My Hectic Life

Sure, things are insanely easier now that the kids are 3 but I’m not going to lie, life is still very hectic.  For example

– I still eat standing up

– My meals are often my kids leftovers

– When I’m home by myself, making dinner is impossible without the TV.

– There are still no open cups allowed in our house

– Some days, I still drink my coffee cold

– I need at least 3 cups of coffee during the course of a day

– I go to the bathroom with the door open

– I sometimes don’t wash my hands

– Once the kids are buckled into their car seats, I go back inside for at least 5 more minutes to get my stuff ready to go.

– I bought my kids “winter crocs” and fleece lined jackets for them to wear ONLY to and from school.  The crocs are a breeze for the kids to put on themselves and I refuse to mess with coats and carseats every morning. Even in a blizzard,  my kids will walk the 10 feet from the car to school  in  fleece lined jackets and warm crocs.  No bulky coats, no gloves, no hats, no scarves, no fuss!  (Don’t worry, I have actual snow clothes for them to play outside in).

– I buy children’s ibuprofen in bulk.  The largest size and the double package!

– All three of my kids still take a bath together

-I’m going to write my own book titled “everyone calm the “f” down!”

-When a grandparent asks “Do you guys want a break?” I still laugh in their face “uh…duh….hell yes!”

– I sometimes don’t let my children drink water when we’re out and about to avoid spending hours in the bathroom (because of course, “I don’t need to go potty right now”..when we are in the freaking’ bathroom!

– A full night’s rest, without a single waking, is still pretty rare.

-7:30 AM is still considered “sleeping in”

– 7:30-10:00 PM is still my favorite time of the day

– When someone nostalgically states “They grown up so fast, before you know it they’ll be in kindergarten”, I’m secretly jumping up and down with joy!

– TV is still a lifesaver!  Honestly, I feel like I should write the creators of Dora and Diego a personal thank you note!

Although life is much more manageable, having triplets still has its quirks.  I imagine one day we will eat family dinners, I may get a full night’s rest and I won’t spend half my day in the bathroom.  Until then, yeah, life is still pretty hectic.

    Kara,
    I am always amazed at how well you write your experiences. I remember how hard it was at times with three boys of different ages and I continue to be fascinated that you do all you do with three of the same age! Keep up the good work and keep up your wonderful writing. You will really enjoy reading this in several years!

    Love it! I’ll definitely read your “everybody calm the f down!” book! I just have 1, but I’m with you on spending a lot of time in the bathroom, considering 7:30am equivalent to sleeping in, and enjoying the day after 8pm. And maybe I should write Sesame Street a thank-you note too.

    Put me down for a signed copy of your book too please (maybe two or three). I think we could all use a little wisdom on that topic 🙂

  4. Hi there! This post could not be written any better!
    Reading through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept talking about this. I most certainly will send this post to him.
    Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi there, I do believe your site could be having web browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Apart from that, wonderful website!

  6. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme.

    Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?

    Plz respond as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to
    know where u got this from. kudos

  7. Excellent web site you have got here.. It’s hard
    to find high quality writing like yours nowadays. I really appreciate

    Incase you have a vintage electric motor lying in you could create
    a straight forward disk sander.
