Play Date with the Gardner Quad Squad

show more details
The Gardner Quad Squad is ready to play! Catch a glimpse into how a typical playdate goes down in this household.

Ashley Gardner is the mother of quadruplets, known as the Gardner Quad Squad. Watch her family on the season finale of "Rattled" on March 8 at 10/9c.

Being parents of multiples has been such an eye opening experience for us. In our case, I think it helps that these 4 babies were our first, so we don't know any different. This is our norm! Having multiples is such a rewarding thing. We honestly wouldn't have it any other way. We cannot imagine our lives any different.

Having quadruplets was the blessing we never knew we wanted. I'm so grateful to God for blessing me with these beautiful little miracles who have turned our world upside down in the best way possible.

Being able to watch 4 individual humans and their personalities develop at the same time is so incredible to watch. They might be quadruplets, and two sets of identical twins but every one of them came here with their own unique spirits. Being able to watch them all unfold side by side is such a cool thing to watch that most people do not get the opportunity to do with their children.

Our life has gone into hyperdrive and most of the time we don't even notice we are running a million miles a minute. When God gives you a responsibility this big, he seems to send the energy to go with it.

We get asked all sorts of questions and we love it. We are ok being open about our lives if we can help people to understand infertility. My favorite question I get asked is "How do you divide your love between 4 children?" I think it is my favorite because I have an awesome response for it: "When you have multiple children (multiples or singletons) your love never divides. It multiplies."
