I chose to rerun this post because I was right, I am really looking back on it and laughing. It’s so great to see that in a year you can overcome so much and troubles that seem so big are completely insignificant in the scheme of things.
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.
