I'm trying to figure out how to be a mom of three.
Lately I have been able to get ready in the morning, keep the house somewhat clean, get laundry kinda done, and keep everyone fed and alive.
Now I'm trying to figure out how to be fun too.
 How to play barbies, and go for walks.
 How to have an imagination again, and initiate play.
Its kinda tricky, and I imagine I will being trying to figure this balancing act my whole life.

The great thing is that your older girls should be getting to the point of being able to initiate play between themselves. I think too often we, as moms, think we have to play with our kids most of the day and help them play but I am always amazed at the amazing things my girls have come up with when I take a step back and leave myself out of their playing.

And can I just say I bet you rock at imaginary play :)

That is where I am at! Only I have just 2. I try and maintain a clean home, but all too often I neglect the kiddos needs other than food/sleep. Its hard because sometimes when I just done the dishes or put laundry away, I just want to relax and hold my baby, but then I see poor Olivia playing by herself and I hope she doesn't think I ignore her. So you and I are working on this :)
