Two posts in two days! Scary, I know. But this one just had to be told. And it's a short one ;-)
This morning, the boys and I were on our way to school. Alec noticed a sign in the back window of the car ahead of us.

'Holy!' he said. 'Triplets!'
'What's a triplet?' asked Adam.
I guess we've never had a 'multiple-birth' conversation.
'It's when you have three kids at the same time.' replied Alec. Then he re-thought that answer. 'Well, not really at the SAME time, they usually come a minute or so after each other. Right Mom?'
I told him that was about right. They will usually be a couple/few minutes apart.
Adam got really quiet. Thinking. All of a sudden, just when I thought the conversation was over and forgotten, he says in all seriousness...
'Wow... she must have a REALLY big Vagina!'
For a split second, I had no reply to that. It was another one of those 'mouthful of coffee - meet my windshield' moments.
Apparently he missed the part of the conversation where we said, 'One at a time!!!'
