Godzilla Meets Tripletmania

Last weekend we got together with the last five couples in our local multiples group to have triplets. There were 12 adults, 18 babies from 3 months old to 9 months old, and four older kids ages 2 to 4.

Nope, it's not Babies R Us, just a small glimpse of the gear at Tripletmania!

Sam, Isaac and Alex are the oldest by three months, so no one else's children are truly mobile yet, though some are starting to roll over.

When we walked in and landed our big boys amongst the little ones it was like Godzilla storming the Japanese. Sam, Isaac and Alex all took off in different directions, crawling over little people as they made beelines to the nearest piece of furniture so they could stand up.

The look of panic on the other parents' faces at the idea of what was to come was priceless! I have no doubt they will all take it in stride, just as we did, because mobility does come gradually, thank heavens!

We had times when there were no crying babies, but around 7 p.m., as bedtime neared, everyone started to melt down. Of course, that's when we remembered that we should take some video and pictures before everyone left, so brace yourself for some wailing here!

No wonder the most popular spot in the house was right next to the drinks table!

Yes, I went home and promptly googled "baby gate" and "play Pen". Great seeing you all :)

We're so sad we had to miss it! My kids would have been madly rolling over all those babies, kinda like yours were trying to crawl on top of them. :)
