A very busy morning so far. We've done 'writing' practice, painting and playing on the garden, on slides and in puddles. Let's see what the afternoon will bring! #twins #twinlife #twinmum #twinning #twinsuk #nonidenticaltwins #dcdatwins #twinmumlife #twinmama #twinmamalife #garden #painting #toddlers #twoagedtwo #twounderthree

Day 16 of @just4twins #multiplemumsupport2020 challenge - mum guilt. I touched on this slightly on day 15 when talking about Milas CMPA and not getting to spend a lot of time with Ava due to Mila being a full time screamer. Things have settled down since then and I do get to spend time with both me babies but the mum guilt is constantly creeping in. Its mainly about my lack of quality time with them one on one. I find my one on one time is mainly settling them when they’re upset or screaming, it’s not like a beautiful moment where we are playing one on one or having a nice cuddle. I so desperately wish I could feed one of my babies and and then just hold her while she’s happy and content, instead it’s feed one, pop her down, feed the other, pop her down, grab the first one, change her nappy, pop her down, grab the other, change her nappy, pop her down, quick tummy time or a book and then off for a nap. I never get to rock the girls to sleep because one whinges while I have the other, I’m always going between cigs trying to settle them to get them to sleep. If they’re both screaming I can’t grab them both and comfort them so one has to wait. If I do try and steal a nice one on one moment while the other baby sleeps or is content playing alone, it’s always interrupted by the other baby within minutes. One on one time is so precious so when I do rarely get some I make sure to savour every second, even if she’s screaming at me 😅 (Also how bloody hard is it to get a photo of both babies smiling when they’re only a few months old 😅 ) #twinmumma twinmomlife #twinmum #twinning #raisingtwins #mum #mumlife #twinmum #twins #sisters #fraternaltwins #twingirls #mumsofinstagram #twinsisters #multimum #cmpa

Day 15 @just4twins - hardest / favourite stage so far. I’ll start with my favourite- its hands down been when they’ve started smiling and they’ve recently started to giggle a little too. Every morning I wake up to the most beautiful smiling faces starting back up at me and I just melt into the floor 🥰 The hardest part has been with my little Mila who was diagnosed with CMPA and reflux at 9 weeks old. From weeks 5-9 weeks Mila would scream for 100% of her awake time. She would wake up, scream, I’d feed her, scream, vomit, scream, id think she’s still hungry so I’d feed her some more, scream, scream herself to sleep, repeat. She broke out in rashes when feeding, had eczema, dermatitis, was sensitive to everything. We went to the Drs and were told babies have very sensitive skin and to not use bath products, as they were likely irritating her, I was also told that “babies cry”. Every night and day I cried, cried dreading the next day, thinking this was normal and that she was just a fussy baby. Mila was a full time baby, so I had no time for Ava and I had and still do have massive mum guilt about this. I was too scared to ask for help, thinking I was an incompetent parent and I should be able to handle it, but I wasn’t and looking back I don’t know how I survived. One day I had a breakdown and took her to a different Drs (I’d previously done so for a second time and they told me she was just a colicky baby ), and I just cried and cried and cried, they then said she is most likely allergic to cows milk protein and most likely has reflux so we started to treat both and just like that I had a new baby, a baby who started to smile, a baby who didn’t constantly think she was hungry - confusing a sore tummy for hunger pains, a baby whose skin stopped peeling off and cleared up. Milas continued on a dairy free diet and we’ve continued to treat her acid reflux, at around 8 months she will be tested to see if she is anaphylactic to dairy and if not we will start the dairy ladder to see how much she can handle. #twinmomlife #twinmum #twinning #raisingtwins #mum #mumlife #twinmum #twins #sisters #fraternaltwins #twingirls #mumsofinstagram #twinsisters #multimum #cmpa

This morning I feel like I’m winning. Do you know why? Well, the babies are fed, and have clean nappies on. I’m wearing something that’s not pyjamas, have had breakfast, and a glass of water. AND. I’ve put a load of laundry on and cleaned out the cat’s food bowl. All simple tasks, but sometimes (like today ) I feel like I deserve a gold star for managing it all. Maybe tonight I’ll even manage to wash my hair 😂

LEAPS!🤯 ♡ I have the #wonderweeks app on my phone but have never really noticed a major shift in the boys when they're supposedly going through a leap. ♡ But it seems this one is different! Leap 7 is the Sequences leap, or the 'fussy phase' & they're nailing it 😱 Signs are ✅ cranky ✅ clingy ✅ notably mischievous ✅ cheerful then upset in one go So yep, my usually independent, smiley boys have been a little 'out of sorts' this past week. It's a phase though isn't it!? ♡ . . . . #hardwork #handsfull #heartfuller #mumofboys #twinmum #twinmom #twins #twinbrothers #twinsandmultiples #twinbond #babydevelopment #leaps #twinmom #identicaltwins #idtwins #10monthsold #twinstagram

