Earlier this week, the Today Show shared a piece by Today Moms on how parents of three children felt more stress than parents with fewer children or even more children. According to their survey, parents of three often feel outnumbered, whereas parents of four or more children tend to be more relaxed.
Being a mom of three, I definitely feel outnumbered, over-stressed and have resorted to self medicating with beer or wine. However, one too many glasses and I could hit the magic number of four children. Of course, I’ll be more relaxed and I’ll drink less due to something called the “Duggar Effect“. Sure. I’ll drink to that.
Happy Mother’s Day!
What are you reflecting on this Mother’s Day? Do you have one, two, three or more children? Do you feel stressed or does the idea of more children stress you out?
