My nephew has moved out. It was rather anti climatic, considering I've been looking forward to this day for months.. but I ended up feeling kind of bad for him, or rather bad for myself since I shouldn't have been so anxious to see him leave. Or at least that's what my inner mom is telling myself.. but hey, I'm not his mom, and quite frankly my husband and I have done all we can for him and it's time for him start doing for himself! Harsh, I know.. but I have my own huge family to worry about.
He's living in Durham, in an on campus apartment that is way too expensive. He does regret not holding out and finding something more suitable. It would make sense if he was going to UNH, but since he's working 25 minutes away in Exeter, and supposedly going to be taking classes in Stratham (another 20 minute commute) then it would have made sense to be a bit closer. I suppose it's a life lesson. He's learning, that's for sure.. I'm just hoping with all that he's learned that he'll apply it.. although I'll be surprised. I remember being his age.. and knowing everything!! Except for one important thing.... that I knew absolutely nothing!

We're in the process of having our house painted. Since we live in a duplex, we had to pick out a color with our neighbor. I gave up early on and let my husband (the artist) and our neighbor decide.. I originally had wanted a nice sage green. We are so far from that it's hardly a compromise.. but whatever, I let it happen. Our house looks like a combination of peanut butter and cornflakes. The official name is "mannered gold" Ick.. My husband loves it, but I'm not there yet. They aren't totally done though, so I'll reserve my final decision for then.. But gold?? jeez..

Me No Do It...

This is what my 3 year old said to me moments ago when I caught him drawing on my carpet. "Me no do it" Um, yea ok.. course he had marker all over his arm, and was actually holding the magic marker when I caught him.. Maybe he's lashing out.. jealous of the babies.. but then if that was the case he'd probably be drawing on them! I was in the bathroom (for a minute) when he did it. He told me that his brother did it.. right after he said he didn't. It doesn't matter that his brother isn't here.. Oh well.. at least they're washable, and it looks like the stain is going to come out..

Back to School...

My oldest son went back to school this morning. First grade.. We met his teacher last week, and she seems very nice.. and was dressed like you would expect a teacher to be dressed (not like his kindergarten teacher who dressed like a whore!) He was excited about going back, and not at all nervous.. unlike his mother. I had that familiar feeling that used to plague me when I went back to school.. Ugh.. He'll be there all day, unlike last year, and I'm sure he'll be exhausted and a bit crabby when he gets home. My youngest son is happy to have him gone, and be able to use whatever transformer he wants! The girls are napping at the moment. My mom stayed over last night and took care of them so that my husband and I could get a good nights sleep.. and let me tell you, we did! I had almost forgotten what it was like to sleep for a consecutive 7 hours! The girls have had a rough week sleeping.. at night anyway!!
I can hear one of them waking.. it's a never ending chore of nursing, changing.. nursing and more changing.. but I feel good today!!

Here we are.. me and my girls.. right after a feeding.. Last night they slept for 6 hours.. straight! I'm feeling great today! I'm hoping for a few more nights like that!

This is the mood I'm finding myself in lately.. Did I really think that being pregnant with the twins was going to be harder than caring for them??

My oldest son doesn't miss anything, I'm just thankful that he's still innocent and what he comes up with is pretty damn funny!
When we first brought home the babies he was shocked to notice that they had no teeth. I guess he doesn't remember all the complaining I did about when his brother was teething! Recently while changing one of the girls, he was standing next to the changing table, watching. When all of a sudden he said "wow, look at her penis!" He apparently forgot about the talk we had about boys and girls and the "pagina".. We're all still learning!!

There is so much more I should be doing than sitting here blogging.. The girls are taking a quick nap, and the boys are playing with their transformers. The girls are slowly coming out of their "baby coma" This is what I call the first few days after birth where all babies just want to sleep. There's was extended a bit due to their prematurity. Anyway, they are having more awake time during the day (and night) And are wanting to sit with their mom, and latch on to my boobies.. which by the way are constantly in someone's mouth! Sorry for the graphic there..
I'm exhausted.
I'd still rather them be here than inside of me. I've healed up nicely from the c-section, and I've lost an astounding 31 lbs. since their birth. Only 12 more to go! Plus another 10 or so that I hadn't lost since the last one.. I guess nursing two babies is really burning up those calories.
I'm dying for a night out.. with my girlfriends or my husband..just a night out, and maybe some help on the following day..
Well, the dishes and the laundry are calling..

The girls are 15 days old today... it's hard to believe that only 2 weeks have passed since I gave birth. It's going remarkably well, much better than I thought. They are really easy going babies, and still spend most of their days sleeping. We've taken them out a few times, we are quite the sight to see! The boys are doing well, they love their babies! I'm currently holding one of the twins and typing with one hand.. I'm definitely improving my multi tasking skills!! Here's a pic.. the boys are really into holding their babies! Cutie pies!
