Until this weekend the babies have never spent the night anywhere but a hospital room or at home. Matt had to work Friday night and had to go out of town Saturday so I called up one of my best bud’s Jac Tubre. Turns out her hubby had to go out of town for work as well so we planned a Get-Together. The closer it got time to get packed the more nervous I got. Can I do this? Can I travel with 5 kids by myself? Am I crazy? Some of my Quad Momma Sisters talked me closer to the not going side and then a few more said GO, it will be fun, if anyone will understand your kids being crazy and cranky another Quad Mom will. I also knew Jac wouldn’t hate me forever if my kids were complete monsters.
As it turned out the trip there wasn’t too bad. We didn’t even have to pull off the interstate to let HN use the portable potty I had for the car. (Yes, I have to pack a potty, what else am I supposed to do, send her in the gas station alone?) When we arrived in Baton Rouge we were welcomed by some smiling Tubre faces!!! The kids did great together until right around bedtime and then it was very apparent all 8 children needed some sleep. The night went great! All 9 kids slept great and we started Saturday on a good note! Jac and I were either stupid, brave or crazy, maybe all 3 and we took the kids to the mall! Talk about some funny looks!
When we came home from the mall the kiddos took naps and we waited for Kami Lambe and her quads to come over. 13 children, 3 moms, 1 house! WOW!!!
After Kami left Jac and I fed my 5, bathed them and we loaded up and headed East. The trip was a blast and I’m way more confident about traveling now!
Thanks Jac, for having us and thanks, Kami, for coming to play with us! The big boys playing!
