    Dear Momma with three kids under 5,

    I promise people will tell you it will get easier as they get older; I can promise the challenges will change, and there will be more time to breathe as they do things for themselves more. They will help each other and be there for each other, no matter what, because you do what you do. You are doing beautifully!

      Thank you so much Jennifer!! That is certainly an encouragement from another Momma who has been where I am (plus one!) All the best to you in those new challenges! Someday I’ll be in your place, and I hope I’ll be able to encourage another Mama who is where I’m at now 😉

    About to be here myself… My oldest is 3.5, Second-born is 14 months and our Angel baby is due 10/30. I’m also home schooling, so we start preschool this fall 😉

    • Eryn Lynum says:

      I’m right there too with homeschooling! Our oldest (turning five in July) starts kindergarten this fall. All the best to you, and congratulations on your new one coming!!

    This is amazing! I don’t even know you but I feel so proud of you! You can tell by reading this how much you love your babies. You ar a supermom!

    • Eryn Lynum says:

      Oh my goodness Alexie, thank you! I definitely don’t often feel like a supermom, but I will take it!! 😉

  4. Oh BLESS you. I can so relate to every. single. word. of this as I had my four girls within 5 years. It’s fascinating really…..I had an epiphany last year when going through a hard season of realizing that I had four small children to care for, none of whom could yet tie their own shoes, all use the bathroom on their own or even get food/water themselves. That is a LOT of needs to constantly care for all day, every day, without cease. Don’t know why it took me so long to start being more gracious with myself lol!! Thank you for writing this, it’s fantastic. And YOU are doing an amazing job mama!!
