guest post @ What To Expect

If you're anything like me, you are well acquainted with the famous pregnancy manual, What To Expect When You're Expecting. I bought a copy secondhand the week I found out I was pregnant with Lily and read it cover to cover. Fourteen months later, I did the exact same thing again when I found out I was pregnant with Oli. For my third pregnancy (in three years!) I didn't read the book cover to cover (who has time with two kids?) but I downloaded the app on my iPhone and have visited the website (along with Babycenter.com) almost weekly.

I was honoured to be asked to guest post on their blog, Word of Mom, on having three kids under three. Here's a snippet:

My daughter is a little fire cracker. Just starting to talk and express herself clearly, and physically thriving and advancing in leaps and bounds. She just started daycare a couple days per week which has been incredible for her socially and linguistically (she was a late talker, and her daycare is in our second language, French). She's still two-years-old but often we accredit far more wisdom and responsibility to her than her age presumes. But it's not just us being crazy parents. It's because she's the eldest of three siblings already.

You read that right! And before you ask, I'll just go ahead and answer your questions because I get the same ones all the time. Yes, I love the idea of three kids under three (our third is due in September, four weeks after our eldest turns three). No, we didn't adopt or have twins - I've been pregnant for a long time! No, I don't love pregnancy or the newborn stage. Yes, we planned it this way. And no, we're not sure if we're done! Surprised? Me too.
