Twins Group

Today has been good! We had yet another morning of both boys sleeping in until 6:45am, and then after breakfast, we all headed to the shops to grab a couple of things...and a coffee/hot chocolate J Cohen and Kason fell asleep on the way home and stayed asleep when we put them in their cots. Cohen slept for an hour, and I had to wake Kase up for Twins Group (whoever said never to wake a sleeping baby obviously didn't have twins!). Twins Group was good today! There were two sets of older teenage twins there and one singleton. They LOVED playing with the babies (two sets of 1-year-olds and one set of 3-year-olds), and it was nice not to have to watch both of them every minute. One thing that did annoy me though...we found out today that we got a grant from the council...which the women with the school-aged twins have decided that they will use to get a crèche worker to look after the little ones. They didn't bother consulting with those of us who actually HAVE the little ones. It pisses me off that they just decide that because that's what they wanted when their twins were little, that's obviously what we all want. I much prefer to watch my boys interacting with the other twins. And I know for a fact that I'm not the only one.
There is another Twins Playgroup (also through the SA Multiples Assoc.) which is held weekly, and not too far away. I'm going to call about that one tomorrow!

  1. So glad you've got people to meet with who "get" the full-on-ness of twins. Sounds absolutely wonderful!

    Sending hugs across the states.
