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…

Kids parties are an endurance sport…

Holy crap I feel like I have just stumbled home from 4 days at a day/night festival where I quite clearly have not slept, have drunk way too much and been dancing like it’s 1999! Having said that I’ve never been to any kind of rave party so I don’t really know but I kinda…

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…

Things I’ve learnt about being a twin parent!

The practicality of parenting twins is a very different in reality from what you think it could be. 2 kids growing up together, sharing everything, never alone…it sounds so poetic! And I am reassured by other twin parents that there comes a point in time where it gets easier! However, it is certainly different in…

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…

The Tale of Twins – Part 2

It was a beautiful Monday morning as we made our way over for another scan. Three weeks in hospital and I was starting to feel like I ran the place. Over all my mood was down, this was never how I imagined my last weeks of pregnancy to be. I always thought I’d be swanning…
