DS2 is now 6 months, DS1 is 3 and a half, I feel I'm just coming up for air after a tiring but satisfying time, we've been getting on well. But it is hectic, and wondered how other MNetters enjoy life as a bigger family, any tips for making the chores easier and the time for fun larger? my relationship with DH has taken a bit of a hit, we need to make some time for us, as well as getting as much relaxed/fun time together as a family..

Less housework

On-line food shopping

A couple of no-TV nights a week

Lots of time out in open spaces

Time with friends who have similar aged kids

Lots of wine!

i'll be watching this for tips...DS2 due in 5wks, and DS is going to be 16mths.

I'm going to keep DS at childminders 2 short days a week, so i get a chance (hopefully) to do some chores or grab a nap. In theory anyway!

and there WILL be lots of wine aswell grin
