Every now and then, I like to take a look back into the MaMe Musings' archives to see what we were doing 6 months or a year ago--to see how much we've grown, learned, or forgotten...
Any guess what we were talking about almost a year ago to the day?
(tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock)
If you guessed BEING SICK, then you win!
A year later, not so surprisingly, the theme is still the same: battling our way through cold season.
Sure, the babies are bigger and their immune systems supposedly stronger, but they are still no match for the germ incubator known as daycare.
So, one year later, the current twin-festation includes an ear infection for each of them.
It's bad, but this February, we know we'll make it.
I still hate to see them sick, don't get me wrong, but it's so much different now.
I no longer freak out over every sniffle. We have become pretty good at spotting the signs of an ear infection (I still remember the shame I felt the first time they were diagnosed--we had no clue what was going on).
I know the proper dosage for tylenol and ibuprofen by heart.
We own two humidifiers and stock in boogie wipes.
I am older, wiser, stronger.
Last night I earned some more twin mommy stripes as I held a clingy, sickly Drew with one arm and put lotion, a diaper, and pajamas on Emily with the other.
And, when I run out of arms or energy? Well, one good thing about having twins? There's always a baby to help out.
Here is our future bossypants, nurse, kindergarten teacher, mommy, anything-she-wants-to-be... in training!
When not being chased by the boogie wiper, Drew enjoys playing with the train set at the pediatrician's office (aka the germ train). Given how much he loves this train, I think we'll get him one for his birthday-- one that doesn't have the extra snot and bacteria and one that he can play with between $25 co-pays.
