today has been fun lol. me and keira were attempting to transform a normal cardboard box that daddy had brought home from work into a play cooker.... so far it has a door and is painted white. we gunna let it dry and continue tomorrow, im not sure how good it will look though, but hopefully keira will be able to have some fun with it. i should maybe make some salt dough play food to go in it. why buy one when we can make it ourselves lol. see, i can beat the credit crunch lmfao!

omg terible 2's are a nightmare lol. keira seems to be as hormonal as a bloody teenager! she has tantrums over practically nothing! her mood swings are soooo unpridictable! bit like mine are on pmt lol.... but then again, id rather her get it outa her system while i am still the 'responsible' adult instead of when she is a teenager and realises that mummy isnt perfect lol.

Parenting Twin Toddlers

Dr. Laura,
I am the mother of fraternal twins, Duncan and Peyton. They are 19 months old. Duncan is the more active of the two. Lately, he has been throwing tantrums, hitting, falling out on the floor, hitting his head on the floor or wall, and repeating "no."

He gets very tired throughout the day because he is always on the move. He plays hard all day. He has at least 1 quiet time at daycare when he sits in his high chair and looks at a book or the daycare provider reads a story to him. I have asked that she try this at least twice a day.
