Must get sleep

Whoever said if you have three kids, you may as well four because there's no difference, clearly only had three children.

I love all four of my children and would not trade my life for the world;  but kids,  is too hard to ask to try and plan illnesses, festivals, parties and friendship drama on my planner so that I can have a break every once in a while and be occasionally prepared. 

Your mommy is worn out.

I am praying that tonight is the night I get to sleep more than four hours in a row. It's not too much to ask, is it?

My parents had FIVE!

I am convincing nominating them for sainthood! Seriously.

I would eventually have to consider the benefits of Children's Benadryl: A parent's remedy for a good night sleep!

I only have three and I am right there with you! I had five for the entire weekend and figured out that I will probably never have 5!

Oh sweetie, I really hope you get some rest soon.

Just remind yourself that when the time comes when they are all out of the house, you'd want some restless nights at home with your kids. (I know my in-laws and my parents all remind me of that!)

OH (((((HUGS)))) I feel your pain.. I hope you get some sleep tonight.. I could use about 2 days of non stop sleep right now.. and illness has totally messed up our party plans.. Poor Sweet Pea has had to push her birthday party back twice now. BUt I'm still giggling about the comment if you have 3 you might as well have 4.. because I have said and felt that way often.. and I have 4.. but mostly talking about the change there is when you add the 4th to the family. my biggest change was going from 1 to 2.. after two adding the 3rd and the 4th was like nothing.

Oh goodness, may you be able to get some rest soon. To this day I still ask my Mother how she did it with four, it's mind-warping!

Sending hopes for a restful weekend,

I hate it when people say that too! Hope you got some shut eye!

I am one of six. My husband, one of fix. My father was the baby of 13.

I like big families, but my three children make my family complete.

Two children are hard, but once you've had three, you can have 12 and it wouldn't make much different. Somehow, the third child is so much bigger challenge than any other.

Nice blog. I'll be back

AMEN. I've only got 3, but now that it's just me, some days it feels like they've multiplied, lol! Come ON Spring!
