Twins AND Triplets!

We moved to this small town from DFW when the boys were just 4 months old and it has been a huge adjustment to say the least! I love my life and feel so thankful that I get to be a stay at home mom. However, there are times that it can be really lonely. The majority of my friends in DFW are stay at home moms so I often think about the fun things we could be doing together with our children and all of the conveniences if we still lived there. I also know that I could greatly benefit from participating in a "Moms of Multiples Club" and connecting with other moms of twins, but unfortunately, there is not one here in this town. I have made 2 very special friends here but they both work full time. So, I have been praying that I could meet a stay at home mom that I had a lot in common with. Well, God answered my prayer! Amanda works out at the gym with the same personal trainer as me. She moved here from DFW a few years ago and totally understands the life of a "mom of multiples" even better than me because she has TRIPLETS! Maybe we can start our own "Moms of Multiples Club!" We were finally able to coordinate our schedules today and got together at my house for lunch and play time. Her triplet boys (Grayson, Andrus and Liam)are 9 months older than Bryce and Drew. As you can imagine, it was totally crazy with 5 toddler boys, but they all got along really well and we had lots of fun! Thankfully, Jimmy was here to lend an extra set of hands and laughter!
There's nothing sweeter than the laughter and smiles of children!
