We have had so many ridiculous parenting moments that seem so rare that we just have to laugh. We had four in diapers, simultaneously! I remember when the littles (second set of twins) were first born and the bigs (first set of twins) had just turned three, I had a running joke of keeping track of how many #2 diapers I had to do in how short of a time. Ridiculous, right!? What other parents (besides of multiples) would ever change 3 poopy diapers in 5 minutes?! So I had a name for it... I would say, "3 in 5” and laugh. CRAZY!! Since becoming a parent, I've always tried to look beyond the craziness of the moment, I try to look at the big picture. I tell myself, this is just a stage. I won't be changing their 3 diapers in a row or whatever the frustration is, forever.
Our family likes to laugh and we will always keep laughing about how ridiculous some of our experiences have been and are. One of my favorite funny memories, that my family will never forget, is when the bigs teamed up on me while I was pregnant with the littles!
