Popping in to Say HI

So, really?  Has it been almost two months?  I won't say I've been busy.  Everyone's busy.  I've chosen to do other things with my time besides post.  Which is sad, really, because I love this community and don't want to lose touch with it.  Not to mention this is the only place where I document some of the twins' milestones.  And I haven't even really done that.   Bleh.  As it is, I'm writing this post from work.  From a job I've been at nearly one year where I still feel brand new (clueless) and where I like less about it than I don't like. 

The twins are twenty months old.  They are little BOYS.  I don't think I can call them babies anymore.  They don't have a lot of words yet but still manage to communicate and they understand a lot.  They are a bit more demanding than when they were infants (if you can believe that) since they get into everything -including the oven! (technically not inside the oven, but opening it and playing with the racks.)  Some things are easier now and some things (like finding time to take a shower!) are not. 

I'm toying with the idea of sending them to a child care center two days per week.  I want them to have more socialization and exposure to activities that I don't have the time or skills to show them. (crafts anyone?)  I definitely want to do this for at least pre-school when they turn three but maybe sooner. Cost is a huge factor as part-time day care will stretch my already tight budget at least another $100 per week.  Sweet Potato's food allergies adds another layer of concern.  And my preference so far has been to spend every waking moment with the boys (theirs and mine) that I can but I'm starting to feel okay about going out to dinner or having a few hours during a weekend day to get some things done or have personal time.  We will see.   

That's all I have for now.  Oh that, and some photos!

Sticking out their tongues!


  1. They look so mature! How is that possible that they will be TWO in the fall?!

  2. They are so cute! And so big!

    I remember when I was pregnant saying I wanted to make sure I went out at least once a week without the baby. And now I hate the thought of not spending time with him when I can.

  3. Yes, that's the thing as they get older. The things that get easier are replaced by new challenges. I suspect that it will be this way until my 3 and 5 year olds are in their 20's!

  4. wow, what total cuties! you are doing so great with them. Good luck finding a program that will work for you all! I hear you on the shower thing. I find it hard to shower some days and I have a spouse and only one baby -- I seriously admire you! Happy mother's day!!!
