Question

Dear people who have more than 2 kids,
How are you not insane yet? Inquiring minds want to know.

I think we are insane...that's why we have more than 2 kids. :)

Oh, I totally agree! It will be a long while before Bergeson #3 comes along. It's just too much! No way to do a good job as a parent, exercise, keep house clean, dinner on table, have at least a BIT of fun once in awhile...I don't get how we're expected to do this either!!!!!

The answer is, that they get older. There is still plenty to do when they are older, but it is different. You remind them to do homework or clean their room (doesn't mean that they do it), but you don't take them to the bathroom or have to worry about them drinking Drano. They feed themselves and play at friends' houses.
Oh, and the best part, is that they often help with little ones. It keeps the insanity at bay.

I agree w/ Maleen. Oldest kid can do more for themselves, adn that helps you think about more than 2. give kid #1 and #2 time to grow up. it will change, and hopefully get better. #1 & #2 eventually become friends and bond and entertain themselves.
who had the new truck in your driveway today? someone visiting? just making sure the Petersons didn't make a large purchase!!

Who says we aren't insane? I am beginning to reach a state of sanity...before it actually happens, we are going to hopefully jump back on the crazy train. Only this time it won't be with newborns. Yeah...no newborns and sleepless nights...Hopefully.
