I am mother to two rowdy, enthusiastic, vibrant, and loving four-year old twin boys. They never cease to amaze, overjoy and exacerbate me with their love and childish lunacy.
Each and every day they approach the little things in their world as BOYS, something far more identifying than I would have ever imagined. I have learned to expect the unexpected, respect their need for physical fatigue, understand that more than 10 minutes of quiet means they are making a giant mess and accept as fact that nothing they desire can be placed high enough to thwart their ambitions to get at it. (Did I really leave that purple nail polish on the mantel??)
Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined the bumps and curves on this wild ride, this life with boys.
It is a special job – mothering twins, most days I feel lucky, most days I also feel tired!
To mothers everywhere, I hope you had a grand Mother’s Day – I hope you got plenty of sleep!
Any flower that dares to bloom in our yard WILL soon become a bouquet for Mama – tiny vases are kept in the window just for holding all those sweet sweet gifts of violets, dandelions, and daffodils!
