I can not believe they turned five.





It still amazes me every day that I have triplets, what is even more amazing is that I survived the first five years. That is right my babies are five years old and will soon be graduating from preschool and off to big school as they say.

Over the years there have been many ups and downs, virus's and colds but we have made it this far, it can only be up hill from here.

So what advice would I give to new moms, well things do not really get easier, they change, the challenges change and the battles change. You go from being exhausted from lack of sleep to chasing toddlers around the house. Next thing you know they are asking you a million questions and you are always on the go. From Gymnastics to ball practice, there just seems to always be somewhere to go.

So in five years we have had many trips to the ER, one broken arm and I have even gotten away with out children or husband once or twice. (mommy time is much needed)

Take help where you can get it and as for those dumb comments and questions, they do end, or become less frequent as they get older. Smile and know that this too
shall pass.

Enjoy the small things.

I am so glad I found this blog. Baby 5 brought baby 6 with her when she entered the world and she hasn't stopped telling when to come and go yet. They are turning 3 soon. I love finding other moms of multiples.

This is wonderful. I could spend hours looking at all the pictures. This post is wonderful too. Great advice for all mothers. I need to give myself more "mommy time". I am a little jealous. I always wanted more children but it just wasn't in the cards. BIG SIGH. I will just have to come here for my baby fix.

Beautiful children.

Appears, we're in the same boat. My trips turned five in June and are heading to Kindergarten in a couple weeks! The first five years went so fast. Those milestones (bottles, walking, talking, potty training, etc.) which seemed like such monumental obstacles have come and gone.........I'm going to add more triplet stuff to my blog in the future.

Oh, I am so glad I found your site! I have a very good friend - and fellow teacher - who had triplets (two girls, one boy) a little over a year ago. I'm sending her your link now because I know she'll just adore it!

I imagine that first day of "big school" is going to be tough on you ... I've been an elementary school teacher for 10 years now, and that first day for kindergarteners is always a sight to see :)

Your children are beautiful! And you are my hero. I can't handle my two and they are five years apart. LOL!

Michelle said...

I love the basket picture...so darling! My husband has twin boys who will soon be turning SEVEN....so hard to believe! The challenges definitely don't go away, they just change! But we take the good with the bad and do the best we can.

Helene said...

You are so right....things never really get easier. They just get different. That's the best way to put it. Each stage has its own highs and lows, I'm finding.

Priscila said...
