You know you're a mom to three toddlers when...

  • your hair hasn't been properly dried or styled in months.

  • the only time you wear make-up is if you have a few spare minutes in the car.

  • you can't get the theme song to Sesame Street out of your head.

  • you find yourself spelling half of your conversations with your husband. "Should we let them watch B-A-B-Y E-I-N-S-T-E-I-N?"

  • you only know the weather forecast if you specifically make a point to watch it and by the next day, you've already forgotten what the weather is supposed to be like.

  • you sometimes duck into the bathroom to eat a snack so little eyes won't see you.

  • you pray for sleep past six o'clock in the morning.

  • you find bits of food all over your house.

  • every night you ask your husband, "Is tonight bath night or was that last night?"

  • you open a can of diet Pepsi (preferably the cherry-tainted kind), take a few sips, become involved in some toddler crisis and then go open another can of diet Pepsi, take a few sips and come across the first can, unfinished and abandoned.

  • you refuse to buy new clothes because whatever you wear usually ends up peed on, pooped on, thrown up on, snot wiped on or colored on.

  • you can fall asleep in two minutes.
  • whenever you venture out to a public venue with all three, someone inevitably calls out, "Looks like ya gotcha hands full!"

Dead on! We need to start spelling more things and I totally have eaten snacks in the bathroom. I'm selfish like that ;)

Haha! I just asked my husband last night 'is it bath night?' and the weather forecast is soooo true! Great post!!

Hi

No my girls never showed any signs of TTTS. In fact, their birth weights were very similar. Allie (Baby A) weighed 5.3 and Anna and Em both weighed 4.13.
