8 x 3 = 24
24 kids ranging from 6.5 months old to 27 months old. Oh. My. God.
The experience was incredible & for just a couple of hours, I felt like every other SAH mommy out there that goes to playgroups on a regular basis. Just call this one super sized. The playgroup started at about 9:30 & ended by 12:30. Just about 10:30, we had everyone in the house at the same time. Chaotic is a good way to describe it BUT fun & enjoyable! Sure, we had a couple of baby meltdowns but not enough to drive anyone to the brink of insanity. I think maybe next time I will serve wine instead of coffee, LOL!
I think that we all felt the same way. We were finally surrounded by other people that understood what it was like to be a mommy of 3 babies at one time. Please don't take this the wrong way but even w/ twins, you still have enough arms to go around. Once you pass that threshold, things are a bit different. You can grab 2 but what about the 3rd? Luckily we all helped one another. 2 mommies even fed their babies over here. No worries b/c other mommies helped w/ the feedings as well. It was an awesome show of teamwork!
The mommies that came were Carrie (Emma, Elizabeth, & Emily), Lynn (Tommy, Tabitha, & Zoe), Anna (Hudson, Tobin, & Skyler), Susan (Ava, Mia, & Andrew), Jennifer (Mollie, Elise, & Preston), Kerra (Hannah, Aiden, & Olivia), and Marie (Ava, Trevor, & Chloe) as well as ourselves.
There were only 3 sets of triplets at this moment.

Kerra's diaper bag was being enjoyed by many, especially Gabi & Ian.
These last 2 pictures show just how crowded it got in the living room! This was when all 24 kids were here along w/ 9 adults!
This is the real life of a mother of triplets.
