Penitentiary Break Out

I can't believe I'm going to share these pictures but if you really want to know what it's like with triplets you have to see it. I always said that I would never buy my kids a million toys that just sit around and never get played with but things don't always turn out the way you imagined so the boys do have a million toys but they all get played with! The poor guys stay home all day and on top of that they spend most of their time in one room so we are constantly looking for things to keep them occupied and stimulated. Normally we have their toys separated into bins that are stored in the closet and just play with one bin at a time and rotate things in and out all day but on this day I just let the boys go hog wild.

Here you can see the jumperoos and baby chairs strategically placed in front of the fireplace. Also note the grey Pound Puppy in the bottom left. That was mine when I was little and it is probably the only childhood toy I will be able to share with my boys. If we had a girl she would have got one sweet Barbie Dream House and Cadillac!

Babies gone wild!
Why would they want to get out of this nice playroom that Casey put together for them?

Yes, we have a world map for the boys to look at. They can already point to Australia. Ivy League here they come!
Now that you have seen their beautiful playroom lets talk about what is not in there anymore. They no longer get to have the picnic table due to Isaac the mover pushing it up against the baby gate and narrowly escaping and because they liked to flip it over and play on it upside down which always resulted in tears. Also the storage bench in gone because they figured out how it opened and would all get in together - again resulting in tears. And last but not least, the slide is now in my living room. You've seen the pictures of the slide on it's side but recently the boys managed to get it upside down! Later slide! This prison allows supervised visits with the slide though:)
