I always say that we are busy around this house. Well that's almost an understatement. Recently I had my mother n law watch the girls so I could catch up on book work. I spent the whole day sitting in a chair looking at a computer. It was so surreal!
Not one little peep was made, no mad dashes to grab a baby before they plummet down the stairs. No picking paper and plastic out of anyone's mouth. No grabbing a baby off of another before screaming begins, no stopping chores to feed, dress, change, or put a baby to bed. I think we all get the point...
It was only the 2nd time since the girls have been born that I have been alone in my house. CRAZY!!! But the thing was I really really enjoyed it! I struggle to ask for help. Have since the day the girls were born. But getting time to myself so I could do normal everyday activities in peace was more than needed and appreciated.
So with the advice of a few people I have decided to get a day a week away from these crazy's. it isn't to go out and spoil myself.... it's so I can simply stay ahead on my chores, book work, and cleaning. I'm sure some will roll their eye's and think I am being very spoiled. And maybe I am who knows. I'm just grateful for those who have offered to help out.
And incase you are one of those who think I'm ridiculous or someone who wants to see the crazy's in action I added a few pictures to help justify my day to myself.
but mom we love emptying bags
Look mom we can do everything that Traetyn can. Which included climbing face first over that bar... only a few tears followed
whats that mom??? oh.. you were trying to fold these clothes?
well good luck
But mom we were hungry for more cheerios
Oh... so this isn't for eating???
but I love splashing in the dirty goop that dropped off the dishes
I guess even I have come to realize that while I love being a twin mommy it's okay to admit defeat sometimes. It's okay to reach out and ask for help. So I am! and I think while it will be a wonderful getaway for me it will be great for the girls as well! I'm hoping it will solve some of our clingy problems as well.
The only time the girls are completely content and happy is when we are swimming. And while I would love to take them everyday all day that doesn't help out the to do list either.
So thankful for my little loves, and excited to be able to appreciate them a little more!
