Count to 10, beanie. 

Half of the time, I’m thinking about how Cody just can’t leave the three of us and go back to work in a week. 

The other half of the time, I want him to go NOW so that I can get my routine/schedule actually working. I know he is trying to help, and I am grateful for him being here and having this family time together… But sometimes it’s like having two infants and a toddler. 

I love him, I really, truly do. Oh, but he is frustrating the crap outta me.

Ps – I will be replying to comments soon!  Thank you for all of your kind words 🙂 

Here’s another picture of my Apple and Banana

  

Pps – I think I’m delerious. I am sitting here, pumping and blogging in the dark, and I think I saw a rat or cat out of the corner of my eye. That’s just not possible. 

Sleep.

  1. My husband is home with us all summer and I just want to take the babies out on my own so I can prove to myself that I can do it and get into a good routine. I get it!! Pumping…ugh I’m so over it…it’s running my life!!!

    1. Right?! I HATE pumping with every morsel of my being. My supply is low (even with domperidone, blessed thistle, and fenugreek), it has to happen every 3 hours after my boobs go through enough torment from the girls, AND the cleanup is bullshit!

      I’m scared to take the girls out by myself, but like you, I am excited cause I want to prove I can be a Twin Supermom!

  2. Oh my gosh…they are just so adorable! And I totally get the wanting to figure out your schedule thing. I love that J comes home for lunch during the school year, but it throws a wrench in things with the daycare kids too. 🙂

    1. Aww, thanks! I think they are pretty cute too 🙂

      It’s such a dilemma. On one hand, having the hubs home is nice… But on the other, it causes a bit of mayhem (and for a Type A like myself, that’s more harm than good some days lol). In the end, though, I think we still prefer the partner at home as much as possible, regardless of the “repercussions” lol

  3. Oh they are so gorgeous! Huge smile on my face just looking at them 🙂
    Your Hubby sounds like exactly what I imagine mine will be like when we get our baby. I have accepted this fact and decided that as long as he is willing to do at least one night shift a night and change diapers I will be fine with the rest hahaha.
    I am so excited to hear from you, I was wondering how you were doing. But it sounds like you need some precious sleep so I recommend you step away from the pump and get your head on a pillow pronto 🙂

    1. Thanks so much! I have to say, I think they’re pretty cute! And we hit the lottery cause they are very happy babies on top of being so dang adorable!

      My husband is very helpful, I have to say. He does most of the diapers, he cleans all of the “blow out” messes, he feeds them, cuddles them, and can swaddle them better than I can! And to top it off – he takes all night time feedings!

      And still, he drives me fucking nuts lol.

      I hope that your hubs does all of those things for you, and more, so you have time to update us all on his annoying habits lol

  4. They are so beautiful, I have a big smile on my face just looking at them!
    Your Hubby sounds like exactly how I expect mine to be when our baby finally arrives hahaha. I have made a deal with myself that as long as he gets up for at least one night shift, changes diapers and helps with the clothes washing as well as letting me shower without interruption once in awhile I will forgive everything else hahaha.
    I am so excited to hear from you, I was wondering how you were doing. But it sounds like you are in need of some zzzz’s so I recommend you step away from the pump and find a pillow for your head 🙂

    1. You’d think I’d learn, but I’ve spilt my milk on more than one occasion. I’ve almost cried each time lol. Clearly the term “don’t cry over spilt milk” did not address the moms who are pumping!

    1. Thanks!

      My husband was home for a month as well, and honestly, I’m glad he’s back at work. I think he is too. It was nice to have him at home, but it’s hard to get into a rhythm. I’m the primary caregiver of the girls, we don’t have (or want) outside help, AND I’m a control freak – so having my husband home was more difficult than helpful. He likes to do things one way and it would frustrate me because I had my own ideas. Now that I’m with the girls by myself, we are able to get into a routine a little easier. Unfortunately, my husband will come home at night and mess the groove up a little, but he tries. I guess my only tip would be to tell your hubs exactly what you want him to do, and how, so that when he is gone, you don’t have to start all over with Luke (so to speak).

  5. I can totally get why he’d be driving you nuts. Any time J would take a sick day and then be home all day while I was home it’d throw me off my game and ultimately drive me nuts…. But when he’s not here I miss him and want home forever. At the very least he helped you make two adorable girlies 🙂

    1. I’m thankful that the girls are pretty laid back, which is allllllll my husband (I’m such a control freak lol). But yeah, the first day without him was hard, but now my princesses and I got a groove 🙂

      Hope all is well with you! Haven’t heard from you in a while!
