This blog is from a father of triplets in Vilnius, Lithuania who are turning three in April 2014: Dovydas (an equivalent of David), Jokūbas (an equivalent of Jacob) and Elzė (a germanized form of Elisabeth). After three wonderful years I decided it is about the time to share my experience which those blessed to have two or more kids at once might find useful.
My approach in writing this blog will be similar to notes by a manager running a project. Our project has two principal managers (the Mother and I) and two deputy managers (the grandmothers). There are more helpers, but not a single nanny! My wife and I are fortunate to have agreed on how we should run the project from the very beginning. This concord allowed us to sleep sound at night from two months onwards, for my wife to shine in beauty and for us both to scratch heads when yet another bypasser was expressing her awe and condolences. ‘It must be so hard – but at least all at once!’ Hell no, we are fine! The rewards are so high in comparison to the effort. If you handle things right!
