iBlog Friday is our weekly roundup of the best of Aussie parenting bloggers. These writers will take us through all the highlights and lowlights of their parenting adventure this past week, including advice on how to parent tantrum-throwers, triplets and messy kids.
I was in a shopping centre last week and got talking to a complete stranger about having triplets.

What was different this time was the fact that I was asked for advice on coping with multiple babies.
This question shouldn’t really stump me as I have indeed been there and done that, however the best that I could come up with was advice regarding vehicles that can fit three baby seats side by side and the fact that having a routine in place is essential.
