Three Kids

I just found out one of my dearest friends is pregnant with her 3rd child! I’m so happy for her growing family. She obviously knows that life is going to change yet again. I don’t think many are prepared for how much life changes when you go from 2 children to 3 children. I absolutely love all of my children and I wouldn’t change a thing. Now I can also say that having the 3rd one is a whole new ballgame.

Basketball. I played once….and I remember a little bit about playing strategies. You see, for those of you who don’t know or don’t remember, you can play Man to Man defense. This is fairly straight forward. You have your guy and you don’t let him leave your side. Or you can play Zone defense. You are basically guarding your area and therefore anyone who comes into your “zone.” Sounds great, right? Well, if I remember correctly, playing zone requires a lot more skill.

Having 2 kids, you are basically playing man to man. One on one. Easy peasy. The third one comes along and you are forced to play zone. I guess some people might be natural zone parents, but it has sure been a challenge for me! Especially when you consider that one of my players is out of the game for 8, 10, 12 hours/day. (We can just pretend work is a technical foul.) Yeah, sure. I try every once in a while to get the oldest one to play on my team, but to be honest, he’s not the strongest player. 🙂 At best, he acts as a referee….and at worst…we won’t go there. I’m not sure the current score, but the kids are probably winning. 🙂

Having 3 kids changes everything but I’ll get this zone thing down.

    So is it Lianne that is pregnant?
    That would be my first guess.
    Your analogy to basketball is very good 🙂
    Love you all,
