Having two boys as I said was interesting, but having three… it’s almost as if your world gets thrown upside down. I thought I had this boy mom thing down, then Liam came along and well, let’s say sometimes I feel like I am back to square one.
Here is how things have changed for us:
We went from man to man coverage, to zone defense. We are outnumbered, always. It’s an adjustment and a learning curve. Doing things like bath time, meal time, or even getting everyone in the car is quite the workout. You learn to multitask and juggle different situations like nobody’s business.
Teamwork makes the dream work or something like that. Jordan and I have learned that we need each other. BUT this biggest thing is I think we now expect more out of Jadyn and Colin. Things that I probably wouldn’t have asked Jadyn or Colin to do before, I now ask them to do. I have them help a lot more with chores around the house (like clean up toys, make their bed, take the trash out). We are all about teamwork around the house. Everyone helps clean up after dinner and to makes sure the house stays tidy.
I have become a lot more resourceful. Case in point- I now order my groceries and have it delivered (#notsorry). I also use a meal service to deliver dinner for the week. I probably wouldn’t be doing this with two kids. But Lord knows I am not setting foot inside a grocery store with three kids.
I would rather spend time doing things I know that only I can do, like being there for my kids and playing with them.
Lastly, I’ve learned to shop smarter. 75% of the time I shop online, or I’m shopping sales. Because hello, I have three kids to dress, and it ain’t cheap.
I love shopping at Carter’s sold at JCPenney. Carter’s is the leading brand of children’s clothing in the United States! I have bought Carter’s for all three boys and still do for Jadyn and Colin! Carter’s inside JCPenney is the one-stop shopping destination (making it easy for us mama’s) while offering a variety of stylish and affordable fashion for your babies. Shopping at JCPenney has always saved me time and money.
JCPenney also offers incredible style and value for all, making it easy for families to discover items like these adorable rompers from Carter’s for less time, money and effort. This May Carter’s will be going on sale for up to 50% off (5/6/18 – 5/28/18). Make sure to visit online or stop by in store to shop the sale!
