It's been awhile since I have done one of these. Heck it has been awhile since I have done a blog post period.
The main reason for that would be after 3 years of running on very little sleep, I have finally become tired enough to go to bed at a decent hour AND if I go to bed after midnight I can sleep the whole night through usually. I use to do all my blog post and crazy projects instead of sleeping so those have been put on the back burner.
You wanna know who else has been sleeping? These guys!
They hadn't had a regular nap in months, so we finally decided something needed to change. By their evening crankiness we could tell they definitely still needed them, so we moved them on to the couch where we can watch them and it prevents me from going up and down the stairs a hundred times to put them back in bed, make sure their diapers and clothes are on, etc.
All my twin mommas out there know that there is hardly a place you can go without being stopped by someone asking if your children are twins. It is annoying when you are trying to get in and out but I kindly answer their (silly) questions and go on about my business. I really thought this would be over after they weren't cute little chubby babies anymore but that is not so. I could go on and on about the crazy things people have asked or told me but I think by far the oddest story happened today. While trying to keep my kids from throwing cheerios all over the waiting room floor, a man walked up and asked if they are twins and I said yes, he goes on to tell me he has twin nephews. This is not uncommon, everyone tells me how they know someone who has twins( or my favorite, I know someone who had twins and then had triplets). He then tells me how one twin had a "freak" accident( he went into detail but I will spare you the details) and died and the other twin lived a miserable life without his brother. I was so in shock that someone would think that this is what a mother of twins would want to hear or in fact any mother would want to hear. I am sharing this because I think it is a lesson that you should think how your words will affect others before you open your mouth, we all want to share "our story" with other people but somethings are just better left unsaid unless asked upon. I think as moms we already go through worst case scenarios in our head before we do anything and adding extra worry is not necessary.
And to end this random post on a good note...
I texted my husband the other day asking him to go get some tweezers because I couldn't find ours and he comes back with these.
I went back and looked at the text thinking it was a auto correct error but nope he just read it wrong.
Wouldn't be so bad if I liked Twizzlers. Twizzlers anyone?
