"What's it Like? Wednesday" 3 Kids?!

Hello readers!  I am happy to announce, I have decided to start up a new middle of the week chat.  These chats will be called "What's It Like? Wednesday".  Why, the name?  Well, it's easy. Although I have experienced quite a few things in my life (kids, marriage, jobs, college, etc.), there is so much I have yet to or will never experience (i.e. having a sibling), so in my attempt to broaden my knowledge and be able to better raise my family, I turn to you, my readers, for the honest real-life confessions of your experiences of such things.  I truly hope you enjoy these chats and most of all I look forward to your input.

So, for my first "What's It Like? Wednesday", I am asking:

"What's it like to have 3 kids?" 

As you know we are expecting our third (a little girl) in November, so I am nervous, excited and so much more all at the same.  But, I don't even know what it's going to be like.  We will be transitioning from a man-on-man to a zone defense and even though defense was my specialty in high-school basketball, I'm not sure this is quite the same!

This where I ask you to please tell me the good, the bad and the just plain unexpected of having 3 kids! I look forward to learning so much from you all!

  1. It's busy! I never had the experience of 2 kids though. I got pregnant with twins (huge surprise, no fertility treatments) and went straight from 1 to 3.

    The worst part of having 3 kids is when they're all fighting or tantruming and I'm alone and totally outnumbered. My youngest are two and a half years old and I don't take all 3 to the park anymore after one of my sons bolted for the road once while I was carrying his siblings. I did a miraculous mommy move of slide and grab that ruined my pants and skinned my knee, but saved him from dashing into traffic while managing not to hurt my other kids in the rush to put them down. So there's that: keeping tabs on 3 once they're all mobile and feeling independent.

    The best part is that there is ALWAYS somebody there for them to interact with. Plus, of course, all the extra love and cuddles that come with having more kids. ;)

  2. 3 kiddos? Chaos topped with unending Joy! I could of never imagined it being so hard, but I also never could of imagined all of the blessings that are found in a houseful of little one's.

    The hardest moments are when I am alone with them and they all melt down at once. I don't know how they do it, but its like they plot against me! "Wanna see mom go crazy? Ready, set, SCREAM & CRY; for no reason at all!!" I tend to feel like super woman when I go out with them alone and come back with no melt downs and actually all of my errands are complete.

    The greatest part is listening to them play together. Watching them hug on each other, and having little arms wrapped around me & hands in mine. It's a complete blessing that the Lord has chosen me & my husband to raise these blessings.

  3. Giving you tons of credit. I have one and I'm exhausted
