Daylight Savings Time is…

Yes, #DST hit the Triplet household hard. Two things: Oh Gretchen woke up SWINGING Sunday morning. Yes, she stayed up late (two nights in a row actually) and MAN was she having NOTHING Sunday morning. Picking fight, after fight. Thank goodness the weather was pleasant and she got outside… And, the DAY after… Theodore, my … Continue reading

So We Hugged it Out

I have had my hands full with this one. Lately everything has been setting her off which means that she takes is out on us — mostly me,  mostly Olena — with whining and crying fits. Screaming fits. SCREAM-ING! This morning, all was well, until she had to get ready for school. I’ve talked to … Continue reading

A Winning Weekend

Each year we have attempted to go to the Great Swamp Conservancy’s Halloween party. Each year we have different challenges to deal with. The first year we went, for example, it proved to be way too much for Theo and he retreated to the van while the girls and daddy went through the various exhibits … Continue reading

Been Stung, and Survived

Yesterday, while the kiddos and I were out playing in the backyard, I made the careless mistake of putting my flip-flops on, instead of my sneakers.

Not because it’s earth-shattering, but, as a special needs parent when your kid does something spectacular you like to shout it from the mountain. Well, he’s got two pretty smart sisters who should also be praised for all … Continue reading

First Crush? Or just really good kid?

The other day when I dropped the trio off at daycare I helped Theo out of his layers (God forbid no one helps The Boss out of his winter hat, gloves, boots, scarf and jacket immediately?!!) as most of the teachers were busy helping other kids and getting breakfast ready. That’s when I saw a … Continue reading

Dental Bonding — It’s All Good

Teeth. Let me tell you, I’ve had it with you. But, now, it’s my teeth that are causing problems. Years of grinding unknowingly (since high school — anxiety? Duh) and even with a mouth guard at night (again, since high school) is doing a number of my “mother of pearls.” As a mom of triplicates, … Continue reading
