1, 2, 3 Play Dates!

This week was hectic – with work, training and play dates!

Monday we had a play date with “J” who is a few days older than my munchkins – his grandpa was ITU Age Group World Champion this year so lots of good sporting genes although athletics during this date comprised of crawling on the floor and standing at an activity center.

Wednesday we had a play date with “S & S” – twins born a few weeks after my guys.  Their mom is super creative – she has stations set up with activities for them to do – there is a tent, a crawling tunnel, a sushi bar, you name it she has it and most of it she made herself!  My trio seemed to be in awe of everything to do at her house and it gave me some ideas on what to do at mine.

Friday we had a play date with “C, A, & G” – triplets who are almost 18 months old.  I was a little weary going into this play date because of the age difference between our two sets of triplets – but everyone seemed to get a long great!  They are such well behaved little girls and didn’t mind my guys playing with all of their stuff.

The Meat Locker

After receiving a door jumper from a friend of mine, I quickly realized how much my guys absolutely love the thing.  I also really like the way they can be put up and taken down easily and they don’t take up much room when not being used.  This is a major advantage over the traditional activity centers and jumpers which have taken over my living room.  So, I quickly decided to get two more and now have a jumperoo station at the end of the hall which we affectionately call the meat locker.  Now everyone can bounce at the same time and it gives me (or whomever is watching the munchkins) 15 minutes of not chasing after a baby.

The Next Gerber Baby?

For fun (and because it’s a free activity I can do with the munchkins) I sent the babies pics into a modeling agency called Generation in NYC. They liked their look and decided to send us out! Since I used to work in the ad industry in NYC it’s a way for me to stay somewhat connected to one of my passions while also incorporating the babies. This week we had three auditions – and one was even for Gerber! I don’t think we made the cut…but it was fun to take a trip into the city, make new friends and laugh in front of the camera.
