A few weeks ago, we spent a fabulous morning at Mayfield Lavender with the very lovely Rachel Thornhill. I’ve known Rachel for a few years as she used to teach the twiglets Gymboree before she embarked on her career as a photographer. Her work is amazing so when she offered to take some photos of … Continue reading Twiglet Top Tips – Rachel Thornhill Photography
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?

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. Henry wasn't ready (still p*ssing all over the house if I took his nappy off 🙈) and I figured I'd personally find it more manageable to do one at a time anyway, given that I wasn't sure how it was going to go and … Continue reading Twiglet Top Tips – the Potette
