Anyone out there who has two children close in age knows adding the second one doesn't just double the work. It's more like quadruple. So how much more work is it by adding a third one? Times eight?
I just got done feeding all three kids and them cleaned up. Now its bathtime. Baths exhaust me. No wonder I don't give them baths every night like good mothers do. We're an every other night type family. Sometimes they even go three days. Of course if they are visibly dirty, a bath is given, but if they look and smell clean, a day or two may go by in between baths.
Another thing that is tough is changing sheets. It takes a long time and it requires one or two loads, two of we are washing blankets.
The girls don't have school this Friday so their spelling tests are tomorrow. I've administered 4-6 spelling tests today to .ake sure they know their words. And they still have homework to do. I can't imagine what its going to be like when all three kids are in junior high and high school. Getting homework done for a kindergartener and a first grader are hard enough tasks. How am I going to survive the teenage years?
Ah. I'll take it one day at a time for now. It's all I can do.
