Playtime outside.

It's another day in the life of this mom and her three children. Even the difficult days are special- not that today was difficult. I am grateful for the hard days- grateful when they are over. Buh du dum!

Today we ventured outside. It was a bit chilly when the sun ducked behind the clouds. Otherwise, it was lovely. I keep the kids in pjs all day lately. We are not going anywhere so I decided to have one (really three) less battle(s). I've even taken them to the grocery this way. I figure people have to understand, right?

I brought out the umbrellas and here are a few videos and pictures from our playtime outside (in their pjs). Notice Savannah is wearing boy pjs but she loves "choo-choos" and begs for them!

Not sure why it was a good idea to lay inside the umbrella. Maybe they are trying to figure out the purpose of an umbrella!

They will play nice once in a while. Here is Savannah pushing Tristan in the stroller. Notice he is holding a bucket of chalk. The chalk enters his hands as soon as we go outside and does not leave his hands until we go in. He rarely draws with it. He just likes to hoard it all.

Sophia says umbrella!

Tristan saying hey to a few family members. Sorry Cindie. I should have left off aunt and he would have said it!

Savannah allowed a little camera time. She fell yesterday on the sidewalk and busted her lip open. She gave the word umbrella a good try!

This last picture was taken a few days ago. Savannah loves to dress up. Here she is in my pullover sweater.

My son - the make-up artist.

Tristan loves to mimic his mommy putting on make-up. He is getting better at putting it on. Today, he drew a mustache. I think I could send him out to apply make-up for special events. What do you think? Maybe he could get enough money to pay for the gallons of milk he drinks and the diapers that fill-up because of all the milk he drinks!

The girls hold hands and a few short clips of dancing.

We went to a park yesterday and I was behind at the van while Jason took all three across the street. I heard him ask Savannah to hold Sophia's hand. I was not the least bit confident that she would. Once again, they prove me wrong!

Just a few shots of the kids at play.

Here is Tristan dancing to a song we know- Shadow Dancing. It is so neat to see them realize their surroundings. They love their shadow. Tristan was last to dance but the first to love singing. I think I caught a little of that. It is a quick video. Sorry!

The cutest trash bandits ever!

I have given much thought to the idea that I am "lazy" as a parent. I have tossed it around and believe I have settled with the thought- I am not lazy; I am a momma to soon-to-be two year old triplets! I allow them more freedoms than I would have if I had only one child at this age - a decision that was made for my sanity. In preserving my sanity, there are some insane moments (moments I treasure, oddly enough). I hope you enjoy the insanity of this video! Of course, I was only able to capture the ending of their rampage through the trash. I am never quick enough!

This is not trash, by the way. Well, it is the recycling bin and we wash all the containers before throwing them in the bin. Sorry about the video quality and sound. Savannah mimics all our words now and she was repeating "triplets" and Sophia immediately started squealing, "Cheese mommy." They love the camera!
