they're all liars.
people told me that twins get easier at
then six months
i now know they're liars.
all of them.
i have come to the conclusion that it will never get easier.
and i know a few moms with young twins read this blog
i want you to know
they are all liars.
it doesn't get easier. it gets harder.
in the beginning they don't sleep but at least they just lay there.
......you know, the necessities.
and you are in such a delirious sleep deprived state that nothing seems real.
now, i am awake and aware.
and i am fully aware that it has not gotten easier.
they start rolling
then they start crawling
in opposite directions.
and they learn how to open the pantry.
and they empty the pantry.
and the first day it's cute
because they will play in one area for six minutes with the pantry contents.
they learn how to open the front door
and run outside
in opposite directions
with canned goods
in just a shirt and diaper because they have learned to take their clothes off.
so you just stop caring whether or not they look cute 100% of the time.
so you run out.
bring one twin in.
go outside to get the other one.
only to find out the first one opened the door and is now outside again
with more cans.
you then see their first round of booty rolling into the street.
that last series has only happened a few times.
but it has happened.
thank goodness we live on a quiet cul de sac.
their new favorite game is open the bathroom door, open the toilet, play in toilet, splash and lick each others hands.
dunk the pacy in the toilet and put it back in your mouth as toilet water drips down your face is another crowd pleaser.
who does that?
they also dabble in open mommy's and daddy's door and hide.
here's what we're working with now.
he is not strong enough to move the couch yet but give him a few weeks.
i am getting way too fat and pregnant to move the couch every time i want to go in or out of my bedroom.
our doors have handles, not knobs so finding those safety doorknob things has been difficult. i found something that may work so stay tuned
people tell me eventually they will play together but as for now?
not so much.
they can't talk so playtime is usually short lived and ends up in one getting hurt.
sometimes physically usually emotionally.
and these kids are draaaaaamatic.
they got it from their dada.
bahahahaha. those of you who don't know me might believe this and i love it.
every stolen toy results in a major crisis.
and have you been lucky enough to dine with us?
what a joke.
highchairs are no mas around here. they "sit" in big kid chairs nowadays.....but that is a whole 'nother post.
so eating out is pretty much impossible.
the only way we make it through is if i carb load them.
i just keep feeding them.
the good news is the new baby will be here in august so everything will get a whole lot easier then.
