Time Flies

First, let me say that I admire you M-o-M's out there that can find time to post daily.   I constantly think of topics, but somehow sleep or catching up on the DVR'd stuff (and oh-so-predictably falling asleep before the show finishes) sounds more tempting to me after the boys go to bed.  Can you blame me?  Please keep in mind, however, that it is your posts that get me through some days.  I may not post daily, but you can bet I go through my blogroll! Knowing there are other mom's of multiples out there going through the exact same thing I am is comforting, and blogging has definitely made me feel like part of an entirely new family.  I have you to share with, to laugh with (and when you have two children the same age, you MUST laugh, or I'm convinced you'll go crazy), and lastly, I have you to thank.  Thank you for being there, documenting what life with twins (or more) is like, and for making me feel almost normal. 

My almost-19-months-old "kids."

So today I just want to share a photo and a thought.  I ran into an aquaintance at the grocery store yesterday. His kids are 7 and 5, and he commented on how time flies, and how he and his wife are now in a 'new stage' of life with their children.   Their 7 year old now acts like she's 15 (eye rolling included) and the 5 year old is just not a toddler anymore.  Kids.  Full blown kids.  He went into the pros (parent gets a little more time back due to child being more independent) and cons (eye rolling, attitudes, etc.) of this new adventure they are on.   I had to laugh to myself.   Any parent can understand this.  Although we are only 19 months in, just the other day, my hubby and I were talking about how our twins are no longer babies, ...and toddlers?  Forget it. They may still technically be toddlers, but they are starting to look like "kids".  Little boys.  Makes me smile and tear up at the same time.   Partly because I can hardly remember when they were teenie- tiny, and partly because I can't wait to see what they will become.  Tomorrow, next week, next year...

  1. I feel exactly the same way. It helps me so much to know that other parents are going through the same thing with their twins. That I am not the only mom that feels crazy some days.

    PERFECTION. So how I feel now...almost daily.

    Your babies (and you can continue to call them that as long as you wish!) are so darling. Enjoy each and every minute, and share them with us when you can! (DVR and sleep ARE very important!)

  3. You are NOT alone.. bwahahahaha.. I say all the time, that if I can share a MENTAL blog it would ROCK.. I think of GREAT posts in the car while doing errands, while in the shower, just before falling asleep.. etc.. But do I EVER get it typed out?? NNNOOOOO!!! lol.. It's currently after 0100 and my gremlins are KNOCKED out, and instead of blogging, I'm blog STALKING and watching my DVR.. lol.. If we had a bucket of Ben & Jerry's I'd be in heaven... (=
