My husband and I just celebrated the twins' 3rd birthday, and looked back on the past few years... only to realize that the memories were too fresh and painful. I think he has your reluctance to drag any more than one kid to the store, unless they are lulled into the jogging-stroller-coma that makes children forget they can stand up and create havoc!

My challenge lies more in resistance to moving in, decorating, trying to make our house more than a shell that supports the bunch. It sure doesn't do much to support my husband, who has become both independent (washing all his uniforms) and more supportive than I ever thought he would happily do (he makes all the meals that aren't breakfast, and does much of the shopping). Meanwhile, all it takes for me to lose hope on the housekeeping is one 20 minute nap that allows the kids to rip up my collection of photos of my sister. It makes me want to keep anything worth looking at locked up in the garage in those packing boxes for another four or so years! We've both gained the humility to have people over anyway (at least the wives will feel better about their own housekeeping) and to keep living like college students, using craigslist couches and free rocking chairs, mostly so that we can't be angry about what gets destroyed. Patience has no dollar value, that's for sure.

In another 2 weeks, our little one will turn One, and by then we'll know if the next child will be a singleton or another set of twins. The godparents have already started praying that we can stop our bunch at four instead of jumping straight to five. I'm a little frightened (the statistics run about 1:7 that I'll conceive twins, due to my height) but between the idea that this is our last pregnancy, and that our bunch will be near enough in age to be good company to each other, I am sure we'll survive. What I'm not sure about, is if I will ever get enough sleep to feel intelligent again. I used to be one of the smart-yet-slow-on-the-uptake kind of women, but now it takes me a lot longer, and my ideas seem much less original. Anyone else been there and can offer hope?

I'd also happily accept prayers that the next one is a girl! The twins are boys, and their little sister could use a little sister herself, if God allows it.


oh i totally agree with this! my (cringe) sister-in-law, is constantly making underhanded comments about how i need "backup" to go to the grocery store with my bunch (1, 3 & 4)(occasionally my mom meets me there and we walk around together). meanwhile her kids are almost teenagers and are all 4 years apart, so what does she know about it, right? when you bunch, there is no such thing as just "popping in" to a store for a few things. even as well behaved as my older two are, it still doesnt remove the ever-present issue of my missing third arm. lol.


cheers to that!


Boy and I thought there was something wrong with me! I cringe at the idea of taking my 2 boys (13 months apart) anywhere alone. I'll skip going anywhere if it means I have to take them. I was thinking that I was just a bad mom for not having it all together. I'm glad to know it gets better!


I too cringe when I think about taking my two (11 months apart) out alone. In fact, we sold my car because since my youngest was born 6 months ago, I don't drive anywhere. It is a relief to know that it will get better someday...even if it is in 5 years.
