I’m back! And bigger (and hopefully better) than before.
Guys, we had another set of twins. No joke! The boys were two and a half when they were joined by twin sisters A & R. (Not to be confused with one of the boys, also known on the internet as “R”, so, um… hmm, didn’t think this through. We’ll call her R2.)
We wanted a girl, and we got two. The whole thing is ridiculous and wonderful. I also changed the name of my blog to twinsquared. Because I have twins, squared! (Math, it turns out you do use some of it in adulthood.)
It also means we had four kids in two and a half years. It’s as chaotic and crazy as it sounds. In fact, the reaction I get most frequently is “Wow, whenever I feel like I’ve had a hard day, I just think about your life and how you must cry yourself to sleep every night/drink buckets of wine to cope/hate everything, and then I don’t feel so bad!” (Memo to these well-meaning(?) friends: I have KIDS, not cancer. I chose this! But thanks for your concern…I guess??)
Today, D&R are four, and A&R2 are nearly two. And I finally, finally feel like I have enough functioning brain cells to return to blogging. And wow do I have some from-the-trenches parenting tales (and fails) to write about.
So sit back, relax, and let me be your cautionary tale.
