It was bad bad bad for days but I am on the mend. Sadly, my daughter still won't touch formula (spent another large sum of money trying) and my supply is shot (bye bye freezer supply).
Krista, I have been thinking about your post on and off all weekend, and I had a 9mo old and a 3yr old, and it was NOTHING like twins. Some days were tough, but most days our life was pretty uncomplicated, and compared to twins, it was a freaking cake walk! And I keep thinking about some crazy twin mom, and all I can figure is that she must have only had twins, and that her twins were like tweeners or older and she has forgotten much, and she probably said something like, "Wow, I don't know what I would do with two kids of different ages". lol.
and Sheila, glad it is getting better, sorry for the supply issues and stubborn daughter!
Just re-reading some of our vents and attempts at positivity. Holy crap babies are hard! You guys alive still?
Still kicking here, although its been a rough couple of days because the babies have been really sick.
yes. still alive, and yes still hearing from ppl that it should be easier now, of course, that comes from ppl that don't have twins. These boys keep me so busy! My bigger kids started back to school a few weeks ago (year round), so back to the schedule, which is nice, but I swear I can never get anything done. They are so messy! :) But they are hilarious too.. their little sense of humor (s) are really coming out, its cute! :)
I am still alive too. I am with Rachel. I am not really sure it has gotten any easier and the girls are over 2.5. The tantrums just do me in. Both girls are so dang stubborn and I just cannot deal with it sometimes, especially when they are both refusing to get dressed. We are slowly attempting potty training. We had Keira in underwear for a little while, but then she started refusing to go to the potty with anyone, but me. I was not going to give in to that, so we put her back in diapers. We need a little more cooperation before going back. Ugh!!
Well ... as hard as it is, I feel certain nothing will ever suck as bad as the first month. There's just no way!
