Quad Q&A: "Funniest Comment About Quads?"
and "Funniest Mommy Brain Moment"

Here's Part 4 of our Q&A with the Quad Moms. Click here if you missed Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 or just keep scrolling down.

What's the funniest comment you've received about having quads?

  • Suz Steece - oh man...jeeeez...there are lots! umm..."quadruplets?...oh...so that's three, right?"

  • Jen Murray - We get "Do Quads Run In Your Family?" quite often, and I'm tempted to say, "Why, YES! I'm a quad, my husband is a quad, my great-great grandfather was a quad...we come from a LONG line of quads!"

  • Gen McNulty - Did you do this on purpose? Wow, triplets!

  • Mari Goerlich - "4 babies!? That's what happens when you take that fertilizer."
8. What's your funniest "mommy brain" moment (either while pregnant or since the babies arrived)?

  • Suz - oh man, there were a LOT! we quad moms had it really bad because there were FOUR babies in there sucking the oxygen out of the blood that was going to our brains!

    i guess, when i was pregnant it would have to be the time i flashed an entire waiting room of people! you know how when you are pregnant, your body is completely changing constantly--well i was completely oblivious to the draft i was feeling down below.

  • Jen - Probably remaking formula over and over, back in the severe sleep deprived days, because I would loose count of how many scoops I would put in each bottle. Counting to 3 has never been so difficult in my whole life!

  • Gen - Oh MY GOD. If you only knew!! I literally can't remember my own name some days. let alone other important things. My husband finally got me a PDA and a laptop to help me put my brain on the computer. I've been a mess since having the kids. If I don't put it down in writing...it's gone...gone gone gone gone! I've said and done too many embarrassing things to remember.

  • Mari - After the babies were born, a representative from the hospital records department came into the room to get all of the names for the babies' birth certificates. I couldn't remember the middle names we chose so I had to look on our blog. I was so embarrassed! I'll blame it on the pain meds:)

Makes me feel goofy for not being able to keep up with my one kid! Just knowing quad mommies survive and have enough time to answer questions online is inspiring!
