We started talking about having our third baby when our middle was a baby himself. Right after the middle child turned 1, I got pregnant with my third. One of the truths from the article below that REALLY rang true for me was that the oldest seemed like such a big kid at every age, and when the youngest reaches the same age you still think of them as a baby. Does that make any sense? For example, my oldest was just 4 when my youngest arrived. I remember expecting so much more from him at that age then I do from my daughter who is almost that age now. (Sorry, Darren. 😉 )
Anyway here they are, 20 Truths About Having Three Kids.
My husband and I thought we were done having kids after we had our first two. Then when our youngest was 3 and we had just celebrated chucking the diapers- surprise! -pregnant! We rolled with it, and now I can't imagine life without our three kids. It did change things, though.
