”One, two, three, naked little bodies splashed into the pool and started to sabotage me. It was all fun and games until one of them pooped. Yup. Pooped. Everyone out of the pool!”

“Spend a little time with each one alone—if possible,” she says. “Even if it's only ten minutes here and there. They like feeling connected and it slows down the battle for my attention.”

During the daytime event, Oliver, John and Gustav score time with mom when they shop the Old Navy store and load up on back-to-school items, including new backpacks for each boy. Lucky guys!

Plus, they also enjoy a digital photo booth, orange juice smoothie science lab, and cafeteria-inspired favorites while Baby2Baby is on-site collecting school supplies for children in need.
