Adapted from a recent online discussion.
Question: As someone who's been there, done that, when do you think that being a parent gets a little easier? We have a wonderful 15-month-old and he is the light of our lives, but those lives are harried (along with some physical challenges - my husband is an amputee).
We would in theory like to have another baby, but could just use some wisdom. Any advice?
Answer: I never do this, but I'm going to: Five. That's the age when your ball of need stops being a toddler and starts being a kid - someone who can actually help out a little bit and just fry your brain less.
