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

I am seriously starting to wonder what on earth happens to my children when sleep time comes around. My seemingly pleasant yet needy duo appear to turn into some sort of possessed zombie creatures! 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…

Dear Harrison & Hunter Well….6 months hey, who would have thought, we made it!! And your dad and I are still talking….bonus!!! It seems like a life time ago that my life took the biggest sharp turn and I discovered I was pregnant! And then there was the day life would never be the same,…

A night with newborn twins!

Urgh…my subconscious mind is rattled again. I can feel my conscious try and fight it. “No you are imagining it…..it’s not true….it’s in your mind” My conscious mind becomes more alert and low and behold the gentle muffles of a stirring child can be heard in the background. A few stand alone cries, they could…

Going green for premmies – a prem tale!

If you asked me 10 years ago if I wanted kids, like every young adult my answer was yes. Like all people though, the reality of pregnancy and child birth was a vague thought, I really had no idea what I was in for. Fast forward to January this year and the early arrival of…

I haven’t pooped in days!

Well sorry, but I just had to tell someone! You see this is just an example of something NO ONE ever told me could happen after pregnancy! Seriously, it may be the most AMAZING process known to man kind, and I’ve gotta admit it’s bloody awesome, BUT, perhaps pregnancy should come with somewhat of a…

Preparing For Double Trouble

So if you are like me and a rookie to this parenting bizo then you probably have the naive idea that “you got this”! All I have to do is buy a few things and we are off and running! Can’t be too hard to get ready for small humans right, I mean how much…

Double Take…….You said what?

“Argh….” I cringed as I rolled over in the middle of the night….this is getting ridiculous I thought! Something is not quite right here! I’m 2 weeks into knowing that I’m pregnant, that makes me nearly 6 weeks,  a complete surprise…I have no idea how it’s happened (no not in that way! I did pay…

Lean on me…..

So you’ve probably had a second or 2 by now to process the fact that you have not just urinated on a stick and shoved it in your partners face AND you have just discovered the BIGGEST secret in your life and whether you are 3 weeks (like i was) or 7 weeks you’re now…
