How we survived 18 months of twins

20 Sep

Well…hello again.

We’re going to have a series here on GBTS! I’m pretty excited about it.

It’s called “How we survived 18 months of twins” or HWS18MOT.

Thing is…there are plenty of blog posts on the internets that involve survival guides for new parents. I’m not going to say that this one is different. But I will try to talk about some things that really helped us, especially in the first few months, that are not going to be the advice that every new mom gets. I’ll go ahead and run through those right here.

“sleep when the baby sleeps”
“forget about chores and cleaning”
“get/ask for help”
“enjoy every minute” (this is one that really gets my goat. really? You want me to enjoy the minute in the middle of the night when the hubs and I realize that both twins have spit up in their beds and one of them has had a blow out after we changed the sheet…that moment? Thanks, but I don’t see a need to enjoy that particular moment. We did laugh about it…later…much much later)


“go easy on yourself” (I really love this advice and wish it were tattooed on every visitor’s forehead when they visit a new born)

I could go on, but you get the point. I’m, hopefully, going to talk about a few things that made a real difference in our lives during the first 18 months of our boys’ lives.

Stay tuned.
