Confessions of a Twin Mom

 Confessions of a Twin Mom
by Emily Pepka
Sometimes...I don't make dinner on purpose so my husband either has to make something or we have to go out/get take out.

Sometimes...I go for walks just as an excuse to chit chat with neighbors aka ADULTS!

Sometimes...I leave their clothes on for a few spit up episodes before I change them. Because I just can't be changing outfits every 10 minutes.

Sometimes...I leave the housework undone and laundry piling a little too high, just so I can have extra time to cuddle with my munchkins.

Sometimes...I don't eat lunch. Ok, usually
I don't eat lunch.

Sometimes...I let the twins cry a little longer than I probably should, just so I can sit down for just 1 second longer.

Sometimes...I sneak out of bed before the twins so I can enjoy a cup of coffee before the craziness begins. Sadly, they can usually tell I went downstairs and they freak out. How do they know?? Not ok.

Sometimes...I let my babies watch TV because I know it keeps them entertained and happy (usually) and then I can catch up on my DVRed shows while pumping for the 109385081305 time of the day.

Sometimes...I use tummy time as an excuse to wear them out so they'll nap.

Sometimes...I let them nap in their swing, just so they'll nap for a long time and I can get something done.

Sometimes...I just want to lay in bed all day cuddling with my babies. Because I'll never get these moments with them back and I want to soak them all up as much as possible.

Always...I love being a mom of twins :) Yes, I have my hands full. Yes, they're absolutely worth it.
