Monday Mop Report #2

Potty training triplets is disgusting. I know that it has nothing to do with intelligence, but I’m starting to feel like my kiddos are not as smart as I thought they were. I know that’s a terrible thing to say, but come on; get with it! I’m so tired…

St. Vincent NICU Reunion 2015

St. Vincent NICU Reunion

A Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a scary place to spend any time. The sounds and the uncertainty are terrifying. But, it’s also a place where love grows. In our case, we not only fell deeply in love with three tiny babies, but we also fell in love with…

Thursday Night Thoughts

Here are my Thursday Night Thoughts. This week has been more than hectic. I am more than exhausted. Sorry for the crappy intro. It’ll be better next week. one | sick kids My kids have had this cough, snotty, wheezy (thanks to premature lungs) thing going on since Friday.…

Triplet

A Triplet Introduction | Sadie

When I was pregnant Sadie was always the calm, cool, and collected one. She moved but didn’t kick hard like her brother did. And she wasn’t a troublemaker (I say that with nothing but love) like her sister. Being Baby C she had the most room in my belly and we…

Monday Mop Report #1

I’m starting a new weekly blog series along with my Thursday Night Thoughts I began last week. The title may be a bit confusing until you hear what this series is all about. Before kids I was a self diagnosed OCD cleaning, everything has a proper place, there are…

Triplets

A Triplet Introduction | Jase

Triplets. I dreamed of 2 boys and a girl. I mean, boys are easier than girls right?! And if I was going to have 3 at once I needed raising these peas to be as easy as possible. “Baby A is a girl, Baby B is a girl, and…

4-H Fair Fun

4-H. Before I met my husband I didn’t know it existed. Call me naive. Call me ignorant. Call me whatever. I grew up in a small town in Southern Illinois where, thinking back now, I’m sure there was is 4-H. I just didn’t know anyone that was a member.…

Triplet Introduction

A Triplet Introduction | Henley

There are so many risks with a triplet pregnancy. The worst being losing one or all of the babies. I came close. I had a “normal” triplet pregnancy until I was 23 weeks. There was a troublemaker already! And she’s been a rebel ever since! Her name is Henley.…

I Burnt the Quesadilla 

It’s no secret that I hate cooking. Before we had kids Matt and I ate out A LOT! And when I did cook it was mostly hot dogs and mac and cheese. Occasionally I classed it up a bit and made something in the crock pot. Now that we…

Potty Training Triplets | Day Two

Potty training triplets is so freaking hard (in my whiniest voice). I give up. This is too stressful for this overwhelmed mom. It’s only day two, but my hair is starting to fall out! Read about day one! It’s potty training hell. I won’t go over the stats with you,…

Potty Training Triplets | Day One

This year my New Year’s resolutions included starting this blog…✔️ and having the kids potty trained ASAP. The latter hasn’t happened as quickly as I hoped. It’s not them. They are ready. They’ve been casually using the potty for some time now. Honestly, it’s me…as usual. Potty training, ugh.…

4th of July

The 4th of July | Family, Fun, and Fear

While the 4th of July makes you “ooh and ahh” it makes me want to run and hide. I don’t know when it started, but my fear of fireworks is real. Call it a phobia. Call me crazy. My anxious, nervous self cannot handle it. I am terrified. The Things…

It’s a Long Road | Boys and Baseball

*I posted this last week on my personal Facebook page before I started The Triplet Farm blog. I thought it was fitting to post here as well. Enjoy.  Tonight my husband took our son to his first baseball game. Three years ago I wasn’t sure that this would ever…

Triplet Sleep | We Did it All Wrong

Triplet sleep. We did it all wrong. I will admit this now. And it was all my fault. I didn’t want them to cry or to think I was abandoning them. I didn’t want them to think we didn’t love them. I wanted to be a co-sleeping mom forever.…
