My babies don’t poop rainbows

I have been thinking a lot lately about how positive and uplifting most of the things I post are. I like capturing moments where both of my children are happy and smiling. I like the giggles. I like it when they go to sleep like they are supposed to – like they usually do.

But that isn’t always the case.

Sometimes they don’t go to sleep like they should. We have been going through a big developmental leap lately (thank you, The Wonder Weeks app) and my babies are totally off kilter. When they are both screaming at the same time for no apparent reason, I try to remind myself that they are obviously just as frustrated as I am.

Sometimes they don’t nap. Ok, they do eventually, but it takes awhile.

Sometimes they like to be awake at 2:30 am. And why wouldn’t they? It’s not like mom and dad need sleep to function. We have proved that multiple times.

Having twins is hard. They really don’t poop rainbows (yet – wait until we start solid foods). I was thinking about posting a picture of their diaper pail to prove it, but here is this instead.

So just know, that when your baby cries, when you have to walk away for a minute, when nothing you are doing seems to work, when you question your ability to parent and maintain the appearance of sanity, you’re not alone.

I don’t think that any of them poop rainbows, but I could be wrong.
