When You're With 2-Year-Old Triplets. . .

When you're with 2-year-old triplets and want to take pictures of them, there are a couple things that will NEVER happen.

1. Everyone In the Same Spot- Just give up now. Even if you manage to get them all together, your picture will probably either turn out blurry

or one of them will leave before you snap a picture (who knew they could be so fast?!)

2. Eyes on the Camera- They have an attention span of maybe 2 seconds and when that time is up, off they go (leaving you with a blurry picture. . . again)

Their Momma's advice on the matter? Take pictures while they are watching TV (it is just about the only thing that can hold their attention)

But, if you keep your eyes open and camera ready, you may capture some of their cuteness crystal clear!

A Piece of the Past

Today, while cleaning in our loft, we found a story Youngest Sister made up when she was four. Here it is-

The Sunshiney Day 
Once upon a time, Lena is going to a ball because there's going to be a ball inside the story. Manilla doesn't get to go to the ball because she's not fancy enough. Kareena gets to go. Melooady is the baby. Maleena is the mom and she's going to stay with the baby. Maleenady gets to go. The big sister is Liana. Bunny is Kareena too and can definitely not go because no pets allowed. Once upon a time they were getting ready to go but big sister was going to take them. Manilla and pet not allowed. Walking and walking until they get there dancing and dancing. But then sun going down. Got on pajamas. Got on pajamas and go to sleep in their beds. Turned off lights. Eat breakfast in morning. Had to get ready fast. So then ate breakfast eating away. Sun going up again brighter and brighter and decided to dance together. Chuggy Choo Choo Dancing. Dancing along but the sun going down again. Going to sleep again.

A childrens book author to be? We'll see. . . :) ~Megan
