Phone Post: How Do You Do It?

As a mom of three, I’m often asked this question; how do you do it? How do you handle three kids? I have one and I go crazy. Please tell me there’s a magic way of raising sweet children and having them stay that way.

Sorry Charlie, there is no magic way, magic pill or anything that I do to raise my three kids. I just do it. Most days I have no idea how I got here or what I did to have my kid on the honor roll or how my son’s favorite vegetable is broccoli (I hate broccoli).

My kids are now 14, 12 & 6. Where did my babies go? That’s my question. Kids grow so fast and some parents are always looking for the perfect way to raise their child/ren but guess what?

There is none.

I don’t think you can learn how to raise a child by reading a book – you just have to do it. You learn as you go and just know you will make mistakes but hey, that’s life. Right?

Disclosure: This post was written entirely on either my phone or my iPod Touch. Usually Phone Posts will be short, sweet and to the point. I was probably either in a doctor’s office, waiting in line or just bored out of my mind. I hope you’ll enjoy my phone posts.


  1. I have 3 and it tests my sanity daily! Thankfully they do well in public so only my parents and CLOSEST friends have seen the real chaos that is my daily life. Usually we get compliments on their behavior from others.

  2. That’s so funny I have the same experience! My son is four and a handful. But out in public he behaves so well. I’ve gotten compliments at the Post Office!!! But at home he can be a nightmare. It definitely is hard to parent and every child is different just like every person is different. It’s basically trial and error until you find what works for you and your family.
