Twin adventures – our first snow day!

Today we went on an adventure. Mummy says we’ve been before but we don’t remember! When we were teeny and in mummy’s tummy, really early (and when mummy though there was only one of us), she and daddy went to the snow, just up the road from our house. We live in the Hunter Valley…

Super heroes or stupid…we took our twoddlers to dinner!

I love it when I read those comments by mums like ‘it’s easy going out with kids’, ‘don’t let it change you!’ Because I think one of 2 things. Either you have really f@cking easy kids in which case GO YOU! Or you are one of those nauseatingly positive people! Of which, much to the…

Parenting tales: To catch a pee…

I knew there would be many challenges faced in becoming a parent. And I knew there would be unexpected challenges. Ones I just wasn’t prepared for. Those ones that no one tells you about, that just pop up and you are left thinking ‘Watf!’ But this week I was thrown a challenge that left me…

Makeup+toddlers don’t mix – operation clean up!

I’m pretty sure that when you read page one of chapter one of any parenting book it probably starts with observations like: ‘Don’t leave child unattended’ or ‘don’t leave child around water or in a car’ or maybe even ‘remove any hazards from child’. I wouldn’t quite know because upon finding out I was having…

Parental wine night

Some nights you just need to sit back and reflect on the challenges of parenting. The wins…and the losses (be honest we all have them) so we have started a weekly de-brief! You have all heard of the mummy blogs. The endless narration of parenting from a maternal point of you (and I love them…

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…

Milestone Mania – Walking, toothing and painting!

It’s been a busy week in the world of the Doublebubbers! Not only are we mid re-building a house….yes what a fabulous idea that was with twins! But also the boys have hit some major milestones too and it appears life is a bit of a struggle for these two at the moment! Firstly, building…

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…

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…
