big girls

Yesterday a miracle happened. The girls played together, without screaming or pulling hair, for 45 minutes. This was a new record for them by oh, about 43 minutes. I'm not even kidding! Three seems to be a hard number, often two of them can go uninterrupted for 20 minutes if I keep the third entertained. But this was all 3 sisters engaged in some sort of make believe game involving a birthday party, slumber party and school. I kept an eye (and ear) on them, but stayed out of view as much as possible so as not to disturb the magic that was happening. I've been promised that it'd get easier after the twins were 2 or so by many strangers with experience, but it's been hard to believe. I might be able to after all.
