The twins can buckle their own car seats!! When Jackson was born, and I had to fit three car seats in my minivan, I put both the twins in the back. I figured I wasn't about to put Jackson's carrier in the back, and if I was putting one I might as well put both. After all, I was going to be climbing in the back no matter what. So after 11 months of climbing into the back of the van every time we went anywhere--I don't have to anymore! Believe me, this is something that makes me so happy.
In a bit of seriousness, parenting these two can be hard. I don't know if it's the fact that there are 2 of them, their age, or just their personalities, but they try my patience. Let me just say, I love them to pieces and most of the time they are great, but they also have a streak. They are destructive (you should see our walls and my parents' walls too), they won't sit still (every week, church is a nightmare), and their temper tantrums embarrass me. And being consistent is hard because I feel like I am outnumbered. I am trying every day to be a better parent to these two. To all my boys.
I don't want to gross anyone out, so let me keep this brief. One of the twins is not quite #2 potty trained. We had a poop catastrophe this week that involved two baths, one bathtub disinfecting session, carpet cleaning, and an extra load of laundry. Gotta love being a mom.
