Triplets Meeting Triplets

Yesterday we were on our daily family walk and saw a huge group of kids sitting in someone’s front yard. Both Todd and I were wondering what they were doing? It was a peaceful gathering, no signs of trouble. Then all the sudden 2 girls start running towards us and say “Are they triplets?!?!” I didn’t know whether to jump in front of the stroller or what because I was certain they were just excited about seeing babies, right? Wrong.

The 2 girls were both triplets. Get this; they weren’t from the SAME group of triplet siblings either. They were both from DIFFERENT SETS! Each girl had 2 brothers in their sets, the opposite of what we have. They were so excited to meet the kids and we were excited to meet not 1 but 2 girls from different sets.

Turns out that the big group of kids sitting on the lawn were celebrating that they were now high school freshmen. How cute! The girls are 14 yrs old and I wish I had listened better to what their names were. DARN! Oddly enough, as we were sitting there talking to them, one of the moms pulled up in her car. I do remember her name, Barbara. She not only had her trips which were her 1st set of kids but she also had 2 more singletons after the fact.

We ended up talking to her for a good 10 minutes. I gave her my contact info and am hoping to have the 2 girls come over and play with the kids one day, maybe go swimming all together. How fun! To top it off, both sets of triplets live in the same subdivision (have to add that our subdivision is not small).

Sorry, no pics today. Yesterday was very busy. I’ll have to blog about that tomorrow.

  • Okay when I first read this post I thought uh huh two sets of triplets… I thought they were pulling one over on you. When my sister and I were teens, when we went out in public I used to have fun with it. We used to tell people we were Penelope and Calliope and make all kinds of stuff up just for kicks. So my first thoughts were I am not so sure about this but then when you said you met the mom I just thought this is freaky weird. Like what kind of water do they have in your area? I would ask if I could have some of it but I really really only want ONE more. Not that I don’t just love looking at your triplet pics but I just like to LOOK. LOL.

  • Wow – large or not, that is kind of incredible odds to have so many triplets living so near each other! Pretty awesome though, and I ca only imagine how cool it was to see older trips, sort of a “hey, it won’t be so bad!” when they are all crabby or testing boundaries.

  • That’s really cool!

  • Patty ~ Yep, what are the odds? I was ready to run the other direction. BTW, totally understand only wanting to have 1 at a time.
