Hold Onto Your Butts

If you grew up in the 80's/90's like me, you remember the magic of Jurassic Park.  The music, the special effects--it was simply one in a million.  In fact, one of my favorite scenes involved Samuel L. Jackson "rebooting" the park's security system and offering up his classic line of "Hold onto your butts."  I always giggled at the scene and since then, I've remembered this line when going into one of life's challenges.

Well, it is yet another "hold onto your butts" moment for me and our family.  We learned last night that ALL of our kiddos are going to be discharged from the NICU this week.  So, Isabelle comes home today.  Millie comes home tomorrow; Luke on Friday; and Ava on Saturday.  So, come the end of the weekend, we will have EVERYONE in this sweet little rental.

The doctors have asked us to stay in Phoenix for a week before going home.  All of this to say, WE'RE COMING HOME in the next 10 days or so.  HOORAY!!  Or maybe uh oh?  I'm not sure!

We still don't have anyone interested in helping us on the private jet front, so I think we'll have to start considering other options in the near future.  What those are, I'm not sure, but I've got about 10 days to figure it out.

Michael's mom is already here helping with Clara, so we have her help this weekend.  My super parents are currently driving to Virginia to put the finishing touches on our house before my mom turns around and flies out here at the beginning of next week.  I'm not sure who will be more exhausted--me or her.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.  It's going to be a bumpy few days and I pray God will give me patience and a sense of humor.

Hold on to your butts!


  1. Best news I've heard all year!😜😁

  2. How should someone contact you if they have a lead on the private jet front? Thanks!!!

    1. You can email me at Thank you!

  3. Moggie! I don't know if you remember me as we worked together forever ago at UVA's Alumni Hall! Haha. But I hope you're well. I recently heard of your quints, and I've been updating myself on your story! WHAT a journey so far!!! Praying for you all! (I have twins, which is NOTHING compared to QUINTS!!!!)

  4. You mentioned needing gear--I assume you need 5 of everything! I'm happy to help organize a handmedown list for you. As my baby is almost 2, I know I have gear to unload, and I'm sure I can rally JLC to fill some other needs. If this is helpful, shoot me a list of what you still need and I'll coordinate!

  5. There is a company staffed by volunteer pilots and planes (so would be small planes) called Wings Flights of Hope. From their website it looks like they do medical and humanitarian flights for free. You can fill out an online form requesting transport, perhaps they can help?
