Will it ever slow down?

I'm a mom of 3 adult kids and am now raising 4 grandsons 5,3,2 and 5 months I'm to the point that I don't know wether I'm coming or going. Any advice?

First, you are awesome! You have the experience of raising multiples, now you are doing it again, only with EXPERIENCE. I'm only raising one grandchild at the moment, but I raised two children pretty successfully. I can't imagine multiplying what I am doing now by FOUR! Your eldest is only five. I'd suggest as soon as he is able to understand the concept of helping, you find things he can do that will help make your job easier. My granddaughter is nine now but has been folding clothes since she was around four. Of course, she does it better now and she does a whole lot more to help Grandma. It creates a desire to be of service to others and that is a really wonderful feeling; to be helpful. The best of luck to you and your sweet family!
