How to put triplets to bed in 3 easy steps.

Occasionally there are articles featured on websites explaining the 100 steps to getting your child to bed…to brush teeth…to get dressed…name the task, you can probably find one somewhere. These lists are always hilarious and I feel somewhat exhausted just reading them. But, with triplets, I learned quick to be more of a “No, not …

The Down And Dirty Of Motherhood

Have you ever had just one of those days? I try to keep lighthearted most of the time on this blog but gosh, sometimes I have a really bad day. Thus my story begins at the grocery store this past Tuesday. Thankfully it wasn’t busy because the kids were like crazed flying monkeys, running everywhere…including, …

My Brilliant Idea

You know what the best part of parenting is? Bedtime. Sound harsh? Maybe. Do I always feel like that? Of course not. But today I did. Today was one of those days when any level of noise, even the lowest level, was like fingernails on a chalk board to me. And the kids picked today …

Come on in, please have a seat.

TODAY, we had our very first ever parent/teacher conference for the triplets. It’s just 4 year preschool, but I will admit to being just a tad “on edge” before the meeting.

Pee and Fire

Yep, that about sums up my morning. Mornings are still a tad hectic, now that the trips are in preschool. I still don’t have a good flow to get us all out of the house seamlessly. There has always been some sort of unexpected event that throws me off my game no matter how much I …

I WISH

I wish I hadn’t spent my money on a cute lamp for the boy’s room. Why do I even bother…

The very first graduation – sniff

I didn’t think there would be a graduation from the trio’s School Readiness Play Group…but there was. It was cute, too – let me tell ya! Hopefully, they will be going to 4 year old preschool this fall. We will know for sure the middle of July. Say prayers…because they need it, and I could …

I don’t know how you do it.

I get that a lot. When they were babies and everything was “schedule, schedule, schedule”, my response to this statement was ” You just do.” And that is true – I just did. Things had to be done, and I did them. Fast forward to age 3 1/2. Now when people say “I don’t know …
