Awww, Aren't They So Sweet And Innocent?

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Just kidding. Kinda. Consider this. Technically it is possible to have four children aged 3 and under if you throw one set of twins into the mix. *Shudder* Yesterday went fine, but there is no way I could handle this on a regular basis. Daycare moms and parents of multiples are saints in my eyes. Heck I'll say if you have four or more kids you're a saint. Three every day is most definitely my limit. It's good to know our limits, right?

Okay, I have the whole double chin thing going on here, but I decided to quit being so vain & post this photo anyway. I do love the moment it captured even if I do look every bit of my age! This I can handle. Relaxing with my girls after the twins went home.

you'd be fine with four kids! i never dreamt of having 4 (let alone in under 4 years). you adjust to the craziness. one day at a time. (this winter when Tanya was in the hospital, i had 9 kids (6 and under) for awhile.) i was more than happy to JUST have 4 again :)

Yeah, 4 kids can make ya go crazy, I'm proof of that! About that double chin, Mindy, my goodness, at your age?? Actually, I had never noticed.

It's possible to have 5(FIVE!) kids 3 and under...my sis did. The lasr three were triplets. And people asked if she took fertility drugs, like anyone with a 1 and 2 yrs. old would do something like that!

Mindy said...

I sooo hear you on the whole 4 kids thing - I think my 2 are enough for me!!

Mimi/Susan is my Aunt - and the sister she is talking about (my other Aunt) is still sane. All 5 kids grew up happy and healthy - they're all normal and so are my Aunt and Uncle. The triplets are now 34 years old. One lives in NH, one lives in GA, and the other lives in TX. Just a little info. you didn't know you didn't know. (My Mom was the 1st of 3 girls.)

i love how natural and cozy everyone looks in that picture! you deserved a rest!!
i, for one, was overwhelmed with one kid, so now with more kids i'm still overwhelmed. i know i've said that before , but, it's true! you can never love them enough..that's for sure!

I had 5 kids, 5 and under, I don't remember what the ratio was when I had 4. Kids have a way of making you loose your mind. No matter how many you have. We survive tho. Having kids when you have older kids around makes a huge difference tho. I had plenty of build in help.
I like the first picture, and I don't see any double chin either. We're way to critical of our pictures :)
