What It Feels Like To Almost Be A Mom Of Three


I am just about a month away from giving birth to my third child, a baby boy. I have a sweet and responsible four-year-old boy and a spunky, independent two-year-old girl. My husband and I have been married for eleven years and I am well into my mid-thirties. Each of my children will have been born in a different state. We started in California, moved to Virginia, and are now living in the state of Washington. Our parenting journey has been a wild one so far and yet we felt brave enough to add a third child to the mix.

You could say my hands feel very full these days. Being pregnant a third time around has definitely been a new experience. Balancing the physical and emotional hurdles of pregnancy while keeping up with two rambunctious little ones leaves me exhausted at the end of each day. But as I approach the end of this pregnancy and will have our baby boy in my arms soon, I know it will all be worth it.

Throw in the pandemic of this last year and a lot of challenges our world has faced, and it has all brought new light to my role as a mother. Just like so many, I see my life a little differently. I am more thankful for the little things. And ultimately it is my family that is most important to me. I know this better now than ever. And as we add another tiny human to our little gang, I am so grateful for the perspective I now have.
