Spring is in the air.

It’s now April and the weather is starting to warm up (finally) and immediately I am consumed with thoughts about being outside. I am normally a very active, outdoorsy type of person, so being trapped inside with three kids is not easy for me.

The question remains, how do I get out and about with three kids? Driving is out since I can’t fit three car seats in the car, so it’s all about walking. I have to figure out a way of pushing a double stroller and walking two dogs and watching Sawyer.  If everyone is happy I think I can manage it, but what happens if the girls are fussy, or Sawyer starts misbehaving? I doubt the girls will last long in the stroller since they are breastfed and eat all the time, but I don’t want to deprive Sawyer of his summer. Last year our favorite times were hanging out and the playground. Now, even if we can somehow get there (we used to drive) I will be so busy juggling the girls I won’t be able to play with him 😦

I am sure, in time, I will look back on all this and laugh thinking how easy those things are, but for the time being I am still adjusting to being a mother of three. I try not to wish the time away because it only happens once, but I want so much for them to be older so the real fun can begin. In any case, I am so thankful every day of all that I have, I am so lucky.
