Quadathon Question 10 & 11: Advice About Marriage

10. We love funny stories, any good ones in the past two years? Casey:  Gerwer Quads Funny now, but not funny then, yes probably. Drawing a blank. At one point my kids realized that our chair upstairs spun around, kind of like the one they love to TRY to play on at the doctor’s office. They decided it would be funny to take turns spinning each other on it and then getting down and not being able to walk. They would laugh so hard they had hiccups. While my first reaction was "wait, let’s not do that, someone is going to puke or bang straight into a wall", my second reaction was "it is Continue Reading

GIVEAWAY: $50 Gift Certificate to Designed For Babies! 8.   Have you thought about having more kids? Casey:  Gerwer Quads If by thought you mean someone asked and it took me about .0078 seconds to respond with NOOOOOOOOOOO. Then yes, I have thought about it. After taking that insightful moment, the answer is a very firm No. My husband and I completely agree that we are beyond thrilled with what He has given us. I think its great people that can handle more than 4 kids, I just don't think I'm one of those people. While I do actually mourn the fact that I will never get to have Continue Reading

GIVEAWAY: $50 Gift Certificate to Designed For Babies!   6. If there was one thing you wish you knew at the beginning of blogging, what would it be? Casey:  Gerwer Quads This answer isn't going to be a nice answer, unfortunately. Beware of the haters! Some people out there are mean. And what is worse, they don't like you, your parenting style, your writing style, even your new hair cut (I know, seriously) yet they keep reading your blog and comment negatively on it. I wish I would have known at the beginning that people did this, I may have braced myself better. Continue Reading

Quadathon Question 5: Is Your Blog A Stress Reliever

GIVEAWAY: $50 Gift Certificate to Designed For Babies!   5. Has your blog helped you relieve some of the stress that has come with raising 4 kids? If so how? Casey:  Gerwer Quads Yes but not in the way you would think. I love having a blog, though I will admit, I haven't been very on top of it lately. I love the fact that some days I will look at the calendar and think, what was I going through 2 years ago today and I can see and it makes me smile.  But the part that has helped me relieve stress is that it leads me to my best friends on the planet, fellow quad moms.

Quadathon Question 4: How To Calm The Storm Down

GIVEAWAY: $50 Gift Certificate to Designed For Babies!   4. When it gets to be “crazy” in your house, what is the one thing you do to calm down? Casey:  Gerwer Quads Hide...Just kidding... kind of. When it gets crazy I walk downstairs, walk in my room and sit on the edge of my bed and breathe for just a moment. The kids are safe upstairs and even a minute of almost silence is crucial for your sanity at those times. Mom's need a time out too. Shoot, I wish someone would send me to my room and tell me not to come out till I was ready to be nice! Also, when the Continue Reading

I would just really say know going into it that your financial situation WILL change. Even if you are still working and you make great money, kids take a BIG chunk out of your piggy bank, let alone multiple kids at one time. I wish I could Continue Reading
