The good, the bad, and the ugly. Again.

I did a good, bad, and ugly post once before,  and I think it's time again.

The Good.

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.

The Bad.

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.

The Ugly.

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.
