Time out!

DracuDominic got time out tonight. See, Dominic is a sensitive soul, a gentle child, a kind, loving little boy.

Unless your name is Ryan and you just stole the basketball.

Revenge- triplet style. One nasty chomp down on the back, through cotton, hard enough to leave a welt with teeth marks.

He better hope that Ryan never bites back since Ryan has the dental makings of a shark. Or as our pediatrician says, a tooth explosion in his mouth. Ryan, somehow, acquired too many teeth. Probably a well planned ploy to get extra money from the tooth fairy. But seriously, he has, from last count, 3 teeth too many. I have no idea what happened in there.

I better start saving for the braces.

Happy Birthday Drew!

What does any parent of triplets do on their birthday? Run. Hide. Seek adult environments.

After all, the trio got to go to a birthday party on Saturday for Tanner (mucho fun Dena!) and even though Ryan ran around making sure escaped ball pit balls were returned to their rightful place, they had a blast.

Today, for Drew's birthday- we ran away. Got pedicures and massages. And ate in a restaurant without having to look on the children's menu and did not have to cut food up into teeny tiny pieces. And it was still HOT when we ate it.

Good times that every birthday boy deserves.

On another note, I made the reservations for San Diego (check me out all on the ball!). I was even polite when after explaining to the agent that it was 2 adults and 3 children all the same age, born on the same day, all related, yada yada, he STILL proceeded to ask me if I was bring 2 pack and plays.

Yep, because one has to rotate and sleep in the truck.

The end.

fairy princess

I just realized I have not posted any pics from the 2 year birthday shoots. I could say it was because I have been in bed for 2 days with either a] food poisoning (because I want to blame Drew for trying to KILL me) or b] some nasty stomach virus (more realistic probable cause).

But considering they were done a month ago- chalk it up to laziness. These are one's we had taken of Aspen and Drew got into an argument with the manager over a coupon code (which, for those that know Drew- that is so not like him) and it made the whole experience even more memorable. Especially the part when Aspen started crying and Drew looked the guy straight in his eyes and says" See- now you made her cry" You really had to be there. It was a special family moment. Especially 6'4" Drew staring down 5' nothing photo dude.

Not quite Barry the Bee...

Perhaps the Bee Movie has taught the trio no fear of bugs.

I, on the other hand, still harbor huge anxiety attack inducing fears of bugs, especially bees.

We decided to put the kids in the pool so that they could float and watch Drew light fireworks and hopefully not catch palm trees on fire.

Dominic is sitting on the sun deck and grabs for what appears to be a lightening bug. Or some kind of bug- they are all creepy and crawly anyway- does it really matter?

Then creepy bug morphs into what appears to be a hornet.

What do I do? Scream like a mental patient and all but cannonball out of the pool and down the street. Dominic is trying to catch it, and gets stung.


But he took it much better then I did, and with a little bit of Benedryl and some kisses on his boo boo, took his wound like a champ.
