Adjusting to 3!

Adjusting to life as a mom of 3 has not been easy for me. I remember reading a blog post from a particularly popular blogger saying it was no big deal and not hard to adjust to 3 and feeling like a big.fat.failure! Parenting looks different on everyone and while I have my bearings now and have grown to love and cherish my 3 ring circus – it still is never easy! kellyfondots_jennaactiva-5306Here’s a few of my unsolicited tips for transitioning to more kids! One thing I’ve learned to let go of is making everything from scratch for my kids to eat! Whether it’s a granola bar, trail mix, pre-packaged fruit or veggie cups, having them prepared for me makes the biggest difference!IMG_6419

Feeding myself is also something that comes last and it’s not good because I can’t think clearly on an empty stomach! I have a busy life and on top of all my motherhood responsibilities, I work, so it’s nice to have some easily accessible options in my fridge like Activia® Fruit Fusion. They have probiotics and taste delicious. I feel like on the really hard days it’s the only thing I can quickly grab to keep me full and focused. I feel better about using Activia® Fruit Fusion as a snack because of it’s nutritious benefits.kellyfondots_jennaactiva-5304

Second – find help that you trust. For me it was a cleaning lady. Someone that can dedicate a block of time that you might piece together over the course of a week takes so much pressure off me. Knowing I can rest easy, even under the clutter my house is clean. I have a lot on my plate with work as well so hiring myself an assistant has been amazing. Someone to do the tasks I dread and procrastinate, to keep me on task, and be my extra hands makes my work life possible. IMG_6438And as always, working mom or not, we all need breaks. So having someone that loves my kids on call for when I need a date night or have  deadline is so important. Stealing away 10 minutes here, an hour after bedtime there wasn’t feasible for me and I love being able to focus solely on my kids, or solely on work. I find I’m more successful in whatever role I am devoted to at the time this way.

I’m here to say that any adjustment no matter one kid, three kids seven, is tough! You’re dong such an incredible work – so be kind to yourself. Allow simple moments in your day to enjoy peace, quiet and hopefully a little bit of tasty yoghurt 😉
