So we’re back home & we’re surviving.
We’re still settling out bit & pieces with the twins, but on the whole they are pretty good. They usually sleep between feeds, particularly at night, so we’re making the most of that! We’re still up a fair bit each night doing feeds & other stuff related to that.
I have wondered: “how do you find the new normal?” now that there are four kids in the house, not two? One thing that has been helpful to us is making sure that we go out somewhere each day, to remind ourselves, and to let the twins know that we have lives that exist outside of this new responsibility & concessions are things that are made by all parties in any good relationship.
On our first day home we started with a walk down to our favourite cafe.
Yesterday we walked down to a local French outdoor fair (we’d been warned that if you have twins you’ll be stopped regularly so people can stare & chat to you. Having a second pram behind it with another two younglings seems to get more comments, 5 seconds after we’ve passed….).
Today we made it down to Avoca and the kiddy park.
I’m sure we’ll have some sleepless nights ahead, which may challenge our little plan, but so far it’s been good.
A couple of pics for the eager…
