Hey parents of 3 (or more), I need some tips. How does going from 2-3 kids seem like it triples the laundry, dirt on the hardwood, toothpaste in the sink, and urine on the back of the toilet? Brian and I are outnumbered. We can not just split anymore, taking each child to their sport, school function, or playdate; sacrifices will be made and commitments may not be 100%. We already have to be intentional, on a rotating basis, for fairness. I have to say, we have an amazing village though: parents, siblings, and friends have already been our heroes, as well as our kids biggest supporters!
Going from 2-3 kiddos has also brought our awareness to and seems to triple the little things: awareness of kindness, support, and patience. It has tripled the sensitivity of our worrier
and tripled the leadership of our free-spirited child.
We are in the midst of state testing for *C$, travel for dad, and all things play-date, sports, and friends for our busy *minion. We are thankful for coaches and teachers. It truly does take a village. I am reminded that we are all busy, do something for someone even if you don’t have time for it, accept help from someone, and “bother people. brave it.” ~@jennieallen- Instagram

*Little man is taking it all in. He is adjusting, loving, and learning. He is so happy and he puts life into perspective.
