One more thing to check off

Well, I did it. I finally left the boys with a sitter. Well, kind of. I went to a Mother's of Multiples meeting tonight (kind of last minute decision) and took the boys with me. They have 2 teenage girls come in and keep the kiddos (which only happened to be my 2 and one other child). I actually left them with the sitters. Now I know, I know, I was in the next room but it's a start isn't it?

So I need to get this book about the bucket list. I really need to find that soon. I think it is such a cool idea and want to make one myself. I think it would be fun to check things off it over the years and not have just my regular to-do type lists. Hmm...if I had a bucket list I think today would have been a day I could have checked something off. That means it was a good day. :)

I am really glad I went to this meeting tonight. I needed this. I have really missed having other mother's that have multiples to talk to. Sometimes only a mother in your situation (or who has been then) is the only one who "gets it." Having twins is such a blessing to us but it does bring some challenges I was so not ready for. So having other mothers to share this with and find out how they handled the situations is such a blessing. So I am looking forward to getting to know people in the new group and getting active. I just need to be careful not to jump in too fast...I have a tendency to do that you know. I just give it my all and then often end up disappointed. I am trying very hard to take it slow and enjoy it. So there is no disappointment...just happy times.

Have a great night everyone!

Yay for you! I think it's hard to leave your kids with a sitter when aren't old enough to answer the questions you would ask them in place of a Nanny Cam. Don't feel bad about that. You did great and it's only going to get easier now that they are starting to talk.

Yeah mama! I know it is hard but it is good for all 3 of you! I know what you mean about other mom's who "get it"- I have so much more in common with other moms of autstic children than with moms of normally developing kiddos. It is a whole other ball game to have a special needs child- and having twins I imagine feels similar to this. Not every normal mom understands having 2 at once- yikes! Let us know what your bucket list looks like......

I think it's great and it's good for the boys too. It's important to get them used to other people; they'll eventually go to school and have to adjust to other adults giving them direction.

Good for you, Lee Anne! It's so good to be with people who just understand and can provide support and ideas. I can't imagine the challenges you're faced with...but I know that you're doubly-blessed! :)
