Busy (an Understatement)



I take my hat off to all parents (let alone single parents) of twins. Should anyone need this Mum/Auntie tonight you’ll find her knitter-ing and rocking in the corner, sipping on something calming and therapeutic and not tea.



They didn’t look this clean by the end. My first-ever, year-old, formed doll (who upon completion, prompted an involuntary splutter from the Mr – so unfortunate is her hair), also barely survived to tell the tale.

You certainly know you are alive with twinnies! I think mine work as a team to achieve their ends...they are 21 months and it is scary to imagine their teenage years! Lisa.

Oh yes, I usually drive home from my sisters and curl up in a little ball on the couch exhausted. I don't know how she does it!

By the way....Just wanted to let you know that we've given you an award. Please stop by our blog to check it out and, if you are inclined, pass it along to some other great blogs. Kind regards, Lisa.

Whew! I'm exhausted just thinking about it. And I'm also glad it's you and not me :-) They look so sweet on camera, but I'm pretty sure that's where my love for them would stop :-)

I sip therapeutic liquids (not tea) and I only have 1 munchkin...you're a brave woman!

Aaaah, the small ones... I swear that when kids are at their cutest is also when they are at their most devilish! It is a trick of evolution to keep us loving them so much despite their shenanigans

Well done on a double kid-wrangling day!

I love the dolly.

Yes , isn't it difficult to drink something reviving when your teeth are clenched! That doll , obviously a brave soul, looks a bit like me on bad days .....what's wrong with electric hair ?!

You're a braver woman than I for taking on that job for the day!!! Yikes!

Your poppit looks like a cool cat in her box-car with those sunglasses (although I think I prefer the swimming goggles).

Busy how? Winter festival, parent interviews, class festival, school camp, and that's just with the older child - grrr!

Bring on the holidays!

Oh and your bum did NOT look big in that recycled sample - not at all, nooooooooo-way!

Pin on that medal and sound that fanfare ... am impressed wiht the boxes though ... I loved playing in boxes .. still would, I think if I could find one big enough - I think your doll's hair is way cool, coifed even!

Thanks for thinking of us Tania.

From a busy but happy Mother of twins who does drink lots of tea... and other liquids!
