Kids' reactions to the news that we're having triplets...

We've heard some pretty funny little anecdotes about friends of ours telling their young children that we are having triplets.  I work with a little girl whose mom told her 3 year old boy about three babies at one time and the face he made sounded hilarious and we both said we wished she'd had a camera.  And then within a week we got this video via email from our friend Sarah in Seattle of her telling her daughter Rachel.  Rachel was a typical peer in the preschool at Lakeside so she knows Michelle and me from there and she also came to our house once or twice.  She LOVES dogs and really likes Humphrey so prior to telling her and starting this video, Sarah reminded Rachel who we are by talking about Humphrey.  So she was a little confused at first thinking Humphrey was having babies!  But the middle part is absolutely hilarious! 

And I think it would be pretty funny if we could manage to stage a photo where it looked like Humphrey was holding a baby bottle to help feed one of the babies. =)  Now THAT would be a good trick to teach Humphrey! =)


  1. oh my gosh, that's AWESOME!

  2. "That's going to be a headache!" Hahahahahaha! From the mouths of babes!

    My favorite quote about twins: "There are two things in life for which we are never truly prepared: twins." ~Josh Billings

    I think it will be even more appropriate for triplets: "There are three things in life for which we are never truly prepared: triplets."

    1. : ) and for those of you who don't know, Gina is the mother of twins. And HER mother was Mari's babysitter when Mari was a baby/toddler in Honolulu.

  3. I am Mari's mom. The other day I was sitting on the grass with cute twin 5th grade girls. They were asking me about my "girls" and knew that I have a little granddaughter. They asked about my other girl and asked if she isn't going to have any babies. (I wasn't about to get into Michelle and the two moms part...) I said, "Well, you two are twins, right?" They agreed with big smiles.

    I said she is going to have triplets this fall. One of them exclaimed. "THREE babies at one time!? OMG! THAT is going to be a problem!" I said yes, that everyone was going to be very busy.


We love reading everyone's comments! Thanks for taking the time to comment!
