I think I have long forgotten the difficulty of the preschool and toddler years! We've been watching 2 toddlers and 2 preschoolers all day -a sure way to regain some perspective! I am so spoiled by three kids who wipe their own bottoms, shower and feed themselves, and help me so much with chores! Sure those toddler years were sweet, but I LOVE these independent years! So, I have just the PERFECT thing that every young mother of small children needs - the thing that will bring sanity and calm to every mother's day...THREE BIG KIDS! They are entertaining, teaching, watching, playing and always on duty to help me out! They are getting some VERY valuable training, too!
