Triplet Mom's Retreat





On Friday afternoon I made a jailbreak trip up to the mountains with 11 other mothers of multiples. We had a great time. How could we possibly not have fun.... between the 12 of us we have 47 children, none of whom came with us on this trip!


We spent our time lounging around in our "family pants", eating, drinking, relaxing, and just plain enjoying the company of others who know the things we are going through. Never mind the fact that I had never even met any of these other ladies in real life before Friday night! I find it fascinating that having triplets is enough in common to make for such an enjoyable weekend away with previous total strangers... whom I now consider friends. The whole weekend went off without a hitch, and not a one of us was distraught over not having plates to fix, children to feed, diapers to change, disputes to referee, you get the picture...


I was barely able to trudge through the end of last week with all the teething, sickness, and general fussiness, but now I am feeling totally refreshed and ready to face another week. I had wonderful, wonderful little reasons to hurry home this morning...
Thank you girls for a much needed break!!!
