Being a Mother of Three Causes the Most Stress

Survey Says Being a Mother of Three Causing the Most Stress for Mothers

If you’re a mother of three you probably can relate that “three” is the magic word for stress. New celeb parents of three Prince William and Kate Middleton along with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West joined the three kid club this year and probably found out pretty quickly their stress level jumped a great deal.

But the question is why? Why are three children any more stressful for mothers than two or say four?

Today Parents conducted a survey of more than 7000 U.S. mothers in 2013 and the results came back that mothers of three are far more stressed than mothers of one and two while mothers of four or more stress levels are actually lower. Some refer to it as the Duggar effect when you reach a certain amount of kids mothers are forced to not micromanage as much and their stress levels actually decrease.

The big question is what is stressing mothers out so much? Besides raising kind and well-rounded children mothers are often stressed about money, balancing home life with work life and their husbands. A lot of women feel like their husband is like having another child in the house but just bigger.

But the big underlying stress for mothers comes within. 75 percent of mothers in the survey say they are their hardest critic and put massive amounts of pressure on themselves. Mothers today are striving for perfection driven from judgment they get from other mothers.

“Scary Mommy” creator and author of “Motherhood Comes Naturally (And Other Vicious Lies)” Jill Smokler has three kids herself and agrees it’s the most stressful number.

“Going from one to two was an easy, breezy transition. Two to three, everything was turned upside down. I did not feel like I had it together…just crossing the street and not being able to physically hold all their hands I found tremendously stressful.”

Mothers today are putting their kids before themselves more than ever. Forget your favorite hobby before you had kids or that book you used to read before going to bed. Now you’re reading your children’s favorite pick and you’re lucky if you even got a daily shower in.

Dr. Janet Taylor a psychiatrist in New York says mom stress is something she hears about daily in her practice. Taylor is a mother of four and agrees with the survey

Caterina Scorsone Honors Down Syndrome Awareness Month

Caterina Scorsone Shares Photos of Her Daughter In Honor of Down Syndrome Awareness Month

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month and in honor actress Caterina Scorsone went to her social media to share some pics of her adorable daughter Paloma Michaela.

The Grey’s Anatomy star is an advocate for Down Syndrome. Her 2-year-old daughter Paloma was born the chromosomal condition and the actress often uses her platform as a voice to educate the world on the condition.

The 36-year-old actress posted a series of photos via Instagram on Tuesday. Scorsone wrote that her hope is that the language of the condition changes and gushed about her daughter’s “beautiful” differences.

“October is Down syndrome awareness month. Here’s a little info,” Scorsone wrote. “1 in 700 babies is born with Down syndrome. Language is important. Parents don’t have a 1 in 700 ‘RISK’ of having a baby with Down syndrome.”

“Parents have a 1 in 700 CHANCE of having a baby with Down syndrome,” she continued. “Just like they have a 50 percent CHANCE of having a girl a 50 percent CHANCE of having a boy. (With some beautiful variations in there as well).”

The Grey’s actress concluded her post by reminding her listeners that it’s all in the language and to be kind when choosing the words you speak. “Differences are beautiful. Language changes how people think. Words are important.”

Caterina shared three photos of her sweet girl “Pippa” a nickname the actress often lovingly refers to her daughter as. In one of the shots, Paloma is a happy girl swinging on a swing set. In another picture the actress shared was a sister-sister moment between her eldest daughter Eliza, 6, helping her younger sister drink from her sippy cup.

This isn’t the first time the actress has voiced her support for Down Syndrome. Since welcoming her daughter in November 2016 the Canadian actress has been advocating for more public research funding for the chromosomal disorder.

She has also praised several brands including American Girl, Gerber, Anthropology and Tea Collection for incorporating children with Down Syndrome in their promotions, collections, and catalogs.

Caterina has referred to her daughter as a “blessing” and believes she was sent to her “to teach us how to love.”

Family first

A post shared by Meghan King Edmonds (@meghankedmonds) on

The 34-year-old TV personality wrote an honest and candid post revealing, “we’ve become complacent in our lives and have taken each other for granted.” Meghan went on to reveal this is she and Jim’s first vacation since before their eldest child Aspen was born well over two years ago.  “When I think about it, it doesn’t seem like it’s been that long – we’ll always have more time to do what we want.  But life is short and we are seizing the moment!” Edmonds wrote.

Like a lot of marriages, the mom of three admits that her marriage has taken a back seat to raising her children and the foundation of her marriage is suffering.

Meghan continued, “Our marriage needs it. We’ve had three babies in under two years.  We’re building a house, we’ve sold and moved homes numerous times, we’ve quit jobs and started new ones. We are constant fixtures in our marriage that are often ignored and we need shining and buffing.  We need US back… and the sad part is that we never even realized “we” were missing.”

Meghan King Edmonds admitted she is “anxious” about leaving her three kids behind in California but is looking forward to a romantic vacation with just she and her hubby. “Most of all I’m looking forward to hanging out with my husband and not worrying about when the babies need to eat next or who has gas or why one hasn’t pooped.”

Edmonds realizes that not everyone is able to pick up and fly to Mexico for some R&R. She suggested a couple savvy options to her fans that can still benefit you and your spouse that desperately need some alone time but can’t afford a vacation. Meghan suggests, “a staycation at a local hotel or a very special date like a picnic in the park without cell phones.”

Edmonds ended her blog post by encouraging all the fellow mamas out there to “nourish yourself in whatever way you need. Whatever you can do, just do it, your marriage and former self will thank you a thousand times over.”
