So glad I don't have twin toddlers!

Today, along with babysitting Little Baby, I'm also babysitting my other neighbor's 3-year old until noon. He is a cute kid and great friends with Toddler, but getting them together, especially on a cold rainy day when they can't go outside, is just chaos! They are little balls of energy zooming around the house, leaving a trial of destruction in their wake. Why is is it that when you get 2 normally well-behaved toddlers together their energy is multiplied by 100?! And although their are 2 sets of ears, they listen only 1/2 as well?! And of course today had to by rainy and freezing, otherwise I'd take them out to play in the yard and let them run out their energy where they can't make so much mess. Good thing Baby and Little Baby are being so good today or I'd be going insane. Just one more hour, then maybe I can send Toddler off to play at his friend's house and I can pick up the pieces of my house.

Just so you know, it is INSANE to have toddler twins. I have 8 year old 6 year old and 3 year old twins! Our house is CRAZY!!!! Fun, but crazy!!!

They feed off each other, don't they? Mine aren't twins--in fact, the oldest has just realized that the youngest might actually be a little person--and still they seem to cry together, wake together, cry together, eat together, cry together. I fear this will only escalate...

Yes a house with twin toddlers is crazy, but I think over time you get used to it? Yesterday I had to clean up three messes and take care of someone that fell off the bed. Everyday is full of suprises with twin toddlers, that's for sure!
