Overheard in Northampton

Picture this if you will. My girlfriend and I take a trip to Northampton, with ALL the kids. Her three, and of course my two. We, being the intelligent women we are, put our littlest ones in our slings to wear them so that we'd have our hands free to deal with the wildness of three year olds. We do some shopping, and then come back to the meter after lunch so that we can put more time on it to finish walking around. It's a fancy new kind where you pay at a machine and it spits out a ticket that you display on your dash that says what time you purchased the ticket and how long you have. So next to said machine there is a bench, so we instruct all three year olds to sit on the bench while I walk the 20 feet back to the van to replace the old ticket with the new one. When I get back, Kat is laughing and says this is what she overheard.

"Oh LOOK, they have triplets"

I'm the first to admit that we have 5 gorgeous girls, 3 of which COULD look somewhat similar at a quick glance. But only in Northampton would people assume that two babywearing mama's with three toddlers must be "Together"

I'm adding an old picture of the girls from last year, to make a point. Yes they look similar, but while Mimi and Iza look like each other, (DUH) Hannah doesn't resemble them much.

I'm so dense, if it had been me I wouldn't have realized that they thought we were girlfriends!
