Q & A with Z & T

Yesterday was one of those days. It flew by...and not necessarily in a good way. I was a tad frustrated: I felt like everyone was a little sick with a little something, but no one had the same "something". Zoe's getting over whatever it was..."random 2 hour sore throat, headache, 18 hour one red eye, & tiredness". Ty has "green nose, sleeping only cough & puffy red non-pussy eyes". Cole has "smoker's cough". Eli has "even after nebulizer wheezing". And Ava has "drippy nose". Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I so want to bring them all into the doctor's office and say., "Go to town. Work 'em all up!"

PLUS, it was the night before Zoe's library day and OF COURSE her library books disappeared. We looked high and low and couldn't find them. SO frustrating! I know we just saw them the other day. How can they disappear?

So last night, I scooped myself a nice big bowl of Breyer's Mint Chip Ice Cream and topped it with a good amount of maraschino cherries. (Shhhhhh...don't remind me that it's January and I'm supposed to be dieting and trying to lose weight. Didn't you hear me, IT WAS ONE OF THOSE DAYS!) I sat down on the couch to watch the harsh entertainment of the American Idol auditions, and I popped open my laptop to read through my favorite blogs!

One of my blogdictions posted about her day at home with 2 of 3 triplets home sick. She had a great idea and I'm going to steal it (hope that's okay JMom). She asked her triplets all the same questions. Then, without any edits, she typed out their answers. So I'm going to try it! Maybe it'll help me keep life in perspective.

Ok, so Ty wants to be Derek or Jorge....He's definetly got Yankee blood! I wonder where he got that from since you guys are such great fans? I love the the answers that both kids gave you. You can tell how very much they love you and are loved by both you and Shane. And you're so funny...ice cream, cherries and laptop. Way to go and get away from it all. Calgon, take me away! You're doing an awesome job with those kids. And cheer up, they won't always ALL be sick at the same time. God's just teaching you to be patient and by the sounds you're learning very well.

I LOVE this (and the questions you added regarding name change are a great idea)! Just wanted you to know I am praying for you today. (I Thessalonians) :-)

Great idea! So fun! Hope everyone's starting to feel better. I missed Ty on Wed.

Salli, We missed you guys on Wednesday too. It was all my fault. I TOTALLY overslept. It's not like you can "rush out of the house" with 3 babies and Ty. If he went any slower, he'd be in reverse!
