3 Kids 3 and Under

So, before having 3 kids three and under (well Maddox is almost 4) I wondered about all kinds of things...heck before having even 2 kids I wondered about things. Things that seem so silly now...

Things like:

How to get the 1 child in his car seat from the car to the shopping cart?

Where to park at the store in relation to the shopping cart rack?

Did I put Maddox in the car before or after I put up the shopping cart? Heck now I have 3 kids that require putting in the car.

The best place in the car for Maddox's carseat. Now I have THREE carseats.

How did I cook supper with 1 or 2 kids?

What did I do when he cried while I was on the phone? Now, I sometimes have 3 kids crying.
True story...one day shortly after having Hudson I was on the phone and the lady asked if I had a daycare. "Umm, no lady that would be my OWN children"

How did I feed Maddox & eat myself? 

How did I work 12 hour shifts & then come home and give Maddox a bath? Let's talk about 3 baths. 

Oh yes, now I realize how "silly" these things were to worry about. So, now what do I do with 3 kids

And let's talk about the comments from strangers.

"Wow, you're a brave woman"

"Wow, you have your hands full"

"You couldn't have them any closer together, could you?"

"And I thought I was busy when I had twins"

"Wow, are they all yours?"

"You sure are a glutten for punishment"

"Are you done now?"

Yeah, umm seriously why do people say these things!?! I don't think it's really any of their business. Truth is I am busy but I would be busy with 1 or even 2 kids. We wanted 3 kids and that is what we have!

I saw a bag with the perfect saying on it for comments like that: "if you think my hands are full, you should see my heart." Not sure why people find it necessary to throw negative comments at moms with young kids but they sure do!! You are doing a great job and your kiddos are precious!

Although my 3 won't be anywhere near as close in age as your 3, come September I'll have a 7.5 year old, a 3.5 year old and a newborn...I'm a tad nervous but VERY excited!!!!! :) Even with the age difference, I still get comments about having THREE (as if it's 20! ;) I love that picture of the 4 of you (and your necklace! SO cute! :))
