Almost Christmas

We are almost there...CHRISTMAS 2010!!!  I can't wait to watch all my boys open their presents this year!  Christmas is my favorite time of year, decorating the tree, the house, baking, and eagerly waiting to see the kids open their presents.  This year it feels a bit different though, no presents under the tree, no baking going on, and no snow.  Here we are mid December and only a touch of snow on the ground, only a couple days of cold weather, and we don't dare put presents under the tree because the twinadoes would shred the paper worse than they are shredding mamas Christmas tree!!!  We are going through a tough time here with the twins not listening and getting into everything.  It takes every ounce of energy I have just to keep them from knocking the tree over, they will NOT leave it alone. Time out after time out and still they do not listen to LEAVE THE TREE ALONE.  Funny thing, okay soooooo NOT FUNNY, but there is no ornaments left towards the bottom of my tree, there are several ornaments that have not survived.  I have spent most of the last couple of weeks enforcing time outs, I can not even count the amount of time outs that we have been one has been a crazy few weeks.  This is so beyond terrible twos, I had no idea two little boys could be so very naughty!  It is starting to pay off, they are beginning to grasp the concept of time out, but the battle is not over yet.  I never would have guessed that having twins would be quite so tasking, exhausting, and so very stressful.  I now have two pack n' plays in my dining room, because one time out spot was just not enough, baby gates get shuffled to block the kitchen, and doors must remain closed.  I am so ready for this stage to end, my days are crazy, my nights are exhausting, and my mind is FRAZZLED.  "Twin brain" is not even the words for it, I forget things, misplace things, and swear I do things that I don't, stress is an everyday occurrence but this too shall pass just like the sleepless nights...I HOPE SOONER than later.  Still I love being a twin mama, but never would I have dreamed my life would change so much.  I spend most my day cooking, cleaning, and chasing them out of all the things they can't get in to.  There is so little time to just spend and enjoy with them, or big brother Ethan.  I try to take every moment that I can just playing with them, or just hanging out with Ethan, but I am truly spread way to thin.  I just tell myself someday I will look back on this and laugh, and maybe even miss it a bit, crazy I know but surly I will.  Right now I just can't wait for soccer to start in a few months so I get to have some much needed one on one time with Ethan.  I am looking forward to coaching his team and having that time to just do something fun with him, he loves soccer, and loves that mom gets to coach him.  We have such great conversations on the way to practices and games!!!  So I am waiting for Christmas to come and go, waiting for spring sports, and waiting for more fun times to come!!!