Day 14 of @just4twins #multiplemumsupport2020 - lockdown life. (Still catching up 😅 ) We’ve been in “lockdown” basically since the girls had been born and even before hand. Luckily enough I live rural where there are no cases and haven’t been for a very long time, so when I do need to leave the house it isn’t the worst thing in the world, but I am super aware of everything and everyone around us. Having twins is a spectacle and there’s been occasions when I’m putting one of the girls in the car while the other sits in the pram, and in the thirty seconds I’ve turned my back on the other baby, someone is there touching her feet or sticking their head in the pram to take a peek. Queue my instant panic attack and me driving home like a crazy lady to bath my kids. Because of instances like this, we spend almost all our time at home or at parents farm. I try to make sure the house isn’t ‘boring’ for the girls and we spend time in different rooms with different toys, switching up their environment as much as I can. I do feel like the girls have missed out on play groups and meeting other little babies and me meeting other mums and getting out more, but all I want is to keep us all safe. I’m not sure how I’ll feel when the world returns to its new normal, or even what that will look like, but I will be glad to feel less anxious about taking them out and being in close proximity with other people. twinmomlife #twinmum #twinning #raisingtwins #mum #mumlife #twinmum #twins #sisters #fraternaltwins #twingirls #mumsofinstagram #twinsisters #multimum #multiplemumsupport

When you are faced with a tricky situation or problem, remember this line ‘less is more right now.’ ⁣ This approach and inner-talk will help take the emotion out of the situation. It helps you focus on what is important, and helps you remain calm and in control. ⁣ In amongst the ‘less is more approach’ remember to show loads of love and empathy. This is what helps you stay connected with your kids. ⁣ Some examples of the ‘less is more’ approach - ⁣ 1. Less fuss - a calm and measured response is all that is needed most of the time. ⁣ 2. Fewer words - try asking questions instead..... and don’t lecture. If you need to talk, say only what is needed. Less is more remember. ⁣ 3. Fewer reminders - let them experience the natural consequences. Stop hassling them about all the things they need to do. Say it once. Kids are clever. They know they don’t need to remember it all, or do what you’ve asked straight away, cause you are going to tell them a million times. Your words are precious. Use them wisely. ⁣ 4. Less yelling - take a deep breath and try to say the same thing calmly. You can be firm if you need to, just don’t yell. You will get a better response from your kids this way. ⁣ Hope this is helpful. I’m still working on all of the above points, but when I nail it I feel like a rockstar - no joke. Keep at it and remember “less is more”. #parenting #parentingquotes #raisingkids #educationtips #classroommanagementstrategies #twinmum #twins #organisedlife #parentsforlife #behaviourmanagementstrategies #classroombehaviourmanagement #raisinggreatkids #home #familymatters

Listen I can't do this Instagram shit and neither can my kids😂 none of my kids wanted to look at the camera, my twins were slipping out my hands, no matter how many times I asked Markus to smile all he was bothered about was why he didn't yet have a candy apple... SO I'LL STICK TO BEING A YOUTUBER THANKS because that's what I'm good at 😅 also the state of Markus🙈 when you see the vlog you'll understand why my child is forever covered in mud! Anyways, Happy Saturday I've just had the new imitator burger from Nandos at it was bloody beautiful so now I'm going to get these twins in bed and play Among Us all night. Peace✌🏼

3 favourite multiple Mum accounts. ⁣ ⁣ This isn’t easy! I have so many twin accounts that I follow and love and don’t want to repeat the same ones as last year who continue to be my go to accounts. ⁣ ⁣ I really love honest accounts who don’t just take cute photos, my favourite being @3ofheartsmummy_triplets She is so honest it’s raw. Sam’s stories have made me cry along with her. She loves coffee as much as I do and doesn’t take herself too seriously (please see the post of her sat on a rock in a blue and white dress if you want a laugh ). She is an amazing Mum to triplets and her accounts of life remind me a lot of how I felt the first time I had twins. She also has serious house goals and hair goals!⁣ ⁣ I love watching Mums who’ve succeeded in finding a balance of sorts between multiple Mum life and work life and for this I follow @jomiltoninteriors I want to move into her house! She is a triplet Mum and she’s also managed to turn a passion into a business. She has a great eye, style and deserves so much success. ⁣ ⁣ Then there’s @noahsarkfamily who’s a bit of both these things. Mum of 6 including 2 sets of twins. A successful businesswoman and also honest about the craziness of a big family. I don’t know how she does it all, but she does! She makes me feel very normal in all this madness. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #multiplemumsupport #multiplemumsupport2020 #lifewithtwins #twosetsoftwins #twinstwice #twinmum #boymum #motheroffive #motheroffiveboys #twins #twinboys #identicaltwins #identicalboys #ukmum #ukmumblog #twinstagram #twinnies #twinning #twinsofinsta #instatwins #identicalboys

