Taking care of three kids alone

I always admire those who take care of more than two young children alone. I think it's really not easy, especially when the children like to do their own things and go their own ways. My baby is 6 week old now, and I haven't really take care of my three children for the whole day. My parents were here to help me out in the first month after I gave birth, then my husband always tries to stay at home to help out too. If he really has to go out, he'd choose to go out after lunch, so he can still prepare the lunch for us. Today, he has to go out in the morning and he will only be back very late at night. So, this leaves me and the three children at home. I know I will be able to handle them, but I hope I can manage everything well for the whole day, with peace and joy too. Hope I will not scold my two elder children because of my exhaustion today. Wish me good luck! Do you have experience taking care of a few young children?

Well reading your latest post first, I know you that you did quite well to take care of them all on your own . . . good for you! I have taken care of a few young ones at the same time, but it was never for the full day . . . we're only talking to watch for a few minutes while the mother does something, or during a field trip where we are assigned a few children to be in charge of. And surely if it were my own kids, it's a different story from taking care of other children. In any case, any amount of children means full hands . I applaud moms who can do it all like you!!

I always think you are an amazing lady who can take care of three children and meanwhile have some part time job. You are even busier than a career woman I know your two elderly children are very good children and I am sure they will help you a lot to take care of the little baby. You are lucky

Two children was enough for me, but I'm sure you will cope. Good luck.

I guess there are many who have to take care of the children during the day on their own. My sister-in-law had five children quite close together and I know life was very hectic for her for a few years.

Yes, I used to babysit my nieces and nephews when they were still little.
