I have really been missing blogging, but life just doesn’t seem to be leaving me time to do it. I keep thinking I will start making better use of my evenings, but there always seems to be something else / better to do. The kids go to sleep so well (touch wood, please don’t let this jinx it) and normally around 6.30 / 7.00 at the latest Chris and I have our evenings. Both of us have now got more energy and don’t need to fall into bed by 9.00 to catch some shut eye, so our evenings are also longer. Once the kids are down we eat dinner and that is where my best intentions fall down. You see once I sit down and relax over dinner all plans to do anything after dinner go straight out the window. Either we sit at a table or in our rocking chairs with a view to eat in which case we normally end up in some long conversation and before you know it, it’is bed time. Or we eat while we watch TV (yes I know this is a bad habit) in which case the next time I move is to the bedroom to go to sleep.
Now that we have more space I keep thinking I will start scrap booking again in the evenings, I have started teaching myself to crochet, I am newly obsessed with Pintrest, I am doing a lot of research into Montessori learning activities for the twins, and Chris and I are getting back to us, just the two of us.
I think the first year of motherhood was so all consuming to me, I had so little head space for anything other than the babes. Not to mention how it honestly felt as though I always had a baby in my arms and if I didn’t have a babe in my arms, they were desperately trying to recover from having a baby in or just enjoying not having a babe in the arms. I often think that non-multiple parents really cannot understand just how all consuming multiples are. I often think if twins are this hectic can you imagine just how crazy triplets or more must be. But the crazy has eased, or maybe I am just more comfortable in my new role. That’s not to say I am not still totally consumed, but there is space for (some) other stuff. So how is it that it’s been over a month since I last blogged again?
Priorities I guess.
