Casual Outfit x My fears of having 3 kids

Happy Monday and Happy Martin Luther King Day!

I would assume lots of people are home today. I hope you’re enjoying your time off if you are at home. Jordan is off today, and we are trying to finish the closets upstairs and some home projects. It feels like all these house projects just never end, always something to do. We seriously know Ikea, and Home Depot like the back of our hands.

For today’s look, I wanted to share a casual outfit. I feel like it’s been a while since I have done one. This look is not only perfect for expecting mama, but for anyone. I am wearing maternity joggers, but you may have already seen joggers around; they’re quite a big trend. I have seen them worn with heels and dressed up, as well as dressed down as I am here.

Ethier way, if you have not gotten yourself a pair, get one. They’re like sweatpants prettier cousin. (did I just say that? haha!)

We all know I’m preggers (duh!) but I think it just now hit me. The boys are in MDO (Mother’s Day Out) and they go twice a week. It’s currently not enough days for them, or for me. Add a third kid into this mix, and it’s not enough days or hours. I’ve been calling around into different Montessori schools and preschools, and they are all so expensive! The thought of going and touring each school and finding one that is good enough is stressing me out. I’m hoping to find maybe a different church that offers MDO three days a week or maybe even five days a week. Fingers crossed!

Where am I going with all of this? Well, thinking about having three kids, and the daily struggles, I thought I would share my fears about having three children. Note: this is meant to be more comical than anything. Also, if you have three kids, share your tips below, and help a mama out! How do you simplify life? Is that even a thing??

So what am I’m scared of?

1. Ever leave the house on time. I am already always late. I mean how much later can I possibly be? It takes me 2 hours to get out of the house, does that mean I will now need three hours?
2. Scratch that, I’m scared I won’t ever leave the house period. I don’t have enough hands for three kids. I’m either going to get superb at babywearing, or not go anywhere unless they have a drive-thru. Also, how long will it take me getting three children out of the car?
3. Will I ever have time to get a shower? I just don’t see how or where the time for a shower even happens with that many kids.
4. What in the world will my body look like after baby number 3? Now, I know I can’t complain, I do have great genes thanks to my mom. But um, things are seriously going south, HA! Thank the Lord for push up bras. The amount of loose skin on my belly, and don’t even get me started on the stretch marks. It took me close to a year to get back into shape after Colin. I’m dreading all the burpees I will have to do after baby number 3.

I know these are all silly, and I know I will be okay. God won’t give me anything more than what I can’t handle. I guess I just needed to vent. Thanks for listening…. or reading. *wink*

  • Trista says: http://shopaholicandababy.com

    I am just so nervous about going from one to two! I don’t know how I’ll have enough hours in the day for both of them!

    • Elly says: http://www.uptownwithellybrown.com

      ahh. I remember having that feeling! It will get easier, I promise!

    I’m in that same boat! We’re expecting Baby #3 (and our 1st girl….eek!) in April. I have no idea how I’m going to handle life with 3, especially going out in public. It seems like things can go downhill quick, fast, & in a hurry with our 2 boys already. I’m just praying that maybe she’s going to be the more laid back one of the bunch!

      Sarah, I am praying for the exact same thing. Not sure if we are having a boy or girl yet, but I’m like if this is a girl PLEASEEEE let her be calm!!!

    I don’t have kids, but my cousin has 3 boys – 2, 4, and 6. So I hear about her struggles of having three boys in the shower with her in the mornings! You’ll get into your own routine and it will be awesome having 3 kids around 🙂

      hahaha, oh those morning showers are always so crazy here too!

    hahaha loved this! I’m not a mom yet (far from it! a little too young yet ?) but can’t wait to have kids of my own someday (if the Lord decides to bless me with some, that is ☺️) you’ll do great, and I would offer to babysit baby brown but I’m a little too far away! ?? xoxo

    Have you seen the YouTube channel called “jesssfamily”? She has 5 (yep, FIVE) kids and one was just born a couple of months ago and let me tell you.. she ROCKS! I don’t even have kids and my dogs keep me so busy, can’t imagine what I would do with three little munchkins! But you will do great!! You seem to have been born to be a mom! ❤

    • Elly says: http://www.uptownwithellybrown.com

      I have not heard of her! I am going to have to go look her up. I can do this though! 😉 We were made to do it right? Haha!
