This past weekend was pretty tough. Have I mentioned recently that my children are crazy? They’re getting better. I mean, it’s not like it was when they were two but it’s certainly not easy yet. Sometimes I feel bad when I see other moms of young twins -younger than mine. They will give me this pleading look and say, “It gets easier right?” And then I look them straight in the eye and say, “Oh yes, if you can just hold on until they’re two, you’ve got it made” which is an outright lie. But I am doing them a favor. Everyone needs hope, a light at the end of the tunnel, a reason to get through another day. And truthfully it does get somewhat easier but my twins are almost four and it’s still pretty constant.
They do entertain each other now though. I love to watch them have their private jokes with each other. They whisper and giggle and plan and scheme and are generally pretty darned cute -so see? I don’t bitch all the time! Sadie is also willful and demanding and insists on being carried everywhere and Matilda is emotional and sensitive and very very specific in her likes and dislikes -okay so a little bitching.
The thing that’s the hardest about having three kids honestly is keeping them entertained and coming up with family friendly things to do. I wrote a Babble post about the things I DON’T LIKE TO DO and I will follow it up with some things I do like to do but I need suggestions. Why not check out the things I’m not into first though so you know just what kind of freak you’re dealing with.
