…Had 3 kids teething at the same time….yea…loud…headache…asprin…help
….Had 3 kids in diapers at one time…it smells as bad as you think
….Gone though 2 gallons of milk and 1 can of formula in 1 day…man-o-man, kids like to eat
…Watched the same cartoon movie all day just to get some peace and quiet
…well…welcome to the land of kids with a side of twins…
So here we are again…everyone is sick. But nothing is worse than a sick baby…except maybe sick twins. My poor little baby boys…twice the runny noses, twice the runny butts, twice the crying. And I ran out of infant medicine. What a bummer. It seems one of us has been sick everyday for a month.
My son and daughter are past the “oh…poor…baby” stage. They take medicine, no problem. They can fall asleep when they are coughing. They can help me with the babies. But “oh…poor…babies”. Now I must go and track down some baby medicine. I hear their runny noses calling me.
Shocking and unplanned…yea…to say the least. Especially since we had just had a baby and had a 3 year old to top that off. Kids are wonderful and cute and all that, but when you find out you are pregnant with twins…you feel like you got into a car accident. You think, “How could something like this happen…This kind of thing never happens to me, This isn’t happening,”…ya know…the usual. I know some of you reading this will think I am the worst person ever…but I am not. I am just telling you how it feels to have every plan you ever made stop in an instant. Even if we already had two kids, twins are a whole different cup of tea. We had only planned on 2 kids. When we got pregnant again, we thought maybe 3 wouldn’t be so bad…yea…three kids…that is funny. But that is the way life is. Life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans…at least that is what I hear. I also hear that if you want to make God laugh…just make some plans. He thinks that is the funniest thing since…well…sending twins to a couple who are convinced they will only have 2 kids…funny.
Not only do you need 2 of everything, but you need about 5 people to properly take care of them. Before I had twins, I could never image how parents of twins could do it. Now that I have twins, I can’t image how parents of even more multiples could do it. I find parenting 2 single births and a set of twins hard enough.
So, shocking and unplanned…yes. But they are wonderful. I could do with more sleep…and less poopy diapers (cause we have 3 in diapers…yes…our garage smells like a poop factory)…but we love them…multiples and all.
