Rainy Day Indoor Fun: Going Shopping
I don’t even know where to start. We are all doing great, but oh so busy. I’ve been nanny free for over 3 weeks now and while most days are great (really!) the last two have made me crazy. Granted I put myself in some stressful situations in trying to be twin supermom and keeping up with my mom friends (with singletons) going to concerts and fountains and easy-with-one-kid-but-insane-with-twins stuff.
I know there are those who disagree with me, but if you don’t have twins, you just don’t get it.
Doubt me? Take my boys to the playground for an hour and get back to me on your thoughts.
W2, is high insane energy. He is hard, hard work and he has been since day 1! He does not stop. The boy is intense and unless you’ve had even 1 kid like him, you won’t get it.
Grunter is *more* laid back and I’m very thankful for that!
Neither one are kids that stay near mommy when outside and they don’t need to be near each other either. Mostly, they run in the exact opposite direction. I run non-stop damage control!
All my “mom” friends are in agreement about W2, he is like a smiley tornado tearing through. He plows over anything in his way in order to get what he wants. He had his first outside temper tantrum yesterday over another kid’s toy. His emotions are so intense. He gets so focused on ONE thing. Distraction means nothing to him.
I worry about Grunter not getting enough attention from me and try so hard to get the balance right.
They are a blast (overall) and everyday spent with them is amazing. This age is exhausting for me, but so much fun, too!
I have so much more I want to write, but not much time these days.
Chicken has been traveling some (4 days in Chicago, 3 coming up to SF), and I’ll be solo. It’s crazy hard, but incredibly rewarding at the end of the day to know that I did it all by myself. I thought for so long I couldn’t, but I really can and I am.
(but I’d still like a little p/t help before I collapse!)

Well, that post certainly got some people riled up!
I had an all day migraine yesterday and stayed in bed with the shades drawn trying not to barf. It was hell. I haven’t had one in over 2 years. Really hope they don’t start coming around again.
Chicken took over the kid care all day long. It was the first time she’s had them alone all day since they were born! She was exhausted, but she did great.
I did nothing but lay in bed and lifted my tank from time to time. The bed in the living room is awesome! They just walk over to the mattress for BFing and yank at my shirt. EASY.
Ok, so we received an app from a young manny. And although he didn’t come right out and say it, I’m pretty sure he’s gay.
Would you hire a manny?
Why or why not?

When Chicken has a work dinner event I’m secretly pleased because it means I get to watch trash TV. There are many nights we don’t have the TV on at all (like all this week) because she is working all night and I’m busy in the kitchen, etc. I actually like NOT watching TV because I get so much done. But if I’m all alone…the lure is just too strong to fight sometimes!

Day 2 -Describe your high school self. What extracurricular activities, if any, did you participate in during high school?
I’m going to try to do the 30 day blog challenge. Try.
My LaZyBoy recliner/glider. God I love that thing. I would’ve taken a shot from the front but my wife is working on the sofa in near naked attire. Working from home sure does cut down on your laundry.
The kitchen table or the bed. Note how close they are together. Just climb over the plastic wall and you’re in a different room. See the high chairs? The double stroller is parked about 5 inches in back of them which means I’m regularly cleaning oatmeal off my stroller. I’ve often pondered the idea of getting a splat mat to put over the stroller not under the high chairs.
