At the end of this month my twin girls will turn six years old. Their tastes, characters and personalities have really developed now and OMG how different they are. I actually don’t mean just the odd thing that is different they are at the best of times polar opposites. The last few weeks I have been doing the school run full-time because I have been unable to work because of my recent health scare. When we arrive home from school, the first of their differences becomes very obvious. I tell the girls to go and change out of their uniforms,… [Read More]
My twin girls are going to be six years old next month, very scary. I always wonder where the time has gone. It goes so quickly. It really doesn’t seem like yesterday that they were born six weeks early and had a spell in special care. 27 days in fact, which at times felt like 27 years. So next month they will be six years old and every year they have had some sort of party. Every party so far has been a party at either a local church hall where we hired a bouncy castle or at a soft… [Read More]
I have written many times how different my five year old twins are, but the older they get it’s becoming more obvious how different in character and personality they are. This has become more apparent to me in the last nine months or so. Personally I don’t think it’s a bad thing, because although being twins is something they will be all their lives, they also need to be individuals with their own sets of friends and goals in life. Here are some examples of how different they can be. 1. School This is one of the most obvious differences… [Read More]
For five very long years CBeebies is permanently on in our home during the waking hours of our wonderful five year old twin girls. When oh when will this end, please tell me it will be soon I can’t take any more of the Twirlywoos, Bing and Postman Pat. No, wait I actually look forward to Postman Pat at 7.30am, it starts my day off just perfectly, I can go off to work in the knowledge that Pat saved the day again. Of course this is what all the posties in the world do everyday. The world would be a… [Read More]
We are coming to the end of the first half of the first term of year 1 for my five year old twin girls. Oh how they are changing! At times I completely fail to understand what they are talking about! On Monday just gone the girls had their school photographs taken. The conversation I had was interesting to say the least. It reminded me that the girls are only five years old and sometimes are very limited with their explanations about their day at school. So I asked how did school go today and did you have your school… [Read More]
My five year old twin girls are now in Year 1 in school, and the annual Scaries and Fairies disco for Halloween was on Friday just gone at their School. We have been the previous two years and I remember vividly the first year when the girls were in nursery that they lasted about 15 minutes before crying and getting upset at all the scary costumes and decorations and we ended up leaving. Last year there was definitely an improvement and we managed to stay for the entire disco, and the girls got involved in dancing and the competitions, but… [Read More]
So what’s a five year olds job in life? Demanding your time of course, and I get it in stereo with twins! There is not a day that passes, in fact a minute that passes, in which I don’t hear mum or dad being called out along with them asking if they can I have this or do that. It’s constant! If it wasn’t so constant and demanding it would be funny, because it’s not funny. I have often wondered what makes children of a certain age so demanding of your time? Surely there comes a time where they just… [Read More]
My five year old twins spent a number of days making masks from balloons and newspaper, with their mum. This is the finished product and it’s very scary or least I think so Haha! Actually I think they still look very cute although they could be extras in a horror movie. In this world of overdone technology it’s really nice to see kids do crafts, and get so much satisfaction of making something completely by themselves. Sometimes the old pastimes are so easily forgotten, with our online world.
