Life with a 3 year old and a 5 year old

I had written about "Life with a Newborn and Toddler" before in my Mothering blog. In fact, that post is very popular. Lots of people search for "Life with a Newborn and Toddler" and land on that page.

So now that the hard part is over, how's life with a 3 year old and a 5 year old? Lots of fun I must say. Everything is easier now. Bathing, Feeding, Sleeping and Going Out. But of course there are new challenges now.

They are both more mischievous and adventurous now so I can't leave them alone for long. They may unknowingly get into dangerous situations. I will talk about their first big mischief in another post.

The other thing is they fight all the time. Fight, Snatch, Push, Poke, Kick, Scratch etc each other. My voice is hoarse from shouting at them to stop it! I know all the parenting books tell you to talk to them nicely, reason with them, listen to them and don't scold or raise your hand at the kids when you are angry. Ha! When the scene is set and they are at it again, all the Parenting books and advise go out the window. Lol!


  1. My boys are 2 and 4. Hmmm...from your post..... looks like there will still be more fight, snatch, push poke or worse... a year from now in my household given that mine are boys while you have a girl and a boy.

  2. Hahaha. The fight continues... and with it, our white hair. hahaha.

  3. aiyo..mine only 2+ already start kick, punch, push, scratch..*sigh*
    hahahaha ( i laugh at the sentences u wrote)When they fight talk to them nicely, reason with them, hehehe, it's always easy to said hard to do. Me like u too, when they start fight, i will start shouting and spanking lo! I still learn how to be a good mom with less shouting and less spanking.

  4. annie,
    My hubby always say to me. Don't scold or hit in anger but do it to discipline. I'm trying very hard!

  5. I have the same destiny with WMD, 2 & 4 and both boys lol. I personally luv newborn & toddler stage, at least I can have some peace..

  6. rachel,
