This past weekend, my SIL and BIL were visiting with their 18 month old son. DH was out of town so we had 3 adults for 2 toddlers and one 6 month old infant. It was crazy! I don't know how those of you with 3 or more kids can do it. It was particularly fun to pile on 3 huge car seats in their Mazda 5 (DH was out of town with our car). I better stop at 2 because I don't think I could handle it!! :dizzy:

:) The girls and I went camping for a few night with my parents and 8 year old niece. We had an 8 yo, a 5 yo and 16 mo with 3 adults and still felt out numbered. What we really needed was an adult for the 8 yo, an adult for the 5 yo and two adults for the 16 mo.
So yeah, I know how you feel.

To be honest, some days *I* wonder how I am handling it!!

We are getting ready to have number 4, it's not that bad. It gets a bit easier when they get older. I hate switching car seats around though. I can't believe that in about a month or so I'll have 5 in my van (my 4 and one extra seat for carpool).
LOL - thanks for the validation. Although I'm still pretty newly into having three but some days I wonder if the sense of chaos is all in my head.
