About me

I’m Farrah Ritter and as the name of my blog suggests- a Mom of Three. The ‘under’ is because I couldn’t call it ‘TheThreeUnderTwo’ which was what they were when I started my blog in 2010. Today I have three boys ages 8, 6 & 6. We’ve all grown and changed a bit over the past few years- including this website. I used to write about my overwhelmed parenting moments- but now it’s more than that.

Besides talking about myself, my guys and expat life in the Netherlands- I discuss some of the where we go on our family travels across Europe. I also like to make suggestions on where to stay. Readers of mine know that if I don’t mention it- I DON’T recommend it! We sure have had some of those too. Mostly I just want to encourage people to GO and see their world.

The Ritter Family-0025

What’s ‘The Three Under’ all about? We’re expats in the Netherlands. We are originally from Michigan but moved to South Carolina after we were married in 2006. We moved here in early November of 2012 and are thrilled to experience a completely new adventure as an expat family living in the small village of Oisterwijk. My blog is a documentation of our life as a twins + 1 family living in Europe, trips and experiences that we endure (ha!) together. I write for our friends and relatives back home and people like us with little kids who enjoy traveling.

Our life is crazy and not what we expected- but it’s exciting and we look forward to what is ahead.
