Welcome to Quad-Mart

I stress this is only ONE section of our “store”…but after re-stocking and organizing the other night after a diaper run to Target I thought you might want a peek into our garage (aka Quad-Mart).

Top Shelf: Cases of Diapers
2nd Shelf: Packages of Diapers and Wipes
3rd Shelf: Juice and Baby Food for the Week
4th Shelf: Cases of Paper Towel
Bottom Shelf: Laundry Detergent

Nuts! I know….what’s even more INSANE is how quickly it will all disappear!

    Isn’t it amazing how quickly it all goes? It seemed like every time I was ‘stocked up’ on baby food – a few days later, I’d need to get more – and that was just with 2! Its such a relief to have them eating all table foods now! AND having them feed themselves! Hope your boys are learning that too and gaining independence! Here’s a question for you…how many loads of laundry do you do with the 4 boys?

    Ohhh Jen,
    HE HE HE lol… it looks similar to our “store!” I LOVE it! I hesitate to say this.. but … it only get’s worse!!!!!! I do at least 6 loads a day and we pretty much only shop at Costco now.

    Yes, table food and independence are grrrreat.. but so is the mess! I must admit I really do like it better though. I wasn’t big on baby food. I started feeding our kids table food around 10 months and never turned back. They have been feeding themselves for over a year. It’s really nice.

    We will start the dreaded potty training this summer. AHHHHHH! But hey.. a life without diapers.. ahhh those will be the days. I bet we will save so much money that I’ll be able to hop on a plane and come help YOU for a week!!! Now, that would be fun.

    Anyway.. LOVE LOVE LOVE the latest blog. Great reality check!!! Kiss those beautiful boys for me!

    XOXO

    Take my advice — don’t introduce them to steak!!!! OMG, my three boys, a 7 yr old and 2 3yr old id twins are almost always hungry. Stay with the Goldfish, lol. Yes, it’s cool they can ask for more, clean their plates, and put away the dishes — but OMG can they eat!!!!!!! Trust me.

    Even more sad that in no time… there will be no more reminders to remind you that you have a young baby. My baby is now 6, and Id do anything to have diapers again…. something about taking care of a baby is just a precious time, and worth the ridiculus cost.:)
    Hang in there!!
    You are so organized……..let us see more organizated closets, etc in the near future.
    Oh, and a question that you can either answer or stock on the shelf for later.:) Do your two boys still nap together? Just curious!!
    OH, one more thing… the other day I had to slip to Indy, and wanted to veer off the interstate and find you and give you a big hug and see those kiddos. Im a big Murray fan!!

    I love it! You are so organized! And, it is insane at how quickly it all goes. Are you going to be at the next MOMs function? I can bring you Parenting mag then! Hope so…maybe we could ride together?

    Just wait, I have four kids but my one 17 year old son is currently eating us out of house and home. I hope your boys don’t have his appetite when they grow up. Although I am so thankful to not having to buy diapers anymore.

    I only have twins, so I know how many diapers, etc. we go through. I can only imagine your laundry 🙂

    I do appreciate how neat and organized you are, you really have to be being a mom of multiples 🙂

    Looks familiar! I’ve got one shelf in the attic and one in the garage and I still feel like we’re restocking it all of the time!

    Jen — it was super good to see you, and though I wanted to talk more and hear more about life with the boys, I’m so thankful I can read all about it right here!

    Did you enjoy your seminars? I really appreciated them all, but the one about Reaching out to Women with Infertility was especially great. Good food for thought, you know? Glad to go to it with you!

    Tell Sally hi and that we missed her much!

    Love, Gret

    Jen, I read your blog all the time by have never left a note, but after seeing your store I thought you should know that if you turn your wipes up side down till time to use them all the liquid will be at the top wipe when open and will drain to keep them all wet to the bottom. The bottom ones will not all be real wet when you get to the bottom of the box.
