If you ask any mom with multiples she will tell you that somehow we grow eyes in the back of our heads. It just happens. Every sense you have is multiplied. I will admit that today Sydney and Ethan got me. They rarely beat me to anything, I am on top of every move they make. Before I go on with my story I will tell you my excuse for why they got me. Our bathroom door, you can tell where this is going, is warped. You have to pull the door knob really hard to make sure the door latches. We keep it closed at all times. My brother Lee came over this evening to help me out. He is 9 years old and a big help. Anyway, while the kids were eating dinner he had gone into the bathroom. I didn't think anything about it. After I finally got all the kids down from the table and their chairs wiped off we were rounding them up to take them outside. Ethan and Sydney were MIA. Then I heard it...laughing and splashing. As silly as it sounds, my first thought was that they were in the bathtub. Not thinking at the time that there isn't water in the tub. Yep, they were searching in my toilet for buried treasure. I was totally shocked. The first thing I did was tell Lee to watch them as I ran to find the camera. After all, they were already wet and what is another minute in the toilet. Ethan's face in the bottom picture is priceless. Doesn't he look so gulity! I'm sure some of you are thinking that I should have gotten them out right away and thrown them into the tub. Having quintuplets has taught me that it's better to laugh and let things go. If I stressed about everything they did I would have a heart attack. Instead. my first reaction to everything these days is, "Wait! I need to get my camera." This way, I never forget the funny things they do. So, I hope no one calls CPS on me because I promise I cleaned them off. But not until I got some cute pictures. Enjoy!
