This is a new one...

Just when I thought I had heard every over used line that us triplet Mom's have to endure, a new one surfaces.

I took the kids to the waterpark yesterday and it was a great time. The kids have been in the water just about every day this month so they are beautifully sunkissed. I noticed this lady watching me and finally she broke down and came over to ask if they were triplets. After being drilled about my life, our finances, and some other random stuff she asks, "Did you birth them?". I was a bit confused and wondered if she was really asking what I thought she was asking? She clarified...I know it's a really personal question but, are you their Mother? She had just observed me running around like a maniac saying "stay with Mommy" a hundred or so times trying to keep them safe in the water...am I their Mother?

I know, I know they are just to adorable to be my kids, that must be it. I actually answered her but I was thinking to myself... No, I was about 8 months pregnant and I woke up one day and these three sleeping babies miraculously appeared in cribs so I assumed they were mine.....

Now I really have been asked EVERY silly question.

I had to laugh at your story. Everywhere we go, we get comments… some nice, some rude, some just plain weird. I am sure you can relate. A couple of months ago, Martina and I were in JC Penney purchasing something. Martina was pushing the double stroller and I was pushing the single stroller. The salesperson commented how thin Martina was after having twins. Martina corrected the salesperson and said that they were actually triplets and I was the mom and she was the au pair. The salesperson then turned to me and said, “So… she had the babies for you?” Instead of going into a long, complicated fertility lesson on what a surrogate was and another explanation on what an au pair was… I simply explained that I was the mom and Martina was the nanny.

Take care,
Kelley and the girls
