The ever amusing adventures of a single Mom and her smart, funny, beautiful children
My Life in a Nut Shell
3 surgeries for Endometriosis, countless medications, and lots of difficult years trying to conceive. We put the medical stuff on hold and decided to work on being parents instead. In July of 2000 we were blessed beyond all measure with a phone call announcing the birth of our daughter, Megan. Megan's birth mother had given birth the day before and was leaving the hospital. We had no warning that Megan was coming. At 4:29 in the afternoon we were a couple, at 4:30 we were parents. Deciding that we wanted a sibling for Megan, we looked into all our options. This time insurance covered IVF. One round and we were blessed with triplets, Abigail, Brigid, and Caroline. Did you know that there is a 70% chance of divorce in families of Higher Order Multiples? Almost two years after the triplets were born my ex-husband and I separated and eventually divorced. During that time both my Mother and Father passed away from cancer. In February of 2007 my sister came to live with us to help out. In December of 2008 she had to leave so now it is me on my own with the girls. In February 2010, Lisa passed away and finally found her own Peace.

The Zoo (no not the one I live in)
It's been an incredibly busy week at work. No time for blogging. Friday evening finished out the week with a 10 1/2 work day so the goal last night was to treat my girls to a fun evening. That meant the World's Largest Halloween Party at the Louisville Zoo. Of course we got a late start but the girls were thrilled to find out that trick or treating could last until 9:30. That's right ladies and gents, 2 1/2 hours of trick or treating at the zoo after a 10+ hour work day. Geez. It was incredibly crowded but we had so much fun! Here's a little peek:

Caroline with attitude
Brigid as a Spanish dancer. Some days there are no words to describe this young lady. I'll let the picture do the talking.
