This is what going for a walk looks like. Having multiple babies requires enormous strollers. And several of them. There’s really no way around it (believe me, we’ve tried. That’s why we have so many strollers)! We have seven by my current count. Plus a Choo-Choo Wagon. (See below). Number of babies times two, plus one. Isn’t that the standard equation for stroller count?
This is what swinging looks like. We’ve gotten used to always taking up at LEAST two swings at the park, and we are prepared for the questions and comments that accompany some of the sideways glances we get when we take up more than one family’s fair share of the swinging real estate. But let’s be honest. We take up more than one family’s fair share of a lot of things at this point: sidewalk space, elevator room, laundry machines, pediatrician’s appointments…and we elicit a lot of questions and comments wherever we go!
This is what 7AM looks like. There’s really no point in putting away the toys.
This is what picnicking in the park looks like.
Someone is bound to sneak off and get into trouble.
This is what helping out in the kitchen looks like:
We place an emphasis on teamwork. For better or for worse.
Teamwork in the nursery.
Teamwork in the play area.
Teamwork all over the place.
This is what naptime looks like. For some of us.
This is what reading looks like. It helps to have extra large books.
This is what going for a run with Mom looks like. It only takes three runs before everyone gets a turn!
This is what road tripping looks like. AFTER we’ve unpacked the minivan, of course.
And this is what the packing list looks like:
And a small portion of the contents of our van:
This is what playing the piano looks like. Does anyone know a third harmony to “Heart and Soul”?
This is what brushing our teeth looks like.
And this is what the start to summer looks like.
More adventures to come!
