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 🙂
Do you find yourself needing a break from your children sometimes? I would have thought it was a perfectly normal and healthy thing really! But it would appear that some people would strongly disagree…
The other day I started thinking about how as a parent, you just never know when the last time you’ll do something will be. And the fact is that if you have one child or multiples in one go, and you know you’re not having any more, those last times are even more poignant. Every last really is a last. In fact, every first is a last too. All those bittersweet child milestones are even more bittersweet when you’re only on this journey once.
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that we went to Camp Bestival in Dorset. You’ll know because I’ve been banging on endlessly about it and spamming non-stop with photos 🙊 Now, I’m quite aware that the photos I’ve posted make it look like we had THE most amazing experience… However, this is an example of one of those times when the reality is quite different to the carefully selected Instagram snapshots 🙈 It was all quite a bit trickier than it looked, mainly because we are complete novices! At camping full stop – never mind with toddlers in tow! I thought I’d share what we learned in case it’s useful for anyone. So here are my tips for taking toddlers to festivals!
Even though I do like a good moan from time to time, I generally feel very positive about being a mama. And even more so about being a twin mama 😁 Today though, I’ve had a bit of a tough parenting day and I’m feeling a bit ‘meh…’ 🙄
