Okay, I've decided to start another blog! This one is still all about the twins, but less about updating family about the milestones and more about sharing my "mom" stories and chattering about what's going on at home with the girls! It's not that I don't want my family to read these posts, but it is more for my fellow twin/triplets/multiple children mom friends who can sympathize with me than it is for my Marine brother and old school friends! I know, I'm crazy. I have a Livejournal that I use to talk to complete strangers and sometimes I LIKE the anonymity! I can say what I need to and not worry about it climbing around the family rumor tree like a rabid squirrel.
So first order of business: What are the twins up to these days?
That's easy. Making noise. They LOVE to make noise. Shrieking, yelling (for lack of a better term), gibbering, etc. etc. And they think it's the best game in the WORLD to jerk on toys and make them clank around and of course to shake things as hard as they can and more often than not lose grip and fling them. It's funny! They also use rolling as their only form of movement so far, but they've rolled to interesting places...
And as all teething babies are wont to do:
I can't count how many times I have to clean spit-uppy slobber off of their toys! But hey, that's life right?
Now for you experienced Moms out there: How in the WORLD do you SAHM stop yourselves from lounging around all day and just hanging out with the kids? I can't seem to find the motivation to do ANYTHING else and it is starting to become a problem. I've always been computer-obssessed, but this is getting ridiculous. I can't seem to bring myself to clean up the house until it looks like a cyclone hit the place and I rarely make myself anything healthy to eat. I'm afraid if I can't get out of this rut it is going to only get worse and I want to be up and functioning before the babies depend on me for meals OTHER than formula in a bottle. Any suggestions? Could it still be some form of depression? I mean, I've had problems with it in the past, so it wouldn't REALLY surprise me. THe problem is I have no insurance and can't afford to get prescriptions!
Til next time!
