Babysitting Twins


Babysitting twins is such an adventure! Especially when those twins happen to be two! Even more so when you happen to have a one and two year old of your own! Our good friends from church have some very delightful twins who are very sweet little people most of the time and pretty easy to babysit. Just don't give them crayons (I learned the hard way) and try to make sure everyone is sharing and playing fairly. Little Kennedy and Carsen are very easy to babysit as far as kid temperment and personalities go but it still takes a ton of energy to have that many littles running around, literally, underfoot. When their mom comes to get them it's a little bit like trying to herd rabbits to get their coats on and out of the door before someone runs away or takes their coat off or escapes down the hall. We went on a walk today and that meant getting hats, gloves, shoes, and coats on 4 little people and KEEPING them on those little people.
For those of you mothers who daily keep up with four kids 3 and under, you have all my admiration and awe. In the meantime, where I once thought two was hard, I now consider it a piece of cake!

Yeah, I often wonder if I would have any energy left if I were to have any more kids!
