Didn't read the other responses so sorry if I'm repeating but I don't like when ANY mother complains about her kids. Don't have them if you don't want the responsibility. And my gosh on the sleeping! My kids stop taking naps by 2 years old. By 1 their down to a 1 hour nap if I'm lucky. Sleeping through the night- my youngest sleeping through the night was right before he turned 2, oldest almost 5. I would've told her to stop complaining about that.LOL

It sounds like she's just going through the "battle of the self" that many mothers go through. Some of us go through it with the 1st, some of us go through it with the 5th. It requires a lot of sacrifice of your focus on your "self" to care for other people. Some people are very self centered (I know I tend to be) and this is a huge struggle. Some people are natural care takers and think more about others, and this transition comes with ease. It's a tough thing. But it definitely sounds like a battle in her spirit.

It doesn't bother me. I think back to when I had 2 kids. It seemed like a lot of work then. We all grew into having a lot of kids, so our ability to handle it all grew as well.
