Hi.Thanx for the visit. Nice to meet someone else who _likes_ her children (more difficult than loving them)
Word of wisdom 1:
Encourage help with housework while they're still toddlers. A ten year old who was supervised washing up at and pushing the vacuum cleaner at four is much more likely to do it now than one who wasn't. In any case housework is nowhere near as important as playing with young kids. Keep the loo and the food -preparation surfaces up to your mother-in-law's standards..The rest of it's relative.

Your youngest may be a twin of my baby son, Andrew. He is 5 months old on Dec 5th. Is it just me, or does time seem to accelerate after kiddies are born?

We have been very fortunate with him. He is a great sleeper and he only cries when he is hungry or tired. I can't believe how big he is already! 5 months old and very "pudgy".

Also I have just found out that he looks almost exactly like his mum did at the same age, so even better luck. smiley - smiley
