Everything Happens in Threes

Thursday, July 29, 2004
Further to yesterday's post on the joys and perils of being an imperfect parent, I just stumbled across the most magnificent essay over at Literary Mama. It's all about the challenges of having a larger-than-average family which -- these days -- means having more than your allotted 1.4 kids. In On Having Three Kids, Jennifer Eyre White writes about what it's like to be nursing one kid and breaking up a fight between two others. White does an amazing job of describing the general mood of grouchiness that seems to have invaded her family since she gave birth to baby number three six weeks ago -- something that gave me flashbacks to my own postpartum days.
