Our beautiful girls turned two last week. Normally you wonder where the time has gone but so much has happened in my life since these two girls came into our lives. For me, them turning 2 is a real milestone.
When I first told my Mum that I was expecting twins she declared that the first two years would be the hardest and then it would start to get easier. Well as she was right about most things I am hoping she was right about this too.
I normally write about how the girls have developed but they are just two cheeky two year olds. I on the other hand am one very busy mummy who laughs, shouts, smiles, tells stories, cooks, learns, multi-tasks but most of all is completely smitten with my lot.
It's worth mentioning that in the past two years I have learned to:
Carry two increasingly heavy girls up the stairs at the same time
Talk on the phone, do playdoh and fold laundry - all at the same time
Easily find room to fit one girl on each knee for storytime
Change two nappies in record time
Have two dummies, two hats, two cups, two nappies, two lots of snacks in my bag at all times
Know when it's necessary to have two of a certain toy and when one can be shared
Really found meaning in the phrase - "Sharing is caring"
Amost tell them apart!
The power of two is very special. I am very honoured to be their Mummy and as all those random strangers like to say to me "ooh double trouble" - I say "double the love"!
