While three children is actually the most stressful number of kids to have, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go for it. Or does it?
According to a poll conducted by the Today show. Three is more stressful than one or two, and four (or more) is reportedly less stressful than three! Crazy right?
If you’re thinking about adding to your family, here is a list of pros and cons about having three kids:
- Endless love
- Hand-me-down clothes and toys
- There’s always a tie-breaker
- More hands on deck
- Built-in friends
- A wide safety net
- Your love continues to expand with each one
- Every child is so different and unique
- Third baby is often so much easier
- You’re too busy to care about mummy wars, “mom fails” and mummy shaming
- You are also way too busy to helicopter parent
- You have more kids than hands!
- You can’t just order one pizza
- You can’t give anyone a ride
- Constant triage
