Here are three good reasons to celebrate

By LUKE KEIOSKIE

MICK and Sue Beehag have to celebrate Valentine's Day early every year they've got three birthdays to organise on February 14.

Triplets Michaela, Jack and Georgie turn six today, and while they are the best present Mick and Sue have received, Valentine's 2002 was a dramatic day.

"The kids were born 10 weeks premature and my heart was in my mouth," Mick said.

"They were so small that their feet, toes and all, fit on the pad of my thumb."

Mick even said his wedding ring could go over Jack's foot.

"The triplets were so fragile, but looking at them now they're good as gold."

While Mick and Sue snuck off to a BNB in Bellingen on Tuesday night for their own Valentine's Day, February 14 is the triplets' day in the Beehag household.

"It's all about them and their presents," Mick said.

"Even Rhys, their four-year-old brother, gets into it because from day one he joined the breed."

Although their birthday is today, the actual party will be on Saturday.

"A pool party!" Michaela cried.

"Pool!" Jack added.

"What?" Georgie asked, looking slightly confused.

"A pool party for your birthday," Mick said.

"Yeah!" all the triplets, not surprisingly, said at once.
