I actually feel refreshed, energised and dare I say less burned out???
Yesterday I got to hang out with one of the twins while daddy took the other one out for some errands...
My son and I watched some old school sesame street togethor, folded some laundry and just spent some time togethor.
A couple of things popped up in my head;
The first; I did not feel guilty for not "doing" something with my son. I just enjoyed the moment. We cuddled, we watched a dvd togethor, we shared a simple task of folding laundry (well he kinda just watched...!) side by side.
The kids need a break from each other...regurlarly.
My husband and I have always tried to do individual activities on the week-ends...we have done it 3 times.
Our next family goal is to keep it simple on week-ends and go our seperate ways.
We need it.the boys need it.IT IS NEEDED ASAP!!!
As a mother of twins I am so used to being with both of them all the time that I actually experience anxiety when they are not both with me...
What I came to realize this week-end is that when we are all togethor I experienced anxiety anyway as the boys fight, the stress levels rise and BAM! Everyone is miserable and fighting anyway!
Keeping it simple=Keeping sane!!!
