In the Army... (VIDEO)

We have our first official word...well I guess the first true word..."Dog"...all three have been saying mama and dada for a while now but I have been working with Rogue (and the others but only Rogue is getting it) on different things...she will hide her face and play peek a boo...she will show how big she is when you ask "How big are you?"...she will also wave bye bye...she can drink from a sippy cup...but today she crawled over to Daisy (our Boxer) and touched her and said "Dog", then looked back at me and YELLED "DOG" to make sure I heard her...as Daisy got up and walked away I said "Dog" and she reached out towards Daisy and said it again "Dog." I am one happy dada...now for some crawling from our lil lady Jade...she hasn't made it too her knees to crawl just yet so she does a perfect army crawl...enjoy the video...

Dirty Laundry :-)

I was up paying some bills the other day when I heard the wife holler up to me to come down quick...as I came down the stairs this was what I saw...Jade had used the laundry basket to help herself into a standing position and proceeded to crawl her way into the laundry basket...it was soooo funny. Enjoy pictures of the event...

No Money More Problems...

Sheesh whoever said money doesn't make you happy hasn't been broke. Life has run into a few potholes in the last few months and I think I might see the light at the end of the tunnel...I know we aren't in this boat alone...life is like a roller coaster that we are all on...just throw your hands in the air and go with it. We took a big kick in the pants when we got a letter from our insurance company telling us they weren't going to cover anymore doctor wellness visits from Nov. '09 Until the girls turn one...the insurance company didn't tell us until December so we now have three doctor visit bills...YEAH...did I ever mention I HATE insurance companies... A couple quotes to live by in these financially draining times...

Living like no one else so later I can live like no one else...Dave Ramsey what a genius.

Broke is only temporary, poor is a state of mind...from a fortune cookie I got right after we heard we were having triplets.

Jiffy Screwed...ENJOY

Well I got a funny story...bear with me I am a little windy on this one but every detail is pertinent to the over all story...this past week I was being manly and decided to change the oil in the cars...I don't want to learn how to do it myself so as my father taught me "Just pay the man." So like I have always done I took my car to Jiffy Lube. Early this week I took the van in and had the oil done...they did their usual stuff of trying to get you to buy their over priced filters and wiper blades...they told me I needed to change the cabin filter and it would cost about $32 I quickly shot that down...I ran to Auto Zone and found out the filter cost $11.99...glad I didn't get screwed. Well the true humorous part came in when I took the wife's car in to get its oil changed...I went into the waiting area grabbed the paper (yup I dun learned how to read) when I sat down I overheard the head guy of Jiffy Lube running through his spiel to sell this and that to the lady in the waiting area...he kept pushing these "NEW" "Special" "Scientific" "Long-Lasting" wiper blade for $23 per blade...he also claimed there was no mark up on the blades what so ever because they cost so much (The blades in question are Rain-X blades...keep that in mind for later in the story). She was hesitant but succumbed to the pressure he was pushing and said "Yeah that's fine just do it." As soon as he headed back into the garage she looked at me and said "Did I just get screwed?" I softly said "Yeah I believe so. I never buy any of the extra stuff because of the outrageous mark ups they have on it." I then proceeded to tell her the story of the Minivan I had just had a couple days earlier...she was a little miffed but sucked it up and paid for them and left. (I didn't know this but they must have the waiting area miked because there is no way anyone could have heard me say anything to that lady) Then it was my turn to pay for my oil change ONLY...when in came the head guy of the shop a little loose at the lip at me...throwing swear words at me saying "I was stealing his livelihood" when I tell people that you can buy the stuff cheaper elsewhere...(Edited version) He ranted on about how it was Bull Donkey that I even opened my mouth...he then called me a "Flipping liar" about the price of the filter I found at auto zone...he then told me I should "stick to my own Stuff" because "I don't know anything about Flipping cars" and then he was like "How would you like it if ..." he trailed off and looked me right in the eyes and said "What do you do for a living?" thinking he was gonna throw this how would you like it if I blah blah blah crap. I paused...sadly I didn't quite know how to say it...never really been asked in that manner...I looked at him and said "I stay home and raise my kids." (I paused) He looks at me with a little smirk...I then proceed to say "Who happen to be triplets." (haha just kicked him in the face and the pause was timed perfectly) That shut him right up...he softly said "Really? How old?" His demeanor changed DRASTICALLY...I then said "Ten and a half months". Once the word months left my mouth he became VERY apologetic...sorry this and sorry that...he became a whole new person...he truly felt bad for going off on me and repeatedly apologized. I saw he was vulnerable so I laid some salt into his already gaping wound by adding in "Here's the kicker...they are ALL girls." He has a look of fear fall upon his face and muttered "I am so sorry for everything I said...I have two girls 9 and 11...they truly give me a run for my money...your job is and will be harder than mine has and will ever be so again I apologize for everything." I left there with a smile from EAR to EAR. I love the look on peoples face when they find out I stay home and the fact that they are triplets I care for...but the icing on the cake is the look on peoples face when they find out they are all girls. Now back to the wiper blade thing...I knew the wife's car needed new wiper blades on her car so I ran over to Walmart...walked over to the auto department...low and behold they had the SAME rain-X blades but for only $8.95-$11.95 per blade...no mark up my butt so I bought the inexpensive $4.95 per blade blade's I know I know I splurged but the $3.95 blades were sold out...next time cheap blade's next time...

Hope you enjoyed that little story...have a great day.

That face is for you Jiffy Boob man...

We're Back!!!!

Yeah sorry its been awhile...I needed a few days off...the holidays and all wore me and the girls out. I finally got to leave the house with the girls for the first time in almost a month (besides the holiday visits...they don't count because they aren't relaxing)...we are blessed to live about 5 minutes from the fourth largest mall in IL...so we headed over there and we all went for a long walk in the mall...in that same 24hr period we got about a foot of snow, glad I got out when I did. The girls are funny when snow is falling...watching them in their carriers and have their mouths open and their tongues out trying to catch snow flakes...its VERY funny.
-
Couple quick updates...all the girls now have teeth...Rogue has 4...Nix has 2...and Jade has 1...
