There Are No Words...


I can't put into words what this stroller means to me. I received this today from a very dear friend. She has sextuplets and was ready to pass it on to another family. Rob is out of town for a few days, so needless to say, I put the thing together myself during nap time. This was the first time I have ever done anything with the kids by myself. The freedom is indescribable. This feeling can only be understood by other moms of multiples. The short walk we took this evening rejuvenated me more than any free time I have had. Just having the ability to do something and have control of the munchkins is great. I can't thank Kate and her family enough for this gift.

As in the famous Kate????

You will LOVE it! Any day above 50 I get us outta this house and out into the great outdoors! Welcome Indiana Spring! We also had ours donated from another multiple family, so I know the sense of gratitude you must have! An amazing blessing! Enjoy!

Em,

I think you had Kate's heart back in the beginning before your little critters were even born.

I'm glad she passed it your way ... what freedom for you, and the kiddo's will just love it!

Now if we see you strolling down the highway to Wal-Mart .. we'll know you REALLY love it! Ha ~

Crystal and I love watching her show. When one of the little kids does something bad Crystal will say "He's being a bad boy. He needs a butt popp'n." She can really relate to it cause the little kids are right @ her age. That's soooo cool she gave that to you. It'd be really neat if she mention ya'll sometime in her show...(hint, hint if Kate reads this). Have fun w/the stroller!!!

Really, as in Jon & Kate plus 8? You must answer! :) How cool!
I only had a two year old when I had a newborn and I remember the feeling when I got a double stroller. So I can't imagine your feeling!
I love reading your blog. You are such a wonderful mom and it just shines through your pages.
Take care,
MJ
