Happy birthday, triplets

Shark, Squirrel and Tiger, I have thought of many words of advice to impart to you on this monumental day, the day you actually have lived ten years on this planet.

I probably will express those careful thoughts. Mostly while you tut, roll your eyes and toss your head. But I like to think that it is a mama's role to drip feed her words of wisdom, and I hope we are living together a lot longer yet, which will give me plenty of time to impart my ancient knowledge on why you should not wear that skirt out of this house.

So just for today, I will simply say, I love you, and Happy Birthday.




You must have done something right already, because I never did sell you for medical experiments.

I wonder how it felt in the beginning - when you knew and slowly realited you actually had not one baby but three. Well, as I keep telling you, you must have been doing a good job, seeing your girls have grown and prospered. Your input is amazing - I always marvel at all the excursions you make, all the fun in teaching you all four share! Please one day write a book, Grit! Just publish your blog. Have a lovely day, all of you!
