Top 5 Joys of Having Triplets

Good morning and HAPPY FRIDAY!

As everybody knows along with the good is the bad and yesterday was dreary, so I started with the bad.  However, it's Friday, it's Friday and a long weekend to boot, so today I'm writing about the great thing about being a mother to triplets, although admittedly it might just be the top 5 of being a mother to lots of kids.

5.  The knowledge that even as "an older mother," I am not too old to run around and enjoy every moment with my kids, because I know that I am lucy to have those moments.

4.  Three voices telling me that dinner is yucky...oh wait...that's not good.  It's so much better when they tell me that it's delicious and then eat everything.

3.  A chorus of giggles of when I sing and dance along with Beyonce, which makes me feel like a rockstar.

2.  Six arms to hug me every morning.

1.  Three sets up little lips to say, "I love you!" and give me a kiss.

***There are so many things to love about children.  I'd love to know what you'd put on your Top 5 list.

Here's a link to yesterday's blog, The Loneliness of Having Triplets

Here are links to chapter one:


  1. So many and so many great ones; where to start?:
    5 - instant family, as they say
    4 - that my three will always have a special bond and understanding and each other
    3 - watching all three interact, copy each other, and how each of the three develop their own personality (mine are 10 mo)
    2 - that my family and I are doing something unique and that amazes just about everyone, even parents of 4 and 5 kids and twins, and which isn't even that hard
    1 - the smiles and laughs, all in triplicate.

    Thanks for the post!

  2. Triplet Dad,
    I like your Top 5. I like that my family's unique too. I've always done this slightly outside the box.

    Happy Memoir Day Weekend,
