You Know You Have 3 Little Ones 19 Months and Under When….

When you grocery shop you have to use two grocery carts, one for the babies and the other one for food.

When you change an average of 7-10 poopy diapers a day and that is on a good day!

When your monthly shipment of diapers arrives in a box the size of your fridge.

When you can hold and feed a baby while cooking lunch and feeding your two toddlers.

When holding two little ones at one time is no big deal.

When you’re holding a crying baby and a screaming toddler and you look over to find your other toddler eating dirt and you decide it’s ok.  A little dirt won’t hurt!

When you sit down at the end of the day and you have to stare at a wall in complete silence for 15 minutes to decompress before you can do anything else.

When you find your morning coffee still in the microwave at 9pm.

When you do the same crafts moms of singletons do only to realize they make a little more mess when you try to do them with two toddlers instead of one.

When you go anywhere you have to take a minimum of two bags full of sippy cups, bottles, pacifiers, extra clothes, diapers, toys, a baby carrier (maybe 2) and three days worth of snacks…

You have at least 5 strangers stop you any time you are out to tell you that “you have your hands full”, or “double trouble”, or my absolute favorite “better you than me”!

When a trip to Sams counts as your Sunday family outing.  Free snacks included!

When you are asked if your twins are “natural”.  Ummm…yes, they aren’t synthetic….

When you have heard the comment “Twins! Oh two for the price of one!” Not so much, it’s really two for the price of two. Have you ever tried putting two babies in one car seat or a single stroller? Let me tell you, it’s not easy to do!

When you’ve been asked how it’s possible to have three children 19 months and under.  Here’s my secret, I am an expert at growing tiny humans so I only have to gestate my babies for 4 months instead of 9.

When your toddlers have highchair races across your kitchen and that counts as an exciting Friday night

When you are asked if you planned on having your kids this close together by the stranger behind you in line at the grocery store.  By the way my favorite response is “Yes we sure did! We are actually trying for number 4 now!” which is completely not true, but let’s be honest it’s really none of their business anyways and this response always curbs any other curiosity they may have.

When your house is full of three times the giggles, snuggles, hugs and smiles.

When you get to hear “I wub u mama” twice!  It melts my heart every time!

When your home is crazy, chaotic, energetic, loud, messy and extremely full of joy and you wouldn’t have it any other way!

    Whitney,
    You and your husband are amazing with everything you do. I love reading about your boys. I am so glad that GOD has blessed you with threee healthy happy bouncing boys. I can’t wait to see what they will become. You show moms that it is ok to have downs and up as long as you make the time count! I love the last picture on this post. It fits so well!

    Naw! Life sounds so crazy happy, busy and absolutely delightful! Sorry I haven’t been dropping by recently. I’ve kind of had a self inflicted blog drought. But when I do drop by, I so love hearing about your family life! I’m so grateful for the friendships one can make through blogging! Have a wonderful day!
