Back when the twiglets were babies, whenever I met a mum with older twins, one of the main questions I'd end up asking was ‘when will it get easier?’ Always spoken with a slight undertone of crazed desperation, meaning ‘please tell me it gets f**king easier, please, PLEASE!'' 🤣 The other day, as I got … Continue reading Has It Finally Got Easier?
I remember vividly the first time the twiglets came home from nursery and started singing a song that I didn't know. They were about 19/20 months and hadn't been going there long - their speech was nothing like it is now, but they were clearly attempting to sing a song and I had no idea … Continue reading When You Can’t Protect Your Children From Other Influences

I know her speech, understanding and physical development are … Continue reading Can Being Twins Ever Hold Your Twins Back?

I managed to do a short walk (literally two minutes) from the car to a local softplay, and back again after, … Continue reading Breakthrough or Fluke?

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 … Continue reading Discipline – WTAF?
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 ‘is this normal?’ In the very early days, when we first brought our tiny bundles home, the midwives and health visitor … Continue reading How Do You Know If What You’re Feeling Is Normal?
