what a bad bad

BAD blogger I am! You know I really have no excuse either...well besides the fact that Katy & Mady have hit the terrible 2's in a major way! I think I'm getting too old for the terrible 2's!!! Having 2 at once is frustrating, comical, frustrating, fun, and oh did I say frustrating?! A typical day in the wake of their ploys includes...picking up their dumped baskets of toys a bazillion times. Changing Madelyn's sheets everyday because she will NOT keep her diaper on, and will pee or poop and then it gets all over her bed. Feeding these 2 teeny tiny things all through out the day (they are always hungry or thirsty). Each girl gets at least 2 time outs in the corner per day for hitting, pushing or throwing things at one another. Which brings me to their brawling ways. I think these 2 got more spice than sugar...they are rough ones! They also enjoy pulling everything out of closests, drawers, and cabinets that are not under baby lockdown. Playing in the toilet has been a big hit, as is getting into the garbage, and throwing food from their highchairs. Udressing themselves all day long (keeping clothes on them is an endless battle). And it always amazes me that even though we have 2 of pretty much everything for them, they still fight over toys. All day long! Between the girls and Aaron I am on my toes all day long. And I've also been caring for 2 of Danielle's boys 2 days a week, and also my nephew Landen 2 days a week. So basically life is BUSY with many many children...and my poor poor house is never clean! I don't think I've even taken any photos of my kids all month! I plan on setting up my tripod for a family portrait on Easter Sunday after church. Hope to get at least one good shot of all of us together, since I don't think we've ever had one. Easter is one of my favorite days for taking lots of photos. I am hoping for sunshine for an outside egg hunt, and portrait session.

If I don't post again before this weekend...I hope everyone have a happy Good Friday, and a wonderful Easter!
Blessings!!!

I was wondering if we were experiencing the terrible 2's here and after reading your post, yep I think we are headed there..lol..My question is what do you do, how do you correct a 2 yr old? Kellar will not do time out, he will have a total drama king meltdown if I try to make him sit when he wants up..Hope you all have a Happy Easter!!!

wow, sounds very busy at your house! we just got out of the terrible twos, but i think the 3's are worse! atleast for now. of course i think any age is harder just because you have two at a time. anyway, i hope things slow down for you a little bit! glad to see a new blog up! have a great week!

This post sounds alot like my life with my three. The best part is that they are now doing things to intentionally upset each other...like steal toys and run away laughing:) But it is nice to see normal toddler behavior coming from miracle babies! I hope you get some great Easter photos and enjoy your weekend.

My daughter would always undress herself at naps and bedtime and then remove the diaper. Finally I started putting the diaper on backward so the tabs are behind her and she has a harder time pulling it off. Then, I put her PJ's on backward. I buy the zip up sleeps from Carters (cheap and they come in sizes up to 5T, I think) and put it on with the zipper on her back. She hasn't gotten undressed since! It was a bit of a hassle to dress her in a sleeper for her nap, but no more than having her wake up mid-nap by wetting herself, having to clean sheets and having a little girl that was tired the rest of the day because naptime was cut short.

Who knows, maybe you've tried this already? If not - it may work! I hope so!

Hi my name is Kristie. I just found your blog today. My daughter was born a year ago at 28 weeks. I loved reading all the updates on your sweet daughters.
