This week has been such a busy one that even finding the time to look though my old photos has been difficult so instead I’m sharing one of my twins from a few days ago that pretty much sums up our week. Lucas had chicken pox a couple of weeks ago so I knew it was coming the twins and sure enough they started with the dreaded spots on Sunday morning. Although it is good to be getting it all out the way I think it may have been a little easier if they had them a few days after each other. They haven’t really been ill before and it’s hard to have to comfort both of them at the same time. They have both been totally covered and very clingy, it’s been horrible to see them so upset but I think we are over the worst now. I was so relieved to get them out of bed this morning and see smiles and little chatters rather than cries.
This morning I was giving the twins their breakfast when Boo started crying, this hasn’t been unusual, obviously he’s uncomfortable and doesn’t really know what to do about it. All of a sudden Bear reached over and started rubbing his back, it was the sweetest thing and the first time they have ever really done anything like that. Having twins you always think they are going to be close, which they are, but when they are small they are just so used to having the other one there sometimes they don’t even show signs they are aware of each other! Most of the time they are just squabbling over a toy or trying to push each other out the way to get on your knee. This little moment was such a small thing but after a tiring few days it was especially lovely to see.
I’ve been pretty quiet online this week as the days have been so hectic and I’ve been ready to take myself off for a few early nights. Hopefully this will be the last of the germs for a while, it feels like there has always been someone ill for the last few months. I think we need to plan a Grand Day Out for when everyone is recovered; a family day for us all to look forward to.
