A Tale of Twins – Part 4

Once again I find myself alone, staring at the ceiling of a hospital room. This time there is nothing but stoney silence. It’s a weird silence. An unknown silence after the chaos of the last 24 hours…I’m not sure what to think. I’m full of emotions and my mind is racing at a million miles…

A Tale of Twins – Part 3

I stare around the completely dark room. My heart is pounding at a million miles, my head throbbing and I’m trying to re-trace what happened? I can hear babies crying, mothers babbling and as my eyes begin to focus I can see a curtain and dull lights above it. I hear a lady coughing loudly,…

The Tale of Twins – Part 2

Sleeptime…it’s like the marathon I never trained for!

Right now we are smack bang in the middle of the “10 month sleep regression”, yet another unadvertised bonus of the…

Lessons I’m learning about 10 month olds!

As we reach the 10 month (8.5 corrected) milestone, it’s fair to say keeping up with these little monsters has just become a challenge in itself! Long gone are the tiny helpless preemies who spent their lives screaming from pain from colic and reflux and insert assertive, headstrong infants who now scream….well for all reasons…

Sometimes getting out isn’t the best idea!

There are a couple of things that I have learnt since becoming a twin mum. The first is that the simplest of every day tasks can become an almost impossibility. The second without fail something will go wrong! Simply put that is why this year I have found myself replicating a turtle cross snail and…

It’s time for a coffee and a catch up!

As I sign off on my last Uni assignment (and the paper work for a new house), I can finally turn my attention to this little project known as doublebub! It’s been a crazy time and there is plenty to catch you all up on living with twins! Harrison & Hunter are now 9 and…

An open letter to my 6 month old twins…
