Valentine's Laziness

The last 2 years wasn't all that great. You know, something about being pregnant & then having 11 month old triplets kills the mood, haha. This year was different. It started w/ roses & a big box from Victoria's Secret. I can't tell you the last time I got something from VS! Gooooooo Todd! I got Todd a cool retro Star Wars shirt cuz he's all in to that. Ok, so am I.

I even managed to lay down & nap w/ my honey. If you know anything about me, you know I'm not a napper. I don't nap. Can't do it, won't do it. That is what the night is for, sleeping. Call me a type a or a control freak, what ever your preference is. Daytime is for wake time. SOOOOO, for me to have laid down on the couch w/ Todd was very much a good surprise for him. Unfortunately, the kids didn't like the idea of mommy laying down & promptly decided that it would be time to NOT nap & scream instead.

So, we did what any other normal family would do. Cuddle puddle on the couch!

The kids also got Valentine's robes from Grandma Donna & Papap Bill. I've got to say that Sofi & Ian absolutely LOVE their robes. Gabi did too but she didn't insist on wearing it after she got her PJs on. Sofi & Ian DID. By the way, I finally did bath night ALONE. Todd was out running errands & I had to buckle down & get the kids washed. Not too bad. It was a quick bath though.

Here is the trio sitting on the couch downstairs watching Sid the Science Kid & drinking their milk before bedtime (we had to come downstairs b/c the DVD player broke upstairs).

After the kids went to bed, Todd grilled some yummy steak! What a wonderful day!

My name is Abigail Pogrebin; I'm an identical twin and former 60 Minutes producer who just published a book about twins called "One and the Same." I think any parent of twins will find much to chew on and maybe some guidance as to how to dodge pitfalls of doubleness. I'd love to speak to you about the possibility of a book giveaway, review and/or author Q&A. My email is,

How in the WORLD do you get your trio to watch TV like that? Mine watch it (standing) for about 2 minutes, then they're off and running to do something else!
