PostHeaderIcon It’s 2013 and I’m way behind cause I have 3-year-old twins

Things have been moving non-stop for the last few months. It’s not like I don’t spend time sitting on the couch absorbing a couple of my favorite shows, but my down time is necessary for rebuilding the patience cells that are depleted throughout the day. My boys take some serious patience. They are amazing and imaginative. I am constantly in awe of the things that they say and do. It’s in between all of the good stuff that we have excruciating tantrums filled with blood curdling screams and big tears.

The tough part about 3-year-old twins (or any 3-year-old for that matter) is that you never know when they are going to strike with what. There are a cast of characters including whiny, nudnick, sweet, cuddly and crazy tantrum crybaby. One of my boys has an incredible knack for repeating the thing he wants over and over until you get mad or your give it to him. He commits to it and settles in. This can all fall smack dab in the middle of a day with new experiences and perfect behavior.

I am learning to keep my goals for the day simple and loose. I am learning that 2013 will be my chance to redefine how I live, make and accomplish my goals. It’s all going to happen (whatever that is), but I might have to stop along the way to relax or debate with a screaming toddler.
