Twin Toddlers Will Be The Death Of Me

Updated on August 3, 2016

They Are Trying To Kill Me

My days are filled with, fighting, screaming twin toddler girls. They fight over toys, even though there's two of everything. Screaming at each other seems to bring them great joy, and me a big ole headache.

Meal time=Mess time

We have two highchairs, and they love to sit in them. That's as far as it goes, sitting in the chairs just to throw the food in the floor. They love making more work for mommy.

Don't let the sweet faces fool you

We are rotten

Messes are what they do best

Daily messes are my life. They are not twinados, they are twin hurricanes destroying everything in their path. What one doesn't think of, the other does. If one is into something, the other must try it also. They work together at most things too.

One will push the play kitchen over so the other can climb up on it. Pulling the baby gate down is their favorite thing to do together, one will pull at the top, while the other pushes at the bottom, and down it comes. All of the kitchen drawers have locks on them, do you think that stops almost 2 year old twins...nope. One will push down on the lock, while the other pulls on the drawer, and open it comes. When I'm in their closet getting them clothes, they tag team me, one on each side of me pulling things out as fast as they can. Do they want to play with the stuff they pull out, nope.

It's never ending, and they're not even two years old yet.

Oh the messes

Nothing is safe, with us around

Unstoppable

Not even a stove lock can stop us

The Never Ending Fighting

Fighting, oh the fighting never ends. They fight over toys, clothes, food, and me. I have four older kids, so I know sibling fighting is normal, but good grief. These two bite, push, pull hair, smack, and my favorite, screaming at each other.

Even when one is napping, the other will go up and smack the sleeping one, Really. Most of the time I think they hate each other. It never stops, even in their sleep, they kick each other, ugh.

Fight Time

The Stress

The stress of having multiples can be very over whelming. It's not for the faint of heart, that's for sure. Having four older kids, I thought two babies at one time would be easy. Boy was I wrong. There are times when I'm lucky if I get a shower once a week. There are weeks that I don't get to sit down to a hot meal with the family. If I'm lucky enough to get a sip of my morning coffee while it's still warm, I'll be happy.

The cost, wow who knew two babies cost so much. Two of everything, two in diapers, and two birthdays( did I mention they were born on Christmas eve). So two birthday party's the day before Christmas, with 6 kids, again wow.

Worth It All

Now that I've complained that my twins will surely be the death of me, I must take a moment to tell you how much I love it!

With all the stress, fighting, and messes, there are so many wonderful moments that make it all worth it! They really don't hate each other. The hugs, and kisses they share melts my heart. The laughs and giggles they share, washes all the stress away, if only for a moment. The twin conversions they have, that I don't understand makes me laugh. They way they snuggle up on me, and fall asleep, priceless! With all the stressful things they put me through, I still wouldn't trade it for the world! With all the messes, fighting, and craziness, I couldn't feel more blessed and loved.

All In All

All in all I'm a very blessed person. God knew what he was doing giving me twins. Most days I want to pull my hair out, but it's just the price I pay for the love of these babies! Do I want a break sometimes, of course, do I wish I never had them, not for a moment.

      I had fun reading this hub, Katrina! What a riot it must be in your home!

      Still, it's nice of you to make it into a bright and cheerful home - and that's all due to your generosity (in bringing kids into this world) and sacrifice.

      God will surely reward you for your endeavours.
