Every night they climb onto my lap in our rocking chair, that once seemed so large when they were born. I spent so many sleepless nights in this chair after they were born, one in each arm, tucked into my robe with pillows propping up my arms while trying to keep them warm in the long winter nights.
I struggled alot when the twins were born, I didn't cherish every moment like other mums tell you you're supposed to, I just barely survived the Newborn stage and all I wanted was that the next day was just a tiny bit easier for us all. It's hard looking back on that time as it brings back so much PTSD sometimes I forget the major details of the first 3 months of their lives because it was too much for me in more ways than one.
But now I can sit in our rocker together, all piled on and just barely fitting on together -- and I'm excited to read our 'Little Miss and Mr' books before bedtime and hear them laugh and giggle and snuggle into me all excited to hear the rest of the story. Just remember you don't have to love and take in every moment of being a mum or mum of multiples, it's not all sunshine and rainbows infact it's less rainbows and sunshine than 💩 and tears. But you're a mother to however many children and you've got this and when you don't there's family, friends even mothering communities to help pick you up when you're down. You're stronger than you think 💪🏻 #TwinMomma #Twins #twinmum #momlife #twinmumlife #love #ptsd #anxiety #3yearoldtwins #motherhood #MumLife #love #twinsofinstagram #twinsanity #twinspiration #ToBeAMother #ToBeAMum #twinstagram
