Metro Parent

Back when Phil and I lived in Berkeley we were at a Long's Drug store buying who knows what when we were surprised to see our land lord on the cover of Bay Area Parent! She had adopted an adorable little girl from Guatemala shortly before we moved into the lower half of her house. Little did we know that just a few years later we'd be in a similar type magazine.

A free lance writer for Metro Parent, a local parents magazine, contacted us for a story she was working on. She remembered us from the article the Oregonian(local newspaper) did when the triplets were born. We had a lovely time at the park while she interviewed me and the boys played on a blanket. She was impressed at how well the boys behaved and couldn't get over how adorable they were. It's too funny but within a couple of minutes she identified Thomas as the "alpha male!" I thought that was the most fitting description anyone has ever come up for Mr. T! That little stinker will get his when he and his brothers realize he was the last one born : )

Once a year MP puts out two magazines, one is the regular monthly issue and the other is a yearly "Your Baby and You". We are in the later one and unfortunately they haven't posted a PDF of it in their website. So I scanned it but didn't have time to crop it pretty. If you click on the picture you should be able to see the text if you so do wish to read the article about prenatal care. I must say she did a good job and were surprised that we were the fulcrum of the story. I guess I thought for sure we'd be reduced to only two sentences : )

We are in this ad, can you find us???
