Its only early on a Saturday morning and I am already ready for bed!! Both ds's woke up and started hurtling about like Tasmanian Devils. I love the fact they are so energetic - just would be great when they are just a little calmer!

about 9 from experience.

When they get married.

Year 3
that's when they (and girls too) grumble & squirm further down under the duvet when it's time to get up. It's also the time when they can read well enough for a book to be an appealing alternative to a crash-about

Not too long to wait I suppose smile

Don't wish it away...it goes far too quickly as it is.

Hmmm. DS2 is 12 tomorrow and he can still be a whirling dervish.

BetteNoire Sat 18-Oct-08 11:23:30

Still waiting. grin

I really don't want to wish theri little lives away - they are so much fun at this age BUT it would be great to have to odd lie in without coming downsatirs to total destruction AND on top of their energy is that they eat like mad. They eat more than me most of the time still whipper snappers though grin

My Ds is a huge eater too and as skinny as a French bean. He's pretty good though as I have the house alarm on so he can't get into the lounge. He gets his breakfast and usually just plays games or watches videos in his bedroom until I'm ready. He does though sometimes bug me silly to get into the lounge hmm.

Aged 9 for both of mine.
Boys are much easier than girls in my totally biased opinion. What you see is what you get and when they are little it's all physically hard work.
But around 8 or 9 they calm down a bit, just about the age that girls start to become much more tricky and stroppy.
Just my observation based on converations with mums of boys v mums of girls, always exceptions of course.

DS1 hasn't calmed down yet and he was 10 in August.
DS2, just gone into Y3, is a physically lazy child and has always been much calmer; DH found him this morning at 5.30 reading about hedgehogs in his DK Animal Encyclopaedia.
