I could actually cry… Yesterday we had a little breakthrough with H. To anyone else, this probably will not seem like a big deal in the slightest. But for us it was kinda huge. I managed to do a short walk (literally two minutes) from the car to a local softplay, and back again after… With no buggy AND NO REINS. And no twins – ha just kidding. To most other parents, even those with twins of a similar age, this is probably just normal. But when your toddler is a runner, it’s a huge deal.
Firstly, I’m not even sure whether I like the word ‘discipline’ really – it just sounds a bit… harsh somehow? Maybe that’s where we’re going wrong 🙈🤣 But I’m not too sure what else to call it… ‘trying to teach them not to behave like feral, out-of-control little brats?’ 🙈 Because to be quite honest, this is what the twiglets behave like a large amount of the time, especially when we’re at home. So how the hell do you go about disciplining twin toddlers?
‘Are my feelings as a mother normal?’ This is a question I’ve been asking myself basically since the day the twiglets were born. I felt utterly and completely overwhelmed in those first few weeks, even months, and constantly found myself wondering if I should be feeling this way. And even now, with two toddlers, I’m still asking the same thing…
I’m not too sure what the point of this post is going to be – in fact I’m pretty sure there isn’t one. Basically I just wanted to have a great big f**k-off rant about how utterly SH*T the twiglets are at going to bed at the moment. Do you have bedtime battles with your twins or is it just me?!
Welcome to Part 2 of my twin birth story. This part is all about the delivery of my twins. If you haven’t read Part 1 about my induction and labour, you can find it here 🙂
