Are you expecting twins?Created by Jane Jackson in Age: On the way, Being a Granny-carer, Type of Granny
We all know how exciting it is when we find out we are going to be grandparents, order nothing can compare to it. Imagine how you feel when your son/daughter ring having hysterical laughter saying, ed “We are having twins!”
The first reaction is one of utter amazement, viagra 100mg of sheer wonderment. Then you come down to earth with a bump! Oh my goodness, two little ones. I know I have been there.
I remember thinking things like, how do you change two nappies at once, how do you feed two babies at once, if one wakes up does it wake the other one up? You see, with one it is just one.
If you are a grandparent experiencing the euphoria and concerns about the impending arrival of two small people, its ok to feel uncertain. I was terrified.
In a previous article I wrote about the twins I said that I took my hat off to any parent of twins, you all should have medals and free flowers for a year, at the very least. When you see those tiny people for the first time you will be speechless, actually for quite some time afterwards as well.
Don’t think it is the same as just having one it certainly isn’t. I would say learn from Mum and Dad, watch what they do, how they work this system and believe me it has to be a system, one that has to be consistent, for everyone’s sanity. A true military operation.
When you take them out, do expect everyone to say, “Oh double trouble,” yes I do mean everyone. It really does mean two of everything, two having colds, two having tummy bugs, two teething, two potty training, one spitting out food one way while the other one paints the wall with pasta sauce.
Seriously though, if you are expecting twins, try and relax and enjoy them they grow so quickly ours are two very soon and I can’t remember what life was like without them. I only have to think of them and my eyes rain a bit, I love them both , I love everything they do they are total magic and they are our twins.
There may well be two of them but they are individuals in their own right.
