One thing that really bugs me is the response I get when I tell someone I have three kids, now normally people see me with the two boys – both are in diapers and they will be 3 and 1 in August – yes they are exactly 2 years and 6 days apart. I also have a daughter from a previous relationship who will be 7. Yet, no one gets why in the world we would have three children. I would quite honestly have MORE if I could, and if it was reasonable for our family, but just the three are rather costly and take up a lot of time. The children do not take up time in a negative way, but I could not imagine trying to share my attention with another one, I can already see the competition for “mommy time”. My oldest, who was raised by me being overal single for the first three years of her life, found it hard to cope with a new brother and then two years later we had another BOY. She was so devastated, she wanted a baby girl sister, but I keep telling her that it’s great to be the ONLY GIRL because now she gets Mommy and girl time ALONE without the boys! If she had a sister she may have to share that time
Well today I have a video to share with you about all the things I get frustrated with, which includes the sentence, “YOU HAVE THREE KIDS??!!” .. I hope you enjoy watching it and leave a comment with your feedback, or share your story too!
