The Struggles of Back to School & Threenagers

Ok…I will admit I was super ready for my girls to go back to preschool just like everyone else. However, the I’m-so-tired-I-can’t-stop-crying-but-don’t-want-to-sleep-but-don’t-want-to-play-but-want-to-snuggle-on-the-couch-but-why-are-you-laying-DOWN-on-the-couch-I-want-to-sit-UP-and-cover-me-up-with-a-blanket-but-not-THAT-one-I-want-the-PINK-one-DONT-LET-MY-FEET-STICK-OUT-OF-THE-BLANKET struggle bus were on right now is R E A L. The twins are three and a half so… if you were wondering what the definition of a threenager is…


😂🙈 This is my sweet Emery girl. I legit texted my husband and asked if I would be a terrible mom for sharing this picture on the internet. And he said I wouldn’t so…you’re welcome! 🤣

Adalyn has definitely been having her moments as well but Emery seems to be struggling the most.

Lately I pick the girls up from school and E immediately has a full on meltdown. To which their teacher responds, “they are perfect little angels all day long, there is never any of that for me….” OF. COURSE NOT. Gotta save all the drama for their Mama! 🤣 Does this happen to anyone else??

This is the first year they are doing 3 days a week at school instead of 2. Not to mention they hardly ever take a nap anymore 😭. So I am trying to remind myself that they are just soo tired and that I need to have extra patience. So I sit, and I snuggle, and I do my best not to make anyone explode…

Last night at 1 am Emery was up for over an hour crying because she “didn’t want to sleep” and she wanted her Sissy to wake up too! After an hour of me going in and out of her room, laying with her, her laying with me, trying to reason [why, Sarah??] with her that she is very tired and that is why she can’t stop crying, bargaining with her, basically trying everything I can think of to get her to just be quiet and pleeeease go back to sleep….it was me offering her a VITAMIN that finally did it, who would of known??? 🤷🏼‍♀️🙈 I would start with that next time but we all know it will never work that same way again.

I can only imagine that this is a small glimpse of all the emotions and drama that will flood our home during the teenage years with 3 daughters. Plus I’m sure all 4 of us will be PMS’ing at the same time and my husband will probably initiate monthly fishing trips…feel free to start praying for us now. Oh and send wine. All the wine.

Cheers Loves,
