Dirty Diapers, Bottles and Laundry… Oh My!!!

15 Jan

Every morning I wake up and take a look around my bedroom. I swear, I don’t know what all I do in the middle of the night, but from the disaster in front of me, I seem to change about 6 diapers per kid, make several bottles and start a nice little pile of laundry that I will only add to as the day goes on.

It is amazing to me how two little girls can create so much work for a mom. I am pretty picky with how my kids are, so our day always starts with a bath. There is nothing better than a baby who smells like baby powder and yummy lotion, not to mention being in clean clothes. What’s funny is that those clothes do not stay clean for long, and after the first poop of the day, they definitely don’t stay smelling so yummy. After baths, I lay them down and walk into my laundry room, which is full of baby clothes that either need to be washed or folded and put away. I thought that the big twins went through a lot of clothes. Clearly, I forgot what it was like when they were little.

After laundry is done, it is usually time to eat. So here come the bottles. The real challenge is when you have to make bottles with a screaming baby in your arms, but I have mastered this task! Go me!!! I have also mastered feeding 2 babies at once, and quickly checking Facebook or my e-mail… at the same time. You learn to multi-task fast! Then, my favorite… the dirty diapers. Ok, what the heck? Reese weighs about 7 1/2 pounds and Haley is maybe 7 pounds, so where in the world does all this poop come from? And to have it double is just so fun. After the poops… the cycle starts all over again.

So, bottles, dirty diapers and endless laundry is my life right now and I have to admit… I LOVE IT and would not change it for the world. Having twins is a lot of work and just when you think you get a moment to yourself, you don’t; however, it comes with the greatest joy. Two beautiful little girls that make my crazy and busy world go round!

    You are amazing and you are doing a fantastic job especially for your second time around. I remember walking away from Facebook at one point cause I just could fit it all in. Way to go girlfriend. You are amazing! Xoxo

    Ahhhhh……..fond memories 🙂 As I read your post I remembered how I felt when all the kids were little – completely and totally exhausted every second of the day and night. I can SOOOO relate to this posting and the feelings I had so many years ago. All I know is (and you know this too because of A and B) that the joy that comes from being the mom to these tiny babies far outweighs all the work and emotion that goes into caring for them when they’re so young and dependent. We’re thankful every day for you and Erik and your beautiful family. I’ll pray that you are able to steal some time each day to get some much needed sleep 🙂 Love you bunches. Twila
