Having six kids under eleven is much easier than having three kids under four or two kids under two (both of which I also tried).
It’s easier because I have helpers now (As an aside: if there is any way you could figure out how to have an eight year old girl before you have a baby, I would highly recommend it. They are the BEST!) and because I’m different than I was when I had one and two and three. I basically know what to expect from babies and toddlers and kids and more importantly, I trust my parenting instincts.
So here are some of my From the Trenches posts: things I’ve learned by putting my hours in. Things I wish I’d known back then when I was just starting this crazy, amazing journey.
