I always wanted to be a mom. When we had Ben, I realized what a challenge motherhood can be. Still, Bry and I wanted to give Ben a sibling. What we weren't expecting was that Ben will have not just 1 but 2 sisters :)
Family and friends have been asking me how we manage handling 3 kids. That has always been my concern ever since I found out I was pregnant. Now I realize, no matter how much we prepare for parenthood, sometimes you just have to trust your instincts and just do it. The same goes with breastfeeding the twins. I take things a day at a time, thankful for each day that the kids are fed and healthy. Breastfeeding is working for me because it makes me consciously think of the twins even when there's a tendency for their brother to monopolize my time and attention. There are moments when I feel so overwhelmed I'd cry but somehow the Lord is able to give me that extra burst of energy when I need it the most.
What also gives me strength is that I am lucky enough to be surrounded my supermoms who inspire me. They are there when I need a boost and when I think of them, I'd tell myself, if they can do it, then I can, too.
I must admit, there are times when I wish the kids will grow up a bit faster so they can be independent, but I know once they do I'll miss this stage in their lives. We love you, Ben, Bree and Bea. May you love each other as much as your dad and I love you :)
