I can remember barely being able to get my feet in those flip flops because my feet were so swollen. Constant doctor appointments. Trying to keep working. Feeling like I needed a nap constantly. I would get exhausted taking a shower and straightening my hair. It was a big. deal. 🙂 It is amazing how much your life can change in a year, though at least the constant need of a nap hasn’t changed.
My life now:
I normally have messy hair, no makeup, I’m wearing a t-shirt and have a cup of coffee somewhere within reach.
But with these boys around I’m amazed at my life. Seeing them learn new things. Chaos at bath time. Babies growing into little toddlers able to reach the top of tables. Singing silly songs. Pretending to smell stinky feet and always getting a giggle. Hugs. Kisses. Feeling my eyes well up with tears as I get out the next size of jammies. Watching their faces light up when they see their daddy.
Sure, there’s teething and diaper rashes and lots (and lots) of crying.
I never knew what being a twin mom would be like. But this is the best. THE best messy life ever.
And should this be the last thing I see
I want you to know it’s enough for me
‘Cause all that you are is all that I’ll ever need
I’m so in love, so in love
So in love, so in love
There’s noone luckier.
