I can barely put a sentence together, much less a paragraph or a whole post. But that doesn't mean I'm not thinking of things I want to share here. I may have to do snippet posts for a while. You know, a while being that length of time when I can pee whenever I like and not when I have to sneak it into a free moment in my day.

On Sunday during breakfast, Conor said "Patches!! Stop licking me!! I'm not a lollipop for dogs!!" Dave and I were overly impressed with our son's creativity. A dog lollipop. That totally fits with Patches' behavior lately.

Speaking of Patches, he continues to pass judgment on us as parents and the twins as puppies. Lately, he's been indicating that one of the twins' crying is excessive and perhaps that puppy is defective. At times, I agree.

I never thought I'd be the type of person who would want to dress her twins alike, but I totally do! The problem is finding matching clothes for boys and girls, especially when one is tiny and one is ginormous.

And surprisingly, I can already fit back into my prepregnancy clothes. I know my belly is much bigger now than it was last year. It's still distended from the twins. Dave suggested that perhaps my butt was not as big this year. Ummm, thanks?

We're in cry-o-rama here at the mother thing household. It's not nearly as much fun as it sounds. The only thing is that I know from this being our second time around that it's not going to last forever. I really, really, really hope it's not going to last forever and I'll be able to get out of the house and start living again.

I've talked to a lot of twins and I have yet to find one that says they were upset about being dressed the same. I do it with my girls when we're going out, but not as much around the house.

Leaving the house with twins is not as hard as one would think, once you get started and figure out what works for you. Most other twin parents I've talked to agreed that they imagined it to be a lot more difficult than it was. My husband prefers using the stroller, I always prefered the car seats in a cart.
Of course I'd never suggest doing it if your health or their health is such to make it an unwise choice! And of course I dont have an older sibling so my situation is different!
I always enjoyed the extra attention though. Especially when a young child blurts out "mommy, look- TWO babies!"
So very, very happy for you!!
