Thanks For Telling Us

This past Sunday we received a huge compliment about the kids. The Sunday School teachers told us that all 3 were so well behaved, listened to the lesson and were really good about sharing. I'm sure the sharing comes from being a multiple. They don't have a choice.

Little Helpers

What a great bunch of helpers the kids are becoming. We've been letting them help with small tasks they can handle. Things like picking up their toys, putting small clothes items in the dryer, helping carry dirty dishes and silverware from one parent to another after a meal as we load the dishwasher, etc. They seem to really enjoy it and we don't mind the extra help.

4D Images Of Multiples In The Womb

Here's an interesting article on how 4D ultrasound is revealing more about multiples in the womb.

A Long Time Of Illness

It seems like it's been a while since we've all been this sick. Little Man started off, followed by Blondie, me and then Squeaky and the father. Squeaky and the father are just about over their colds now. It's rough when everyone gets sick and you're trying to look after each other.

18 Month Appointment

Today is the 18 month appointment with the pediatrician. It's probably going to be a wild time. They're supposed to get more immunizations. What will make the visit more difficult is the fact that all are sick and haven't had much sleep for the past week.

I Can't Wait To See This

The National Geographic channel is doing on show on multiples in the womb.

Here's a short description of the show - "On January 14 at 8pm, National Geographic will return to the womb with In the Womb: Multiples. The special will use 4d imagery to and CGI effects to show how twins and other multiple birth siblings develop bonds while in utero, and how those bonds continue after they're born."

I can't wait to see this when it comes on.

Parental Lessons?

On New Years Day, a television station aired 24 hours of The Andy Griffith Show. We were able to watch some of the episodes. It was fun to watch how Andy dealt with the situations involving his son, Opie. We tried to glean some tips that might be helpful for us down the road with the kids. Who knows, some of the wisdom from a simpler time just might be appropriate for parents today.

Cousin Itt

Remember Cousin Itt from the Addams Family show? When Blondie starts talking gibberish fast, that's exactly who she sounds like. It's funny to listen to.

Vacation With No Illness

What a nice time we had with the father here on Christmas vacation. It's the first time he's taken vacation this year and hasn't gotten sick because one of the kids has been sick. Let's hope being well continues for a while.
