Mummy gigue: Hello! Good evening everyone!

Hi all, just stumbled upon kiasuparent.com, and learnt so much from this informative and easy-to-navigate website! Wished that I know this earlier!

I'm a SAHM with 3 kids - 5, 2 and 1/2. Glad to join the community! :)

Hi Mincy, thanks for your welcome! Ya, you're right - 3 can be trying at times! #1 goes to Childcare full day (I was working till recently), #2 attends a montessori class 3 times a week for 2 hrs. What about you?

My wife has exactly 2 kids and I suspect she's Wonderwoman. But in spite of how hard I look, I just couldn't find her outfit in the closet.

Hahaha!! Thanks for the welcome and the joke, ChiefKiasu!

Hi Mincy, totally understand - to work full time and look after kid/s (another full-time job!!) is like you said, can pen san one. I pen already, so I decided to stay at home. But once in a while I wish I'm back at work, cos it's easier than staying at home managing an infant, a toddler and a preschooler!! Domestic mayhem.

Hi,
I'm a SAHM with 2 kids and whenever I commented about being busy with them, my mum will laugh at me and said that she had twice the workload back then - 4 kids. She wondered how she coped back then, but told me that in a blink of an eye, the kids grew up....

welcome to KSP 8)

Hello Jedamum! :)

Ya, I always wonder how women last time cope with many children! Plus no domestic help. They are really superwomen.

I've read some of your sharing! Tks and will certainly try them out! How old are your children?

I think one of their secret formula of juggling so many kids is that they are less kiasu than us... :wink:

My boys are P1 and 27mths old. :D
