The Munchkins

Life with identical twins

Tiny Bits

on January 31, 2012

* Last week when we came in the house there was a weird chirping noise. I immediately backed everyone out and ran to the neighbors. Luckily, their 5-year-old boys are braver than I am and agreed to go in ahead. I was thinking bird? Mouse? No. It was the Dora swimming pool that the girls had dragged into the bathtub the night before. The batteries were drying out and it kept repeating it’s little saying over and over, at high speed. That wasn’t embarassing!

* Friday night I was heading out to a birthday party for a girlfriend and told the girls that Jeanine would be coming that night to stay with them. Neither of them wanted to miss a good birthday party, but I told them it was at a bar, and that meant it was only for grown ups. Delaney said “You NEVER take me to the bar!”

* Caden was looking really skinny last night at gymnastics. She’s been on a mostly yogurt and chicken diet, so I weighed her when we got home. Last time she weighed 30.8, this time 31.0! I guess the chicken and yogurt diet is working!

* We had no naps at all this weekend. Both girls fell asleep immediately at school, and they had to wake Caden up five minutes after naptime was over. I thought with such great naps they would be up until all hours last night but no. Meltdowns 10 minutes before bedtime, and immediate quiet at lights out.

* There’s a girl in their gymnastics class that just doesn’t seem to get it. I’m not sure if this is her first time in gymnastics or what, but I won’t fault her for her deliberateness with the moves. But, she doesn’t listen. At all. And it drives Delaney bonkers. And it cracks me up so much to watch Delaney go crazy at how this girl just won’t listen because of course, the girl always seems to be right next to Laney.

    Delaney going “You never take me to the bar!” is classic.
