Let me just say that having twins is a lot of fun. They can be so cute together! I love that they have a built-in best friend. I was lucky to be able to capture this spontaneous hug in a bathroom while waiting on Big Sister last month.
I love all the joys of having twins, but they are not always this cute. There are days that I get almost nothing done because of these mischievous girls. There are days I’m constantly cleaning up their messes, often moving from one to another or getting called in the middle of one clean up to go to another one. They climb on everything, are fiercely independent, think they are big kids, and want to do everything the older kids can do.
Tonight, I could not get them to go to sleep. They are usually (summertime) in bed by 8:00 pm and asleep by 8:30 pm. I took this photo at 9:26 tonight.
I had already put them to bed (a little later than usual) and then spent about ten minutes in Big Sister’s room. I went to check on the twins and found this “rug” they had made with all their blankets and pillows. Are they just being creative?!? I told them they had to stay in their beds, or I was going to start taking things out of their room. I kept hearing them playing with toys in their beds, so I eventually took everything out except their blankets and one stuffed animal each. They finally went to sleep after that. I think I will keep everything out of their room at bedtime from now on!
