My husband is a firefighter/paramedic and goes on shift for 48 hours at a time every week so people ask me all the time how I take my three little girls to do fun stuff so often without his help.
First of all, it takes practice. Every time I have added a child to our family it's taken a bit of adjusting and when I first go out it's hard. After a few times it's not as hard or scary and I adjust and get better at it. The more I do it the easier it gets, both for me and my kids.
There are a few things I never leave home without to make it easier to juggle three tinies.
First, I LOVE my baby carrier from diapers.com. It frees up my hands to take care of my other two and makes three not seem as overwhelming.
Second, I always have BAND-AIDS. I'm not the only one with young kids who goes through a lot of BAND-AIDS, am I? I have a special pocket for them in my purse because it seems like my active kids are always scraping their knees or have some other trivial "emergency" that can easily be fixed with a kiss and a Frozen BAND-AID.
Third, I LOVE these.
You just stick these disposable placements to the table when you eat out and I don't leave home without them. They make stopping for food super easy because I don't cringe every time my 3-year-old pours her fries at Chick fil A out on the table and the cleanup is a cinch!
