Third Time’s Charm

We originally said we wanted three kids.  We got three all at once.  So then we had three more.  Most of their birthdates are divisible by three.  All of our kids are about 3 years apart, except for the triplets who are 30 seconds apart.  The triplets were three months early, and they spent three months in the NICU.  We had three bottle babies and three breastfed babies, usually weaned at 3 years.  None of them potty-trained before age 3.

We’ve lived in three houses since starting our family.  Since buying our current house, which has three official bedrooms, we’ve had three vans.  We usually have three cats around the house, along with three main computers.  The kids have been through three playgrounds, and the current playground has three swing attachments.  We’re on our third refrigerator, our third dishwasher, our third microwave, even our third master bed since having kids, too.

The only year the triplets went to government school together was for third grade.

Brian and I dated for almost exactly three years before getting married.  We lived in three different cities together before having kids.

We have a lot of threes around here.  Did I miss any?
