So I get asked a lot “what is it like having kids so close in age?” And normally I answer, “oh it’s fun most days” or ” it has it’s good and bad days but for the most part is great” but today my children gave me my true answer! My oldest and middle are 17 months apart my middle and youngest are a few days shy of 15months apart. So basically I have 3 toddlers all at once! Now let’s get on to the topic!
My 10month old has been running a fever ksince last night, still just really tired and fevered today. So my mind has been everywhere and my 3yr old ask me for cereal, so I like a dummy gave her the bag of cereal. I got up to get nail clippers for my 10month old to clip his nails, first I walk down the hall way stepping all over cereal and the first thing out of my mouth, “really y’all”, so I make it in my room can’t find the damn clippers so I walk out and happen to see fruity pebbles all at my boys door way, I walk and look in they had dumped cereal EVERYWHERE and I was like, “you have got to be fucking joking” I walk out to get the broom and see more cereal at my daughter’s door so i look in the room and of course fruity pebbles all over the place, that isn’t even the worse part. The worse was they had poured it all in her toys and had toys pulled out and so I had to sit there and pick toys out of crushed up cereal. Also while picking toys up every bowl or cup or teapot I picked up had cereal in it! I asked them, “did y’all need to dump the cereal everywhere?” My 3yr old says, “no but it was fun!” I just stood there like, 🤦♀️. So for everyone who wants to know what it’s like having kids barely a year apart, that is what it’s like. Having crushed up cereal all over your house and couch and no matter how much you clean you keep finding more! 🙋
