and already tired! HA! Going from 2-3 wasn't bad because my older 2 were 5 and 4 and were pretty independent and could get in and buckle themselves, etc. That was awesome. Now #3 was 2.5 when #4 was born and that to me was more difficult than the 15 months (even though it wasn't too bad) only because he was not quite big enough to do the things he THOUGHT he could do. This baby and #4 will be around 23 months apart. We'll see how that goes. But really #1 was the hardest adjustment, no sleeping, BAAAAD PPD, bad reflux, moving, etc. It was just haaaaard.
