Actually that blog title is a complete lie. Because there are things I would change. Like how I am so tired right now. How sometimes my kids listen to me and most of the times they don’t. How I found myself singing, “Doc McStuffins… Doc Mcstuffins… the doc is in” to myself while driving. How I bit Collin’s head off the other day for seriously no good reason-except I’d used up all of my patience. How a shower is a rare gift from heaven. But I wouldn’t change the fact that I have these crazy cats. Seriously, by the end of the day we are exhausted because we filled our day with an abundance of laughs, dress-up, dishes, donuts, endless cuddles, endless laundry… and the occasional bar fight followed by the overly-dramatic Oscar-worthy tears & apologies.
Some recent Instagrams of our everyday.
Which reminds me, were chatting on Insta the other day because of a recent study that stated: Mothers of three children stress more than moms of one or two, while mothers of four or more children actually report lower stress levels, according to an exclusive TODAYMoms.com survey of more than 7,000 U.S. mothers.
This was interesting because, for me, four kids far exceeds my stress when there were three. I think it might be the age of my kids. A two and a half year old and a newborn can be tricky. What about you?
How have you found the transition from 1 to 2, or 2 to 3 kids?
Playing dress-up is serious business!
Collin whisks the kids away so I can work.
