From A Mommy's Point of View

Ok, so originally I was going to say this was a twin Mom's point of view, but then I think any mom can definitely relate. So here goes!

Iced Coffee
Brewing a cup of coffee and by the time you are able to drink it, it's cold! Drop in a couple ice cubes and a straw and voila!

I put my son in his bouncer and go to make his bottle, then must run back to him because he has decided his bouncer is NOT where he'd like to be and is scooting himself out of it! Time to buckle him in!

My babies are "Happy Spitters" and therefor spit up a lot! Sometimes it gets on the floor and I can't exactly stop feeding them to mop the floor. No worries though this guy has no problem helping! (**Warning, this next picture may gross you out as it usually does me, but hey it works!)


Now, not only is it the fact that they are both sleeping, at the same time, but also just look at those little faces. How could you not forget all your troubles, at least for the moment?

Hot Meal
A what?

Sometimes you just have to choose your battles. I mean do I really want to take this away from her when she just looks so cute? The twins need to learn to share sometime right?

Ego Boost/Time Delay
Taking the twins out in public! I must plan an extra 15 minutes if I need to get things done since we get stopped several times. I need to make a sign that says: Yes they're twins, no they're not identical, they are boy girl, names are Kaylie and Cavan, 6lbs 6 oz and 5lbs 10oz at birth, almost 5 months old. But then it's always an ego boost because they tell me how adorable they are (duh!) and that I look great! :) I think they have to say it, but I don't mind hearing it!

Consists of my children gripping my hair and not letting go. I guess they're giving me a layered look.

What makes it all worth it

Love the last pictures! And I agreed with all especially the hot meal what? I just said that to my hubby last night. I never get to enjoy a hot meal. And my dogs were our mops for 6 months of reflux. My hubby thought it was gross. I thought it was convenient.

You should make a sign that says: "Same dad, different moms!!" haha Our friend here has twins and she said she used to get so sick of people stopping her and asking all those questions like you said haha so she used to just say that to make it interesting :)

Hi Gretchen,

Stumbled upon your site when I was pregnant with my own twins, born May 27th (also boy/girl). I had to laugh at your "ego boost" here as we have been having the same questions, exactly! Anyway, they are beautiful!
