They should be dead by now

Ecclesiastes 3:12 Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Triplets can get into whatever they want.  I am outnumbered.  Period.  End of story.

Hey, let’s climb up the chair and over the railing…I think we can use this blanket as a parachute and bust out of this jail!!

Every ring has it’s leader…in our home, Crazy Man has the job covered.  I honestly can’t think of one thing he has NOT gotten into.  Remember the recent Yukon story?  That is nothing new…in fact, that is mild.

There was the time when they were still tiny little things and I made the mistake of going potty without hauling 3 toddlers to the bathroom with me…he discovered my butcher block and was standing on the counter holding the butcher knife when I rounded the corner.

There was the time we found a bucket of poop and pee in our garage.  Don’t ask.

There was the time he broke, oh who am I kidding – he has broken everything but himself!!

There was the time all my candy disappeared…oh, that is pretty much daily.  We now seriously keep it under lock and key.

There was the time he set the new standard in the ER by getting his middle finger stuck in the hole of his drum set cymbal.  Everyone there thought it was very funny.  We just shrugged it off as a normal afternoon in his life, others just got involved this time.

He tried to start a fire in his garbage can just last night.  Just to see if he could.

Yep, he is our Crazy Man, middle name: Fearless.  We love him like crazy.  We are bonded in a special way because we cant let him out of our sight.  Ever.  Until he is 40.  Or we hand him over to a wife…and she can deal with it.

Oh yeah, she has had a couple run-in’s with the law as well…this is her most famous.

    What a cute post. I like how you say you have to watch him until you hand him over to his wife! Your daughter has a shameful look on her face in that photo! Stopping by from Mama Kat’s.

    LMAO! That’s so funny …

    I don’t have triplets, so I don’t quite *get* the difficulty of multiples, but I have three and I’m outnumbered as well. It’s danger. I should clone myself.

    My son once got his finger stuck in the floor vent at our old house. It took 10 minutes of talking calmly to him and about 4 tablespoons of butter, but we got it out.

      We tried cold water to shrink it, oile to lube it, and a few other things but when it turned white and he couldn’t feel me grab it anymore, I figured we better go get the thing off. The oil made the doc’s job much harder, he said. 🙂 They had to call in maintanance for tools.
