3 Boys In 3 Years


If you would have told me even 5 years ago that I'd be standing in my kitchen today blogging about how I had 3 boys in 3 years with my husband, I'm pretty sure it's safe to say I would have told you that you're crazy  :)

It's funny to see how life unfolds and all that happened to bring you to where you are today.

Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of being a wife and mother. I know it might sound silly, but there were so many times that I was scared that wouldn't happen. I'm so beyond thankful that God knew the desires of my heart and has blessed me far beyond what I could have ever dreamed of.


I was 19 when I got pregnant.

Then my husband and I got married, we had our first son and my world was forever changed.

Then 21 months later we had our second son.

And then 19 months later we had our third son.

Cash and Takoda are 3 years and 4 months apart.

I often can't believe I have 3 boys and I'm only 23 years old.

It all happened much quicker than I thought it would, but I'm so happy it did.


But the reality of having 3 kids in 3 years?

It's challenging, I won't lie.

It's exhausting (both physically and mentally), it's defeating and it's frustrating.

I have to discipline my 3 and 1 year old every single day.

I have to keep them from being mean to each other and constantly make sure they're being careful around the baby.

There's potty training and currently two kids in diapers, so lots of poop to clean everyday.

Then sometimes while I'm trying to sit down and breastfeed Takoda, Stetson likes to throw yogurt at the furniture and walls. Or put stuff in the toilet. Or pick fights with Cash.
He's always naughty when I'm trying to take care of the baby, so that's a struggle.

And of course there's always someone to feed, laundry to be washed, dishes to be done and so. much. more.


BUT...

It's all worth it.

My husband and I built this family together and it is such an amazing feeling looking at these 3 boys and knowing we made that together. Our love went from just the two of us and grew to what it is now, these 3 little boys.

Each new smile the baby has, or new word Stetson says, or new thing Cash learns is so rewarding.

Those moments are what makes it all so worth it.

Each cuddle, kiss, and giggle fill my heart with so much love and make those hard days just a little bit better. :)

I often wonder what life will look like in 5 or 10 years, especially since 5 years ago I had no idea that this is what life would look like for me right now.

I am so thankful for these 3 boys that call me momma.

What a wild ride these last 3 years have been, but boy have they been amazing.

Now I'm off to go cuddle my baby and thank God for blessing me with these precious boys.


Have a great day, friends.

Xoxo,

Mandy The Momma

My Birth Stories

There is so much I could write about pregnancy, giving birth to my two sons and all that happens after. I thought about splitting this up into a bunch of different topics, but let's be honest...I don't get on here nearly as often as I'd like so I think it's a better idea for me to just sit down and take the time to blog about Cash and Stetson's birth stories in one sitting. I'll definitely have a separate blog post sometime in the future on pregnancy, but that is seriously a WHOLE different subject with a WHOLE lot of topics within itself.

So my son Cash will be 3 in September. I had a normal pregnancy with him; the morning (all day) sickness, exhaustion, fatigue, etc. I am so thankful that it was a healthy pregnancy and that my body was able to bring life to this little man.

Near the end of my pregnancy, D and I moved into our first apartment. I graduated from cosmetology school about a week before my due date and I ended up going into labor close to 41 weeks.…

I'm going to apologize in advance if this is all over the place. Hahaha. Blogging while your needy sick toddlers are around isn't the easiest and I've thought of a million different things I want to talk about as I've been writing, so this may seem a bit scatterbrained.
