does anyone else ever feel they have been running round after a toddler for ever??? I have 6 DC, oldest is 11 1/2 and yougest is 18 months.The 18 month old is (obvioulsy!) gorgeous... but also totally non-stop and exhausting! All my DC are about 2 years apart (give or take a few months) and so I have had a baby or toddler in tow for the last 11 years!! DS2 (DC6) is our last, and whilst there is a tinge of sadness that comes with accepting that,I must admit to actually secretly looking forward to a day when all my children can talk and walk properly and dont need buggies and stairgates and nappies and high chairs and no longer rip books or draw on walls every second you turn your back (or maybe that isjust my toddlers LOLwink)
Anyone else ever fell like this?

every day, for a minute or two, I feel like this. And then I feel guilty...but yes, will be glad when the drawing on the walls and the stairgates phase is over!

I am like this now. My eldest is just 11 and the youngest 2.5. I am fed up with the whole toddler thing now!!

I am currently expecting #5...

Our eldest is 12.

I have to say I am dreading the toddler stage which I counsider to be from 12 months to 4 years or at least it is in our family.

I had baby/toddler stage for 18y. 9 children in 16y. Do I miss it? Sometimes but I was ready to see the back of the buggy etc in the end. Much easier getting around without it

juule 9 dc.. you are amazing! well done you!

You know sometimes I look at my super cute youngest son with his floppy curls and blue ayes and unintelligable rambling babble and little giggles and feel so sad trhat he will be the last....
Then other times I am trying to do some craft project with the older ones and he is climbing all over the table trying to get to the paint/glue/glitter/whatever and I am so ready to be done with toddlers LOL grin
