Today my "babies" turned 5. I can't say that I rember the last 5 years, but I know there was lots of laughter, a lot of poop (a lot!), too many loads of laundry to count, major milestones met, and lots of tears (both theirs and mine).
Along with some books and new leapster games, my little super heros got real superhero capes from an internet friend who also has triplet boys. On one side of each cape is a Batman cape, on the other side is Flash, Captain America, and Superman. Trey loved his so much that he thinks that he is Batman. I heard giggling from their room after bedtime tonight and when I came upstairs, he was standing on his head. His explination was that Batman sleeps upside down. It took some convincing, but after explaining that Batman only slept upsidedown when he was Batman, not when he was Bruce Wayne, did Trey finally get into bed.
We're going to be celebrating all weekend with our Triplet groups Fall festival (where the Justice League will premier), seeing the Children's Theater production of How I became a Pirate, and dinner at Chuck E Cheese. We've managed to avoid the mouse for five years, but the boys have been asking to go for months. Maybe we can go this time and not again for five more years? Right?

This morning at church, during announcements, Ryan raised his hand. And our pastor thought it was a good idea to hand him the microphone. Before I could stop him, Ryan gave this tiny bit of wisdome, "You shouldn't eat too many bananas becaue they make it hard to poop. But if you eat your vegetables, than your poop is soft. Oh and grapes too." Having kids is awesome!

The past few years we've made a pretty big deal about Halloween and gone as a family theme. This year I almost had every convinced to go as Phineas and Ferb characters, but Superhero's swooped in to save the day again.
After lots of debate among the little lawyers in our house that I wish I would have recorded, the finally agreed to be Batman characters. Here is their choice for mommy:
So now we are going as the Justice Legue - Batman, Flash, Superman, Green Lantern, and Supergirl.

The other day I was putting all three boys in the bath. Ryan was the first one in and I asked him about the temperature of the water. He told me first that it was just right until he sat down. With a completely straight face, looks up to me with his big blue eyes and said, "Mom, according to my penis, the water is too hot! When the water is too cold, it goes in and it's too hot so it's sticking out." I have no idea how to respond to something like that.

We have been lucky with the boys. They did not take diapers off and smear them on the wall, we don't have little strippers (most of the time), there is some toy breaking, but not bad and they have never ever put things in the toilet until last night...
I thought there was a "floater" that was only half flushed because they don't like to flush. After trying to get it to go down and doing my business, I flushed a second time. The water was almost out of the bowl! Yelling for Eric to get the plunger since all things with the "throne" are his job I start to panic that it's going to really run over. Just in time, it slowly starts to drain and Eric decides it's ok and flushes again. I heard a yell, "I need a towel, I need a towel!" Running in, the water was once again about to overflow! The plunger made a rattling sound and after several fishing attempts, a small boulder is pulled out!
When asked this morning, Evan tells us that he did it because he was done playing and it was stinky. The new rule in our house is pee, poop, and five sheets of toilet paper only and I hope that we do not have any more fishing expeditions that may require a plumber.
