2 Are Easier Than 3

Yesterday the father and I took the girls to the doctor and left Little Man with his aunt and cousin. He didn't need to go, so there was no need to take him. No offense to parents of twins, but two kids are easier than three. We were amazed at how easy we could get around. One parent for each child. It was a breeze. I'm sure this is a common discovery among parents of multiples though. When you have 1 or 2 less than the normal amount of children, it would naturally seem easier.

Ah yes! Two ARE easier than three!! It really annoys my brother who has twins, 9 months (to the day) younger than our trio - whenever I say "Twins would be a piece of cake!!"

A couple weeks ago, my DH took our son and left town for 4 days, leaving me home with 2-23 month olds. Even though I was still outnumbered - two babies as opposed to three, was like a vacation.

Even though 2 would be easier than 3, I wouldn't trade my triplets for all the tea in China! Just think of the stories we have to tell... :)

Hi! I have twins of my own who are 19 months and a singleton who is 7 months and most of my time is alone with them all. My husband works a lot, so there isn't as much help there as I would like. I imagine that, yes, two are nothing compared to three all at the same time!

I had nightmares when I was pregnant with the twins that I was actually having quints. I couldn't figure out why that was more scary than quads until my sister pointed out that two parents have four arms . . . what would you do with the fifth baby?!


Nice blog. Hope you don't mind if I visit once in a while!
