What kind of mom would I be if I couldn't tell my kids apart?

A mother of identical triplets has got to do what she's got to do.




You're the bravest of the bunch, Clara. Would you care to go first?


Be a good girl and sit there until it dries, Peach.


Lorena, I'm not sure about that color on you. Maybe we'll go a little lighter next time.


Don't give me that look, Clara. No one's going to make fun of you.
They'll be too busy making fun of the person who gave her poultry pedicures.

  2. Is life becoming a little to mundane on the ranch?

  3. Hilarious. Hot looking Chicks. All they have to do is hang around, pose and be a little tolerant and they have a wonderful life ahead.

  4. What a hoot! You are too funny.

    I can see the girls lining up at your patio window saying "It's definitely time for another pedicure, we're starting to chip up a bit!"

    Happy Mother's Day to you!

  6. The ladies at our barn in NC enjoy keeping up with your ranch fun. Our youngest lady keeps up with your blog and then emails us when she knows there's something us older gals would love. I'm thinking chickens in my back yard. . . maybe three. Going on a Tour d'Coop in Raleigh next weekend. . . can't wait. Plan to get some "ideas" & put them to use. Thanks for sharing the fun! Bobbie

  11. Pretty soon their combs will develop and one might tip one way, one might have a special ridge, etc.---You won't have to give pedicures anymore. :)

  12. Have you considered colored leg bands like they use on wild birds for identification? The nail polish is cute but the leg bands would last longer!!

  13. What chic chicks! If any of them must visit the vet, I'd love to hear you explaining the pedi-color.

  15. What a wonderful way to start the day! I so enjoyed the pedi-pics.
    Have the girls tried to peck at their toes now, thinking they are something yummy (mmmm, peach! mmmm, cherry!)?

  17. Now we're talkin'! Those girls totally rock it. Visions of A Chorus Line are flitting through my head. Miss Wynonna had best watch her back or she's going to lose her Diva status.

  18. See? That's the reason I just call mine "The Chicky Girls!" No one ever gets their feelings hurt!

  20. OMG! You are the BOMB! I love your outside of the box and very fun and hip thinking! My 3 year old would be jealous. Just yesterday I talked her out of wanting to paint hers green....maybe I won't let her see these pics! Or maybe I could be fun and cool like you and just go for it!

  21. O. M. G.!!! Now they're really beautiful girls - aren't you afraid they'll try lipstick and eyeliner next? Watch out, or they'll be out on the road strutting their stuff!!!

    Did the boys bring you breakfast in bed for Mother's Day?

  22. Gotta tell you a story. Once upon a time I had to, at the last minute, ask my friend Lori if she could watch our place while we went out of town for a few days. Dogs, cats, horses, donkey...can do. Chickens? Petrified. I talked her into just going into the chicken stall everyday and changing water and adding feed. She said she thought she could do that.

    She entered the stall the first day in sandals with her toenails painted "Peck-at-me-Red" ( not really but it sounded good here). The 15 girls immediately thought the most delightful 10 bugs, a bright red, had entered their domain. They attacked Lori's toes and she was outta there, permanently. For the next couple days she threw feed over the wall of the stall and snuck fresh water in the door before the girls went after her toes, even though they were a plain ole flesh color by then.

    Needless to say...if you see everyone chasing everyone else's toes around...now you will know why!

  26. I'm on the same page as gttyup: you might need to take breather from all the "farm life" and go to town and have a pedicure yourself? Or maybe some luch with folks who speak? Nothing personal....just talk to someone without so many whiskers, feathers, or hooves maybe? Happy Mothers Day

  27. Oh no, you didn't.....Hahahaha!

    I was about to ask you to get some 'face shots' of the girls and email them to me as I'm pretty sure there are some differences appearing but I like this colourful solution much more! :)
