Three kids. I never imagined that by age 25 I would have THREE kids. CRAZY!
I'm such a planner. I would always plan things ahead of time. I still do. I planned I would get married at 21 and start having kids at 23. Well things didn't turn out as I had planned and that's good. God's plans for me are WAY better than my own. I got married at 17. Had Joshua when I was 19, Sarah when I was 21 and Levi at 25.
So what's it like having three kids?
I get this question a lot. I'm no expert, I mean I had Levi just seven months ago but I can share what it's like so far. Having three kids is both easy and hard. Let me explain...
It's easier in the sense that I feel I know more now than I did when I had Joshua + Sarah. I don't freak out over every single little thing. I know this can be true after you have #2 but for me it wasn't too much easier. A baby girl is sooo much different than a baby boy. It's also easier because Josh + Sarah both help out with throwing diapers away, bringing things I need (like diapers + wipes + diaper cream) and even feeding Levi with a bottle. Josh + Sarah keep each other company and play well (most of the time..) which REALLy helps out when I need to nurse Levi or put him down for a nap.
It's harder because I'm outnumbered. Going out shopping with two kids was a little hard but still doable. Going out with three is crazy! Afternoons and weekends are a little easier because I have help from my husband but when it's just me with all three time sure flies! It can be chaotic sometimes... I'm done feeding one child and then the others want a snack, then the baby needs a diaper change and the other two come in arguing over a toy and now the baby rolled over and there's poo everywhere (true story). It's harder because I can't give each of my kids the same time and attention that I would like because Levi needs me the most.
Even though having three kids may be hard at times, I wouldn't have it any other way!
