Just had to say...

So, I've been thinking lately about being a mom of multiples...
Everywhere I go people seem to have something somewhat negative to say...
Oh wow you have your hands full,
Do you ever sleep?,
That must be so hard,
Imagine when they start walking,
You must've been scared to death when you found out,
I'm so glad it's not me...
and the list goes on...
I have made it very clear that I am just tickled to have most of you know, but I was thinking the other day that I want to give myself a pat on the back...I think I have taken well to being a mom and especially for having twins, what brought this on was that on Wednesday I was leaving the boys with Joe for an hour and a half to go teach dance and he was asking me what to do if they were both sleepy at the same time...I went on to tell him what I do and demonstrated how to lay them down in the crib at the same time, or how to lay one down if the other one is still awake, and just went down my list of all the different things I do...
And I thought despite the fact that somedays I'm a complete zombie I think I'm doing alright...and I'm doing something that a lot of other people think would be their worst nightmare and loving every minute of here it goes, in light of legally blonde...SNAPS for Kira! Today is a day to feel good about myself!
P.S.--the best comment I've ever gotten about having twins came from an employee at Costco who looked at the boys and just said, Oh what a blessing!
Two faces to wash, and four dirty hands
Two insistent voices, making demands
Twice as much crying, when things go wrong
The four eyes closing, with slumber song
Twice as many garments, blowing on the line
Two cherubs in the wagon, soaking up sunshine
Work I do for twins, naturally comes double
But four arms to hug me, repay all my trouble.

It's double the giggles and double the grins, and double the trouble if you're blessed with twins. ~Author Unknown
