I remember our first TPOMBA picnic... the boys were 3 months old approximately, and we were totally overwhelmed. It was all we could do to pack everything up and get to the picnic area. And we didn't last long because the boys grew cranky and tired, and it seemed the easiest thing was to soon pack them back into their carseats and get them to sleep in the car! But just being amongst others who also had twins and more seemed to help a little, as we saw how manageable the future looked. (Now we are that future, haha! How ironic, I thought, as I chatted with other POMs carting and wheeling around the tiniest little 5-month-old babies yesterday, while my own two jumped merrily in the bouncy castle and stood in line for balloons, lol!)
It was nice, once again, to be surrounded by sets of two and three babies, toddlers and older children, and I marveled that good things come in 2s and 3s.... But as I sit here next to Simon at a local cafe, writing this blog while he enjoys his apple juice and a game on the iPod (Alex is at home, cleaning the apartment with Trevor!), I must say, nice things also come in singles. :)
Here's to loving our multiples... in ALL their configurations!
