10 Signs You're a Parent of 3 Kids

Even though I’ve been a mom of three for nearly six months now, I still have to remind myself every once in awhile. Three kids is a lot. My husband and I often joke that we’re now in “zone defense.” We’re outnumbered. We don’t have enough hands. Usually one kid is mad, one is happy, and one is sad. We’re fairly convinced that they take turns to make sure at least someone is upset around the clock. Parents of three or more kids, I salute you. It is no easy gig.

Here are a few signs you’re a parent of three or more…

Spruce Up for Fall with the Adorable Finding Nemo 4-Piece Bedding Set

Decorating the nursery is one of the most exciting times leading up to Baby–from choosing a theme and finding the right accessories, to the smell of new, freshly washed sheets filling the room.

Magical 1st Birthday with Nemo & Friends

Thanks to Disney Baby and Cakes.com for sponsoring this post and for giving me the Finding Nemo DecoSet for free, as well as to Albertson’s for decorating our cake.

We are officially parents of a one year old! I mean…how, when did that happen? I still remember bringing him home from the hospital, the EPIC first night we had at home, and all the tired and sleepless nights that were the first year.

But now we have this handsome, soon to be walking on his own, interested in everything little boy. It’s the most satisfying and wonderful feeling I’ve ever experienced. To celebrate his first year, we threw a “sail”-ebration backyard birthday party complete with an amazing Finding Nemo cake.

The 5 Words I Love to Hear as a Busy Mom

Life as a mother of four is starting to feel like my new normal. I’m no longer confused as how to manage them all. And while for the most part, I have it under control, it’s been exhausting. I’m often asked, “How do you do it?”

Quite honestly, I don’t really think about it, I just do it. To me, raising my daughters has been such a blessing I’m grateful for. That being said, it isn’t easy! I struggle to find “me time” even if it’s only for a few minutes for a cup of tea. Lately, I’ve been hearing five words that have been music to my ears and a relief for my arms.
