Aruba in April


Greetings from the white beaches of Aruba!  

After 2 days of exhausting all-out potty training with the quads, Brad and I were completely THROUGH!  We turned our boys over to the Potty Whisperer Service and set out for a relaxing tropical retreat!  Although, we miss the boys tremendously; they are in wonderful hands, and our families are just a phone call away.  And how nice will it be to return to 4 completely potty trained and independent boys!!! Did I mention they also deep clean your house while you’re away?

We left “behind” the potty chairs and wipes and  have been enjoying horseback riding on the beach, romantic candlelight dinners, and soaking up this tropical paradise. 


Minus Brad’s sunburn and heavy appetite, things couldn’t be “dreamier”!

Oh Wait….

Did I say dream?

It IS APRIL FOOLS, You know!

Reality calls…I think I have a potty (or 4) to clean!

    I saw and thought, "wait, WHAT?!?", then saw the Potty Whisperer and was completely baffled. The funny link set me straight. Good joke! Well done. 🙂


  18. Wow…you got me with the Potty Whisperer link! I thought, hmmm – that's pretty interesting to leave your kids and come back and have them trained! Or I thought that might have been a code word for the grandparents. 🙂 I continued to skim through, at least thinking you were somehow in a tropical paradise. Bwahahaha!!!

    In my defense, it's time to go get the girlies up from their afternoon nap, and I wasn't fully concentrating. 🙂 Nice to see you from the Multiples and More site!

    You totally had me until I saw the photos. I was thinking –> good for them, they SOOO deserve some time away — and how awesome to have someone else do the potty training!

    Too funny.
