Just Another Day…..

Posted on

I’m only writing this post so that we have something to look back on to remind us what these early weeks are like.  There is nothing remarkable really about this day.  There are many many families with days like this.  This one is ours though so here goes.

2.45am to 3.15am – 1st breakfast for I & E  An early start to the day but depending on whether you can pull off the tandem feeding thing its back to bed by 3.15am.

6.45am to 7.15am – 2nd breakfast for I & E  As your head hits the pillow after 1st breaky they seem to be up again for a top up!  This time its up and downstairs to start the day.

7.30am to 8pm – Breakfast for L  Big sis is up at a very sensible 7.30ish for her breakfast of milk, Cherios and toast.  Then its an hour of play time.

9.00am – L’s morning nap  Amazingly after a hearty breakfast L usually has a little nap to get her ready for the day!  Its a very sensible idea.  Breakfast – little nap – off to work.  Sounds good!

10.00am – L’s up and running  Refreshed and ready for action L is up and off to one of her social appointments.  Swimming, play group etc etc.

10.45am to 11.15am – Elevens’s for the girls  Next feed for the girls.

11.30am to 12.00 L’s lunch time  After I & E its L’s lunch time which can take a while!

12.30ish – L’s lunchtime nap!  Back to bed for big sis for an hour or so.  Busy morning for the lady of the house!

1.30pm – L is up for the rest of the day  A busy social calendar but it can be a long afternoon from here on in!

2.45pm to 3.15pm I & E late lunch  As L is up and about this one can be a bit trickier!

3.30pm to 4.00pm – L’s second lunch/early tea  After a generous 30 mins off and a cup of tea its L’s time to eat again!

5.30pm to 6.00pm – L’s milk time.  When she can be bothered that is!

6.00pm to 6.30pm – L’s bath time.  One of L’s fave times of day.

6.30pm L’s bed time.  An amazing sleeper our girl.  long may it continue!  Thats the last peep until the morning.

6.45pm to 7.15pm – I & E’s tea.  Nice and quiet this one.  All is calm.

7.30pm – Us time.  Something to eat and a quick catch up.

8.30pm – K’s off to bed.  Depending on the rota for the night!

8.30 to 10.45 – Bit of down time.  Keeping the twins occupied and catching up on the Sky+ library!

10.45 to 12.00 – Late night feed.  Takes a while this one and at the mo the twins are hard to settle.  Its dark and quiet so time to be awake of course.

And there we go another day done!   The hard part is getting anything else done of course! We owe a big thank you to the Special Care Unit for getting I & E onto a four hourly feed pattern that has helped maintain our sanity!

    Wow, you really have your hands full, but your children sound delightful!

    I found your blog via MN and will be reading avidly from now on.

    I don’t have multiples myself, but I’ve always had a feeling that one day I might have twins….
