We stopped by the park today on our way home from the library (trying out new theory: if we're not home, we won't make it messy). And while the kids were climbing around I saw a woman with a throng of small children. I thought to myself, "She must be watching some of her neighbor kids, too."
Then she came over to me and asked me about my twins. She said "I have identical twins, too. And they have a sister, so they're triplets."
Triplets! Can you imagine? They were 2. And then there was a big brother who was 4.
The first thing I said was, "Did you even leave the house when they were babies?" She laughed and said, "No. And now the only place I can go is Costco." A kindred spirit.
I don't know how she handles even more babies than I've got. Bless her. Maybe it will help to keep her in mind while my kids are stomping on ritz crackers in the kitchen, because she has even more cracker stompers than I do.
