Agree, agree, agree!
In particular the point about developing at their own pace. A pace which, despite having been womb-mates, will perforce be different. After all the worry and should-I-call-the-Health-Visitor dilemmas, Charlotte and Romilly are now Olympian walkers. In opposite directions. At speed.
Ditto toilet training. I have optimistically bought two potties…and then I thought, why am I pushing this? My house is messy enough as it is (we have builders in) without adding little deposits everywhere. I’m sure they’ll let me know when they’re ready.
Anyway, that’s it for now. Apologies for being off grid – we moved house (note to other twin parents, DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE MOVE HOUSE THREE TIMES IN THEIR FIRST TWO YEARS!) and are doing renovations and also went on a delightful but stressfully timed two week holiday AND I’m now back at work!
But I will blog again, fear ye not. If nothing else to share the horror comic strip that is fiercely independent but manually challenged toddler twins trying to feed themselves chocolate mousse…
