Billy’s Facebook Status Updates

Instead of blogging about what’s been going on for the last couple of months, I thought I’d let Billy’s FB status updates do all the talking.  He’s so much better at updating about the kids than me and it makes me laugh to go back and read how each day went when he was on “Quad  Duty”!  Enjoy catching up on the last couple of months!  And of course, some pictures at the end…..

Billy Graf Don't turn your back. If you leave your two-year-old quadruplets in a different room for 5 minutes unattended...they will get into the fireplace and get old ashes EVERYWHERE. Thank God we didn't have a fire going, but ASHES everywhere... everywhere I tell you. Crap.

Billy Graf Kids first introduction to Taco Bell. The verdict: Forrest, Danna, and Laine all really liked it. They all ate all of their quesadilla and their cheesy fiesta potatoes. Pius LOVED IT! He ate all of his, ate a couple bites of mine, and then licked the rest of his plate clean. HE LICKED ALL OF THE NACHO CHEESE AND ...SOUR CREAM OFF HIS PLATE. I'm going to have a lunch buddy!

Billy Graf Anybody want to swim in a pool of snot? The Graf House is your place. We may even have enough for a deep end.

Billy Graf Sorry about that, Josh. Try this one: Two little boys for sale. Forrest we will give up for around 100 dollars. As for Laine, he is like the old couch you just try to get rid of. We will put him in the front yard with a sign that just says, "Free".

Billy Graf The market has changed. Forrest is now off the market. Any taker will have to pay for Laine. He might be coming off the market soon, though.

Billy Graf I WANT OUR KITCHEN BABY GATE BACK! I WANT PIUS TO USE HIS BIG KID WORDS TO ASK FOR AN ORANGE, INSTEAD OF EATING THROUGH THE PEELING! I NEVER WANT TO GIVE MY KIDS ANOTHER BATH! SHIT!

Billy Graf After baths, Danna decided to drop a deuce in the middle of the floor while i was diapering one of the boys. For those of us men that didn't think girls pooped, having a daughter blows that theory out of the water. Especially if her name is Danna Graf.

Billy Graf I've come to the conclusion...The Wiggles Show is like crack for the Graf Quads. They can't get enough.

Billy Graf The new quad squad revelation of the day: All 3 boys know how to crawl out of their cribs. I was woken up from my nap by Forrest, Pius, and Laine getting really close to me on the couch and Forrest saying, "Shh," in his loudest "whisper" voice possible. Guess the door knob locks go on the inside of the room now.

Billy Graf The boys are downstairs right now. Danna wants to stay upstairs and watch "Play With Me Sesame!" Don't worry anyone, we have toddler-proofed the basement. The question, though is, "Can they be trusted?" I will let you know.

Billy Graf Okay so the basement thing went alright. Pius and Laine lost interest in the basement after about 30 minutes, but Forrest stayed down there for almost two hours. What a weird little boy!

Billy Graf WOW! Just got home from mass...Laine is in the liquor cabinet, the door knob lock (which was on the inside of the door) is broken, the door to their room is wide open, the light is on, Pius is in Danna's crib with her, and sweet Forrest is sleeping like a baby. Maybe we need to put lids on their cribs.

Billy Graf Danna is getting better. This morning at bathtime she decided to take a dump in the kitchen at least. It is so much easier to clean poop off of a hardwood floor than off of carpet. I think she was looking out for me. What a sweetheart.

Billy Graf Pius's new obsession with bowling (while I think it is awesome), is getting INCREDIBLY annoying. His cute little voice saying "bowling pins" and "knock em over" is starting to get old.

Billy Graf Laine is so much like me it is out of control. Example 1: The boys were stacking blocks today. Pius and Forrest were going slow and being careful. Laine was going for speed and couldn't get his stack as high as them. That really pissed him off. Example 2: He was one gigantic temper tantrum all day. He is still ...alive, he isn't screaming anymore, he isn't hurt, but I wouldn't call him happy.

Billy Graf Pius is freakin hilarious. He's figured out the night system. He now drinks his night sippy of milk as slow as possible so that he can stay up longer. AND tonight he wanted to pray for "bowling" and "pins down." That boy cracks me up.

Billy Graf I guess Pius thought he was a steak. He got into our drawer and completely seasoned himself. I should've known something was up when I heard Laine laughing hysterically. Add steak seasoning to the grocery list.

Billy Graf Danna is a very happy camper today. That means the Graf house is a happy house today. With the exception of Laine occasionally biting one of his brothers.

Billy Graf We just asked Forrest what he wanted for dinner. He said, "Taco Bell." These guys are going to be expensive to feed if they are already asking to eat out and they are only 2.

Billy Graf Frightening revelation of the weekend: The kids already eat an entire large pizza for a meal. Seriously? A whole large? Yep, that's right.

Billy Graf And just 2 days after I say how fun it is to wake up with my kids...Laine pisses me off before I even open their door. He has started climbing out of his crib again (and into the others) and he turns on the light. I'm not looking forward to toddler beds. AT ALL! What a little shit.

Billy Graf Took the kids outside this afternoon. They acted like they'd been cooped up in the house for 4 months. A bunch of crazy, spazzy monkeys.

Billy Graf It is amazing to me...the way Pius and Laine can go from complete rage with each other to laughing uncontrollably at and with each other instantly. In the last 10 minutes they have switched emotions about 14 times.

Billy Graf Heading to Carlos O' Kelley's for dinner. I hope the kids like C.O.K. As much as Chico's. Chips and salsa are well liked anywhere I think.

Billy Graf Carlos O' Kelly's went really well. They might even let us eat there again. As for this morning, 2 things occurred to me: Forrest is lazy. He made me feed him his oatmeal (he wouldn't use his spoon). And Danna is adaptive. She struggled using her spoon so she just started grabbing her oatmeal and shoveling it in with her hands. Who needs utensils?

Billy Graf This morning at breakfast Danna farted. Laine started laughing, Pius said, "Danna farted," and Forrest tried to fart so hard that he shit his pants. Typical stuff for the Graf Quads.

Oh, how adventure filled your house must be with that crew:) I love Billy's facebook updates. I laughed my way through... right up til I choked on my tea with the "morning gas" story!

As always... the pictures of the kiddos are precious. Have fun with the transition to toddler beds. I have no advice for you there!

Amber said...

What an adorable post! Loved it!

Heather said...

Loving Billy's updates. I know his FB friends have to laugh everytime he posts! And loving the pics of the kids as well.

As for the FB status copying -- is there an easier way to do that than just cutting and pasting each status update into another document?

Kimberly & Alex said...

hysterical stuff. i think i need to be Billy's fb friend just for the laughs!

Moni Graf said...

If there's an easier way with the FB updates, Heather, I'm in the dark about it! I just copy and pasted all those entries.

Glad you all have enjoyed reading them as much as I have. Never a boring day, that's for sure!

Amy said...

these are hilarious! i think i laughed hardest about any that involved poop, lol. esp about girls pooping, i knew a guy that had a website called girlspoop all about the idea that girls should not poop (men are weird!)
good luck with the toddler beds. we just switched Collin (same age) out of his crib and into a double twin set up with his big brother and so far its gone very well (and he is a monkey) i just put a picture of their set up on my blog. hope it goes as well for ya'll.

I love reading Billy's posts. He is just so much more honest and brave in his postings than I am. :) Love the last pic of you and Billy. Looks familiar :) You are right Moni, you do great at taking the photos yourself. Brent asked where he could get that incredible tux shirt that Billy has. I can't wait to see how your transition to toddler beds go.
