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 a few house projects. It feels like all these house projects never end! We seriously know Ikea, and Home Depot like the back of our hands.

For today’s look, I wanted to share a casual outfit. 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 elevated sweatpants, and bonus points if they have leg pockets!

We all know I’m preggers, 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 leaving the house on time. I am always late. 
  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 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, mah ladies 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*
