I only have one set of arms…

” Hang on a jiffy, baby” was my catch cry when my boys were little. Caring for two babies can be a tricky business when they both need you at the same time. They both learnt to be somewhat patient and I in turn learnt very quickly that babies do not suffer ill effects if left to cry for a bit. Leaving one crying was at times a necessity but for the most part we managed brilliantly, all three of us learning as we went; four of us when their Dad was home from work and on weekends. With Dad around things were easier, one person per baby, but I loved my time with just me and them. They were a long time in the making (ten years) so I was determined to relish every moment. I cherish the memories of those years before school when I spent all day with my best mates. It was always ironic that on the rare occasion I went somewhere without them, I would be greatly looking forward to some “me time” , but as soon as I left the house I couldn’t wait to get back to my babies… Things have changed in our house now, with my request for something to be done being met with, ” in a minute Mum” by both boys… A bit of revenge from their babyhood years perhaps…
