3 of Me

If there were 3 of me, I could do oh so much.

I could be at dance, baseball, and relaxing all at once.

When Saturday comes, I won't fret, which way will I go?

Is Yaya available? Will I root for DQ or My Boy.

Competition times two.

Two towns, two times, two parents, 3 kids.

Mathematically incorrect.

Try out for winter sports I say.

Busy.

All fun stuff.

Sun, stands.

Auditoriums, reclining seats.

Don't make me choose.

If only there were 3 of me.

That 3rd one would eat the bon bons, drink the wine.

Get the pedicure, waste time.

Eeney Meeny Miney Mo.

Of to which activity will I go?!

    I KNOW THE FEELING! This year I can add child #3 to the mix. Last year it was between my two boys who, unfortunately are not old enough in age to play on the same team! Miss Missy wants to do ballet this year. Does that trump football practice?

    Cloning? Might be an option for future Mamas.

    I remember those days when I had kids in different events and classes and there was only me. I would come help you if you weren't so far away. I wonder if I could hire out as a granny?

  8. Lindsay said...

    ooo such tough decisions!! So which one did you chose ;-)

  9. wife.mom.nurse said...

    Oh so true girl!

    Torn, nobody warned us how torn we would be. And I only have 2-but firehubby is gone so often that I am juggling!

    I think the third me and the third you would happily eat bon bons and drink a bottle of wine together ")

  10. Jill said...

    Oh I'm right there with you! I seriously need an extra set of hands, eyes, and mouths!

  11. Amy Amy Bo Bamey said...

    I am right there with ya!

    Daughter starts 2 dance classes this week and between that and son's baseball which is about 4 days a week I am going to have decisions to make as well.

    Just wait till K starts up with stuff!

  15. He And Me + 3 said...

    I have 3 children & in the same boat. I have no advice for you.

  16. Mama Dawg said...

    Yaya...is that a grandmother? If so, that's awesome. That's what my daughter calls my mother.

  17. Sarah said...

    I can only imagine! Mine are all too little for sports and activities, but I already feel like there isn't enough of me to go around. What's a mom to do?

  18. Kim said...

    Oh I feel your pain. My oldest is 17 and luckily only does wrestling now but does body building everynight too.
    My middle child starts basketball skills today and then soccer next week.
    The youngest is doing a special class on weds nights for preschoolers.
    Throw in dinner and time for homework and I'm beat.

  19. Clare said...

  20. jennykate77 said...

    Love this! I can only imagine how hard it is when you have 3 kiddos to get places and do things with! Kuddos to you, you seem to do a good job of it...and blog too! ☺

  21. ParentingPink said...

    Oh, I so need three arms too. Heck I need three selves! LOL. Glad I'm not alone!

  22. blueviolet said...

    I always hated when the activities conflicted with each other. I couldn't stand to miss any of their events!

  23. Elaine A. said...

    Oh geez, I don't look forward to those days... Good luck figuring it all out!!

  29. Colleen said...

    I think we should grow an extra set of arms for everykid we have...but I guess it wouldnt help much when we need to be in 10 different places at once!

    I tagged you
