How do you do it?!

Since the day Dylan, Jake and Emma were born I get stopped whenever I'm out with them, especially with the triple stroller, from random people who want to ask me a million questions. Usually they are out of curiosity and fascination, but every now and then you get a rude and obnoxious comment.  I could probably write a whole blog just about the comments I've gotten... I'll save that for another day!  However the most common question is "How do you do it?!" 
I never know how to respond to this. I always say "I just do it". And that is essentially what I do. Of course it's not this easy, it never is when your have 3 kids at the same time, but that's exactly what I do because I don't know how to do it any differently, nor would I want to!
One of the methods to my madness is creating lots of structured activities.  Most of my friends joke that they would like to send their kids to me for preschool because they know I love to do fun, engaging and even messy activities on a daily basis.  What they don't realize is that if I don't do structured activities D, J & E will fight all morning long, most likely over the same toy that we happen to have 3 of, which clearly does not matter to them in that moment...  So this way they are engaged and happy and I can keep my sanity and enjoy a cup of coffee!
I may have the background of being an elementary school teacher, but I'm so grateful for Pinterest for helping me find so many great new ideas! 
Over the next few days I'll show you some of our favorite activities we do to keep us busy over here!  
Here are some pictures of Dylan, Jake and Emma in action during some of these activities. Keep looking for details of these to come soon!
