It's busy three children take it out of you. I glad that Asti is at school as two is a bit more easy to deal with, I sometimes look at my friends who have just one child and think oh I remember that luxury. The time where the kids didn't fight for your attention, where I didn't have three children wanting things ALL THE TIME.
I do love it though. Each three of my children are so different, so full of fun. It's a blessing it really is. Don't want to make you vom but it can be nice. It's those times I need to focus on when the days come where I feel overwhelmed. That does happen too. Having to get all the kids out the house for nursery and school is done in military position. I come home knackered and it's still early. Dinner time comes and there's nothing but fighting from the kids, arguing over who gets to watch the TV, arguing over nothing. I wait for bedtime then it comes and I can not wait till there up. Me and my husaband spend the evening sharing stories and pictures. Then the morning comes and Ami wakes everyone up and 6 and we wait for bed time again.
There is so much bickering too much, many hits made and a lot of shouting. Nobody invites us round for lunch or dinner were to large and noisy. Our stuff gets lost everywhere we go and we never go to coffee shops with all three. Well except drive through Costa where they can have a babycino in the car.
Washing is a big thing i have mounds on a weekly basis, I'm forever loading and folding. My least favours job of putting it away too. Every wash the machine Sachs a few socks as have a basket full of odd socks!
Three children is busy busy busy, it's non stop and each day brings new challenges, but I wouldn't change it for the world. Those times when they behave and everything is going a bit too much step ford wives like then I realise it's great. Watching the kids play nicely is great, drinking a hot tea is the best. Life is good.
I wrote a post very similar to this a couple of , years ago. 3 children is hard work. Mine are now 7, 5 and 3 and it is slowly getting a bit easier xReplyDelete
Haha - yes yes yes to how long it takes to get out of the house. I have four aged 8, 7, 23 months and 8 months and I start planning my exit from the house and hour ahead lol #sharethejoyReplyDelete
Oh dear, I have 2 children and we're talking about a third at some point - I'm scared now! Haha, it already takes a lot of work to get the two of them out of the house on time! I think we'll still go for it though, I don't feel like our family is quite complete yet! xReplyDelete
I can't imagine how you do it. I am one of 3 and i always ask my mum (who was a single parent) how she did it, as I think 1 is hard..I obviously have no idea ;-) xx #sharewithmeReplyDelete
We stopped at 2 for lots of reasons, mostly health related, but I'm not sure I could have managed another one anyway! There's plenty of loud here as it is :) Lovely post, full of the fun you clearly have together - thank you for linking this up at #sharethejoyReplyDelete
You are so amazing. I keep thinking could I handle a third and not sure if that's ever in the cards for us. You make it sound so amazing though> I have always wanted three. Thank you so much for linking up to Share With Me #sharewithmeReplyDelete
