Triplet Princes and a Princess

Triplet Princes and a Princess

Our journey to hearing with Cormac while living our life with triplet boys and a baby girl.

Cormac found this game on called Ladybug Festival. It is cute and is a listening game. It describes objects and the player has to find what they are looking for in the game. I wanted to pass it along to practice their listening skills.

Other things keeping us busy this winter are a few toys we got from Santa who shops at Discovery Toys. You can only buy them online or through a consultant. All the toys are educational but fun at the same time. Our favorites right now are Motorworks, Busy Bugs, Playful Patterns and Whiz Kids. Whiz kids says it's for children 7 and older but I can't imagine 7 year olds being challenged by the game.

This game can be played anywhere and is great in the car. It gives categories and the child has to name things you ask. It really makes them use their brains and it's great for vocabulary. There were a few words the boys didn't know but that what it's all about. For example, one of the cards said "Name a beverage". The boys didn't know that word. "Name something electronic" was another we didn't know. But every time we do the cards they come up with different ideas. One of the cards said "Name something adults do" and Cormac said "Adults go to work". Thought that was a great answer. Ciaran said "Adults drink soda".

Play Doh has been an amazing indoor activity. When I tell you they play with it for hours at a time I am not exaggerating. As I type this the three of them are at the table playing Play Doh and making up the most amazing games. I am in awe of the active imaginations these children possess. The detail of the games the come up with and the amount of energy the use playing them is amazing. So many people comment on how well the boys play together. Sure, they fight, but for the most part they just entertain each other.

I brought them to the gym to babysitting three times since the new year (Calleigh can finally go to babysitting so i am back at the gym!) and two different babysitters said they can't believe how well they play, share and how their little minds are always working.

It gets me thinking about the relationship they share. I know their "tripletness" play a part in their bond. But on the other hand they don't HAVE to play together all day long. They choose to be together. They can be apart and do great with other kids but they enjoy their time together. I hope it remains this way for their entire lives. I will say, Colin is the most attached to the other two. Once in a while if they are having a day when they are all not playing nice I will tell them to all go to different rooms to play alone for a while. Colin hates this. He says "No, I want to play with my brothers and starts to cry if I say I am going to split them up. That said, at school he is fine. They don't always sit next to each other. They have their own friends. They have their own likes and dislikes. They are each their own person but are happy to be part of Team Lawrence!

As a profound deaf since birth with hearing aids, this was my favorite toy growing up:

I didn't really understand it though, but just listening to it was very hypnotising, like listening to musics.

I've always liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to good of fair-minded dissipate all at once staring at it as a configuration of catharsis. In a way, it helps me with meditation, to reduce stress and strain and well-grounded deem in the air nothing. That's why since I was a kid, a substitute alternatively of dolls and cars I've always at ease more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, dulcet boxes etc. So I was most delighted when I base the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Inconsiderable Presentation Laser Crown Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from answerable to the Toys section. It's like a tuneful thump, a spinning head, and a radiance divulge all rolled into one. Which is great diversion! The gyroscope transfer whirl after around a minute. The laser explanation pretension with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a very incomparable bauble that my friends get also been most amused with.

My dogs are also beautiful outr?about the laser gyroscope I got from They always follow the gyroscope as it spins, although at principal they kept barking at the laser light accompany, and also because it produces music. But after they got employed it, they've stopped barking but due watch over following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also pretty amused by it. On occasion it's moral to possess fun toys about the ancestry so that you can leave the diminutive on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you open to prepare foodstuffs or sock changed. The gyroscope is inseparable such toy with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a intent plot on it, and produces a gegenschein accompany with red, downcast, and common colours. Pit oneself against a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser luminosity show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that great but allowable enough to entertain any chic visitor to the house. The gyroscope is red and black, making it look extraordinarily coolth, and measure macho with that dragon imprint.

The music light inform gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also acclimatized this gyroscope to surprise my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy thing of decorating the hostelry cell with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as rise so that the laser brighten register produces a fresh effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the light effects created a slightly mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, by the going, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my non-performance shopping site for all gifts and ideas in compensation emotional occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser go down playing gyroscope can perhaps be a talented Christmas give-away for the toddler or neutral the humour! Alternatively, the gyroscope can absolutely be a polite addition to the established Christmas decorations. I can take it as given placing it near the Christmas tree and perhaps spinning it when guests arrive in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my subject thus far again!
