Meet the Parents

Hello! That’s us in the photo above. We are Sean and Rebecca-the super blessed parents of quadruplets born at 27 weeks, 6 days, on February 23rd, 2011!
Welcome to our blogging world!
Our blog is centered around the ups and downs of raising our quadruplets and how our sudden increase in family size has affected everyday life. As you read, you will find tips for streamlining life with multiples, how my idea of motherhood has been turned on its head, and how our marriage has been challenged as we juggle four kids the same age. It quite the hilarious adventure most days!
But this certainly isn’t a blog just for and about multiples! Anyone who has had a toddler will identify with our kids’ crazy antics, and motherhood and marriage can be tough roads to navigate no matter how many kids you have (either one at a time or all at once!). Sometimes it’s just nice to know that the craziness of life is experienced by others too! And yes, you will find posts on crafts and food as well! I do stick with the simple and quick though, so if you are looking for elaborate crafts, you might be a little disappointed.
I guess you could say that this is more of a lifestyle blog with a multiples twist!
One thing is very important: I try really hard to be transparent and authentic about our lives. It isn’t always golden over here, and that does make its way to the blog on occasion! There is such a sense of camaraderie and community when we open up…for us and for you! We also welcome any questions about our family, because, let’s face it, it is a unique situation.  So don’t be shy! You won’t know unless you ask!
So now that you know a little more about what you’ll find in our little section of the blogging world, where should you start?

So…who are you people??
It’s really not all that exciting who we are. We were just a normal couple, each working a job, and loving life. Now we are just a normal couple with one less job, four more kids, and really loving life!
But seriously, that doesn’t tell us anything.
Oh, you want to know that stuff…okay…
Sean is a Payroll Analyst. As near as I (Rebecca) can gather, he trouble shoots the payroll systems at Sprint. When he isn’t working, he most loves sitting on the floor with the kiddos and having them crawl all over him. All of our kids, but especially the girls, absolutely love their Daddy and always clamor for his attention! Sean loves reading when he can find a quiet minute to do so. His favorite types of books to read are comic books, Star Wars books, or books on marriage and family. He also takes care of the family finances, keeps track of car maintenance, does half of the laundry, and makes sure that if Cardinals baseball is on TV, that we are sitting down to watch it!
Rebecca is a stay-at-home mom. This has always been a dream job for her…she was just surprised that quadruplets are what made it a reality! Her whole day revolves around the kids and associated kid activities such as changing diapers, stepping around toys on the floor, and repeatedly sweeping up crumbs. She absolutely loves what she does and the snuggles on the couch are the best! When she can get two arms free at the same time, she enjoys blogging and freelance writing. It’s a creative outlet for her and helps to keep her sane amidst the chaos. You can find a list of articles she has written by heading here
We’ve been married since March 15th, 2008. Way back when we got married, we had a wedding website (it seems like so long ago these days!). Click here if you want to read about how we met and see photos of the picnic where Sean proposed to Rebecca!

Hey Bec and Sean? You may be wondering why I have two users following you, but the reason why is because I have a new E-Mail account.

Your family sounds wonderful! I admire your ability to keep up with four small children and a blog as well. Looks like you are doing a great job of both, and I can't wait to meet you at BBC-St. Louis! See you there!
