we found this "triplet" group on facebook.

we have been able to meet triplets from all around the world,
and talk with the parents of triplets for advice.
it's been so fun to see pictures of triplets who are our age,
and find a place where we can all relate.
many triplets are not identical, but we are.
it is pretty rare and amazing we are all healthy.

a mother of triplets asked,
"how can we be good parents to our triplets,
and what things do you wish your parents 
could have done differently?"

kylie was the first to respond saying,

"just love us! and understand that sometimes we just have weird triplet-y ways that may not make sense to you. i think one of the best things is to recognize them as individuals. so often we get lumped into one person which can really suck. when my mom acknowledges me individually for some kind of talent or skill i feel like gold. make sure you recognize their individual talents and abilities and how they balance each other out, because a lot of times we are all good at different things and that makes the triplet-ness even better!"

thankfully we have great parents who recognize our needs as individuals
as well as our needs to be together. which means we might need another trip to hawaii here soon.
