caffeine, concealer and eye drops.

do you want to know what i've learned in the past four weeks?

everything i've ever heard about having three kids is true.

every. single. word.

it's an entirely new level of busy.
the kind of busy that keeps you occupied and frazzled all day long,
and yet at the end of the day, you don't really have anything to show for it.

until something happens that reminds you why you do it.

your baby smiles at you for the first time.
 and in that moment you realize the madness of caring for three small children
is not only worthwhile, it's a gift.

You nailed it. I'm still trying to survive three kids. Actually, it's just been in the past month that it's gotten easier for me and Soph's 4! :) Part of the hardship has also been that she's been too shy to do anything on her own like preschool etc...she's finally coming around. They are worth it though, time goes too fast!

You are so right!! Glad to hear your days are crazy too...this week my laundry sat in the dryer for 2 days until I had a second to get it out without Kason attached to my chest! Thank goodness for the smiles and loves that make it all worthwhile!

3 kids is well...taking a toll on me as too. getting really good at letting things go. feels good. i have even had a couple days of two 32 oz beverages. not good.
i keep reminding myself to enjoy this...it won't last forever.

We just booked online for Red Rock. I WOULD TOTALLY STAY THERE. It was really chic, clean, and modern. The pools were amazing... just wish it was warmer and we could have enjoyed them more. I think our rooms were about $120ish a night. Don't know if the prices go up during more peak months. There was also a $25 resort fee a day. The gym was AWESOME too... for Marc to warm up for the Iron Man. So glad you guys get to have a little getaway!
