I just wanted to make a simple observation. It is so simple and silly I think I may delete the post before publishing. You see, today a friend has my 2 older girls. That left me with 2 toddlers and a walking baby. I am usually with all 5 so having 2 less always feels so different, so EASY!! I know it should seem harder with the 3 little ones but this is what I notice. When it is just 1 age group I have an easier time managing them. The tricky part comes with managing 2 different age groups.
Now you add the girls to that same scene and it turns into some mental work…
“Mama, can we have a milkshake?” “Mama, remember we needed to go to Barnes and Noble to get me my 3000th book.” “Mama did Mrs. So and So call to say if Rebecca can come over? Can we just go pick her up on the way home?” “What’s for dinner?” “What do you think sharks think about?” “Mama, can I have a milkshake now?”
These little guys are so much fun though. They don’t know what they are missing. They don’t ask for a milkshake. They don’t ask what’s for dinner.
I have fun with both age groups. It’s just nice to get a day every now and again to be a mom to just little kids. They really are so much fun!!
