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!
