Whatever trips your trigger

Nothing can prepare you for having 3 kids under the age of two. Nothing. No matter how much you want it, no matter how hard you fight for it, no matter what you would give up to have them. Nothing. I love being a mom and I feel very blessed to have my three little munchkins. But let me say it again, nothing can prepare you for having 3 kids under the age of two. Taking a shower, doing my hair and makeup, and getting dressed are three things that no longer occur on the same day. My wardrobe has widdled down to yoga pants and t-shirts, completed only by the mommy ponytail. My name isn't even Lynne, anymore. It's Momma. I do not aspire to clean house, I simply maintain. A fact my husband really hates. My daily goals include getting all the kids to nap at the same time so I can watch Y&R in peace and getting to bed at a reasonable hour. Goals are not always accomplishments. Most days, I keep up with them and as long as everyone's alive and well by the end of the day, I consider it a success. However, there are some days that I know I make it through only by the grace of God. And drinking lots and lots of coffee.
