My Twins are Six!

twins 6

This past weekend we did some celebrating - my twins turned Six! Six is a pretty big number, it's like overnight they turn into school-age children. Taller, stronger, more independent and mature ... Hold me! I'll post more about their birthday soon, yet truth is, I haven't even had time to even go through their photos yet. *someone* {me} decided it would be a good week to do an impromptu bedroom renovation. … [Read more...]

Finding Her Voice #BarbieProject

Finding-Her-Voice-BarbieProject

It's been such an eye opening experience to be the mother of twins. While all my girls are complete individuals and I recognize and celebrate that, any parent of multiples will say that you really notice personalities when you have two of the same age. After all, they are always with you and most oftentimes, always together. My Sophia, Twin A, is dominant in every way. Her boisterous and outgoing personality was … [Read more...]

Twin Jealousy is Causing Her Teeth to Fall Out. Maybe.

toothless-sophia

It was our last day in Turks and Caicos when my little twinlin Sophia came running up to me, "Mom! My tooth is loose, my tooth is loose!" Ahhh, what a milestone! A first twin tooth, loose, in Turks and Caicos. There's one for the baby book ... er, if I ever work on them, that is. I'm a total failure in that department, but that's another story. Of course with the wiggling of Sophias tooth, twin competition had to … [Read more...]

Bittersweet

twin-toes

For the first time ever, I walked into the twins bedroom to find this ... They used to share a crib when they were first born, yet since have always slept in their own beds {there's two in the room that they share}. So, this event truly warmed my heart. This is love, true sisterly love. I will cherish this photo always. .... but That very same night the twins asked to have separate baths. Again, another … [Read more...]

The Messes Twins Make

twin-messes-tammi-roy

  There's two to wash, There's two to dry; There's two who argue, There's two who cry. One's in the mud, Having a ball; The other holds a crayon... Another marked wall. Some days seem endless, My patience grows thin. Why did God choose me To be a mother of twins? The answer comes clear- At the end of the day, As I tuck them in bed And to myself I say... There's two to kiss, There's two to … [Read more...]

Get Outside and Play!

katie-mychaos-winter-2014

  Finally! Finally we have a break from the freezing weather and I can say those words I love to speak ... "Get outside and play!".     In no way do I believe that Spring it on it's way, yet this break in weather sure makes a person think it is. Back and forth, back and forth - like taking off a bandaid slowly. Just get on with it already, rip it off and bring on the next season! … [Read more...]

Flashback

2011

  The other day I took the twins to a brief doctors appt and snapped a photo with my phone. I then realized that I took a similar photo in 2011, only they were wearing gowns. Flashback!     Let's take a minute to celebrate the technological advancements in phone cameras, the general look of our doctors offices and the improvement in my own shutter skills {what up 2011?!}. The twins? … [Read more...]

Snow Day

snow-day-myorganizedchaos-ww

  Winter is officially here {photos from last week}. This snow day could be any ordinary day for the next 7 months ... *sigh*. ... just thought I'd explain that in case you thought the title of 'snow day' meant that the schools were closed. HA! I don't think they've done that since I was a kid. Now it's like: "Oh, it's -40 degrees? Come to school!!". <~ said in my stern voice, … [Read more...]

My Twins Started Kindergarten!

twin-sisters-myorganizedchaos

  My kids didn't start school at the same time this year, my oldest began Grade 4 three days before her sisters. It was really odd having this staggered 'back to school' routine, I really can't say I liked it at all. The worst part was that it really confused the twins, they kept asking why their sister was at school and they weren't. We all know how repetitive this gets {worse than 'are we there yet'}, so when … [Read more...]
