I am so excited that I will be having my third baby in November. By then my son will be just over 2 and my daughter will 15 months old. I am wondering if there are any other moms out there with so many young kids at home, and how you manage housework, keeping them fed, clean, entertained and educated. Oh yeah, and how do you keep your sanity??

I have 3 kids ages 7, 3, and 2 and we have another one due Oct 5th. Having a regular scheule really helps, young kids like to know what comes next. Don't worry about keeping a perfect house as long as your kids are happy and healthy you are doing good.

Mine are 3, 2, and 6 months. I try but I don't keep the house as clean as I would like. We have a schedule that we try to keep. I do a lot of freezer and crockpot meals these days and we try to get out as often as we can. I don't know that I really keep my sanity all the time but I try to go work out at the rec center once a week just to get a little time to myself. It's crazy sometimes but you figure it out after a while. Good luck.

Just remember to enjoy your time with them and don't worry so much about the house. Take lazy days when you need too. When your kids are grown, you'll look back and remember the memories, not the mess.

First off congratulations. Secondly I have NO idea how to keep your sanity lol. I would definitely have a tight schedule though and have lots of help. If your mom lives nearby utilize her help. Mine are 3.5 years apart so I couldn't imagine having 3 under 3. But people do it. Allow yourself some me time. That's REALLY important. Don't worry about the house, another very important tip. I mean do the obvious like laundry and dusting, but not to the extreme.

Get up at the same time everyday. Make sure your SO HELPS!!!!
I hear that so much. It's rough on a mom to run the household alone!
Don't sweat the small stuff!
