Yesterday I had a parents' evening-type meeting thingy (there's probably a better term for it than that 🤣) with Cora's keyworker at preschool (Henry's is in a few days time). The only question I really had for her was about how C is getting on socially. I know her speech, understanding and physical development are … Continue reading Can Being Twins Ever Hold Your Twins Back?
A month or so ago, we started to potty train Cora.

Basically I just wanted to have a great big f**k-off rant about how utterly SHIT the twiglets are at going to bed at the moment. Anyone who's followed me for a while … Continue reading Bedtime Battles – a.k.a. GO THE F**KEDY F**K TO SLEEP!
So I just thought I'd share some of the things I never realised about having twins, until we had them! Obviously this is just my perspective but I'd be interested to know if others can relate 😁 1.