I’ve mentioned before in my posts, but none of my kids were/are great sleepers. When Arabelle was a baby, she never took consistent naps and didn’t sleep through the night until 9 months. Well meaning people constantly told me, “sleep when the baby sleeps,” and I would nod politely, while picturing the pile of laundry, and dishes, and baby bottles that needed to be washed. Two years later along came Lyndon who really gave us a run for our money. He was colicky and never happy, even when being held. He didn’t sleep through the night until 12 months, despite spending every last dollar we had on sleep consultants, and classes, and night nurses. One day, my sleep-deprived, unshowered self dragged two-year-old Arabelle and baby Lyndon to the grocery store. An older lady stopped to chat us up, and as she read the look of exhaustion on my face she said while wagging her finger, “you know...you need to sleep when the baby sleeps.” Something inside me snapped. (I think it was my sanity 🤪... ) “Yeah, that would be great,” I snarked. “Except, he doesn’t sleep, oh and I have a two year old, I pump exclusively, so I have literally mountains of bottles.... and laundry.” I was about to start telling her about my two 120 pound dogs who were currently destroying my house from a lack of being walked when I sensed I was losing it. “Anyway, have a great day!” I said. I quickly pushed my shopping cart past her, tears welling up in my eyes. Fast forward three plus years, and I’m out walking the twins in the park. Two women stop to eww and aww. “Are they sleeping?” they ask. “Sometimes,” I shrug. One of them quips, “well, you just have to sleep when they sleep you know?” I chuckle. “Huh. I’ll have to try that sometime,” I say thinking about ALL the things at home that need to be done. 6 years of parenting under my belt, and I’m a little more collected, but even when I’m 90, if I ever tell a mom to “sleep when the baby sleeps”...well, someone please show me this post!! 😝 What piece of baby advice drives you up the wall? I know it’s something different for everyone! 😜

Dear New Mama of Twins,⁣ ⁣ Advice! You’ll be given it everyday by everyone even when you’ve not asked for it so get used to it quickly. Practice your best fake smile and learn to nod politely! ⁣ ⁣ I’ve learnt over the past 8 years that motherhood makes you feel every kind of emotion 100 times more intensely than ever before. You experience such a vast range of feelings in a day it can often leave you a little muddled. ⁣ ⁣ You will do things as a mother you often questioned others for doing and promised yourself you wouldn’t do the same. It doesn’t matter! ⁣ ⁣ The internet will become your best friend and your worst enemy and you’ll learn that your gut instinct is usually right you just need to trust it. ⁣ ⁣ There’ll be so many tears, yours and theres from joy, despair, pain, love, frustration. I’m sure you’ll cry more than ever before, learn to let the tears flow. ⁣ ⁣ You’ll think that the tiredness can kill you, but I can assure you you’ll make it through somehow. You will actually get used to living off such a small amount of sleep that when you do eventually get a full nights sleep you’ll feel worse for it (sorry ). ⁣ You will wish time away then wish it back knowing you’d soak it up a little more if you could do it again. There will be hard days and as soon as you learn not to scrutinise ‘why’ they’ll become a little easier. Remember everything is temporary, a phase, a blip, call it what you want, but it will pass and the difficult moments will fade. Most of the times nothing needs to be fixed, it’s just hard and it’s good for it to feel that way at times. ⁣ ⁣ Motherhood will fill you with more love than you ever knew possible. It will also make you humble, selfless and thankful for the experience and it might make you a bit crazy too. You’re not going to enjoy every moment but you will learn a little bit more about yourself through it all and the bad bits don’t mean you’re a bad Mama, just a normal one. Don’t feel guilty about it. ⁣ ⁣ Do whatever you need to to make it easier. Ignore the advice if you want to but learn to ask for support if you need it. ⁣ ⁣ XOXO #multiplemumsupport2020 #multiplemumsupport #newborntwins #lifewithtwins #twinmum #twinmama

Being unwell has slowed things down to a halt over here 🥴 and it reminds me of the central role I play in my home - sometimes it's actually overwhelming but moments like this make me really appreciate being able to take care of my family.🏡 Of course team work makes the dream work and my hubby single handedly looked after all the kids yesterday 💪🏽💪🏽but you know us Mamas have a certain je ne sais quoi 😉 Here's to embracing our unique gifts and roles ...and also getting better 🤒🤧⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #mumlife #wife #getwellsoon #christianmum #twinmum #3under4

Time without children is rare! I am usually covered in children with very little personal space. When I do get a moment on my own I find myself jumping between enjoying the quiet and savouring every second and feeling guilty for not being with them, worried about what I’m missing. I am never sure what to do when they’re not here with part of me wanting to run around doing all the jobs and the other part desperate to lie on the sofa and watch a box set. I always have a lazy morning in bed if someone has them overnight, it’s the one thing I miss more than anything. ⁣ ⁣ Nico and Rafael aren’t currently at pre school so I’m with them all day everyday. They’ve become a lot clingier since lockdown but whilst they’re still napping for over 2 hours a day it seems daft to put them in preschool for a full day. I am trying to find a way for them to spend some time away from me as I think it will do us all good to spend time apart. I would love to find a balance and get some time to myself but I’m not sure it will happen for a while. I know this time together is short lived and now the older 3 are at school I long to spend more time with them, so, I’m going to enjoy these busy days whilst they last. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #multiplemumsupport #multiplemumsupport2020 #lifewithtwins #twosetsoftwins #twinstwice #twinmum #boymum #motheroffive #motheroffiveboys #twins #twinboys #identicaltwins #identicalboys #ukmum #ukmumblog #twinstagram #twinnies #twinning #twinsofinsta #instatwins #identicalboys
