The kids

In an instant I went from a mother of two to a mother of six. Suddenly I was hearing "mommy" in surround sound. I am the proud owner of 9 year old triplets ( not really, but I do have three 9 year olds) , an 8 year old , 6 year old, and a very cute ,but bossy 4 year old. I don't have all the kids ALL the time. There are weekends that we have 6, 4, 2, or, no kids at all. it's been very interesting meshing all their very different personalities into our small house in west valley and now into our even smaller house in west Jordan.

Ethan (9) is a very dramatic kid. He worries a lot about a lot of silly things. He is also very smart.

Miranda ( 9){ bottom picture , in goggles} likes to be the mom. She also has quite a little temper and doesn't mind showing it. She loves soccer and playing with her dad.

Keander ( 9) likes to role play and take charge of all the games. He's a tender kid and wears his emotions on his sleeve.

Gabi ( 8) laughs like a chipmunk. She also likes to play mother but is pushy about it. She's sweet and cuddly.

Collin ( 6) is funny. He doesn't even have to try. He was born on April 1st. it's in his make up. He loves HOT WHEELS and has a stubborn streak that could stop a train.

Brylea (4) knows she's cute and uses that to her advantage. She picks up the traits of the other kids like a chameleon. She stays awake way past midnight coloring and drawing in books.

When we have all 6 here , needless to say our house is VERY full. They all have to be reminded how much we love them and that they need to love each other and that " no, hitting each other and calling each other names is not OK!" Some days it's harder than others , but I love all my kids. Even when their feet stink.
