3 kids under 5

[deleted account] ( 10 moms have responded )

I thought it would be fun to have 3 kids in 5 years. Was I crazy?? Sometimes I wonder how I am going to get through this. Other days I love it. My kids are 1, 4 and 5.

I have 5 boys who are 8, 7, 6, almost 4, and 2. We had 5 who were 5 and under for 9 days (my oldest didn't turn 6 until the youngest was 9 days old). We have our days, but now that the older ones are getting older, it's getting easier and I am so glad they are so close in age. Honestly, I wouldn't mind another one!

I have 3 kids under 5 also...4, 3 and 10 months. I am in total agreement of going crazy and loving it. It's totally worth it though!!!

I thought I would just have all my kids and get it over with and now I'm wondering how I'll manage. Helena is 4, Samantha is 2, and Alexandra is 6 months. The first two are 26 months apart and the second two are 22 months apart. I am looking forward to next year when Helena goes to kindergarten full time. I'll miss her, but Helena and Sam fight all day long! And, of course, it's always the 2 year old instigating. It sure is hard work, but I cannot wait until they're 4, 6, and 8...I think we'll have a lot of fun!!

wow I know how you feel, it is definitly alot of work. I am going to have 4 kids 5 and under in May. I know have 3 boys... 16 months, 3, and 5 and am due with a girl in May. Sometimes I wonder how I am going to survive the day and then I see their little faces and know it is all worth it.

yep three kids keeps me really busy too. my husband is done and i got my tubes tied, so no fourth for us. adrian just turned one on 11-14 so he's too young to want a brother. i'm hoping he is ok with his living arrangements as he gets older. :) i would have loved to have had another boy though.

I have 2 boys and a girl. Hannah really wants a sister. I always wanted 4 kids, but 3 keeps me way too busy. My husband and I go back and forth with a 4th child.
