Moving and kids
Sorry I didn’t write any posts for the last month and half but I can tell you I was so busy during the day and at night I just wanted to sleep!!
So we moved to the new house! I can say with two crawling babies that don’t like to be stuck in the playpen it was tough to pack… they grab everything they can get and of course it’s not what you want they eat! Paper, leaves… I had to call the poison center when I saw Miya chewing a leaf off my plant! I can say I was in a panic…. Who knows if this plant is toxic or not… the poison center was very good and they are going to send me a list of non toxic and toxic plants. I will share it with you as soon as I will receive it!
Looking after twins is not easy and you need to have 6 eyes minimum! Two in front, two behind your head and two on the side… And I can tell you if there is no noise with two babies, it’s not a good sign and it almost means that something is happening… It was difficult to have a safe area for them… we had so many boxes… and boxes!! Anyway it’s done! We moved in two days and it has been very stressful for me. And when I arrived at the new house, I saw everything in the living room and I was like… it’s not over… now we have to unpack…
moving and kids = not easy!
I want to thank my parents in law for cleaning the new house and also my brother in law for helping us moving all the boxes! Without you I’m not sure how we would have done it! So a big thank you ❤️.
After three weeks in the new house, we are almost settled! I say it but I found yesterday a box of clothes!! The house is still messy but it’s getting better everyday (at least everybody can sit on the sofa, walk to their own rooms and have a nice steak in the terrace on the new BBQ!! I will speak more about that soon!!)
Mateo is now with me (no more daycare) and it’s been a little difficult to adjust for all of us. Poor guy, we moved and started preschool (in French) the next day!! It’s a lot to handle for a little guy! I can see in his behaviour that it’s not an easy adjustment for him. We are having a lot of tantrums and a lot of NO! With him all sentences start with a no!! It’s been difficult for me too! The moving was very stressful and tiring and now I have to drive Mateo every morning to preschool and as it is a little far, we don’t come back with him until noon! So no more rest for me in the morning!! And three kids is way more work than I was thinking!
It’s a big change for the girls as they sleep in the car now for the morning nap! They like to play at the play gym in the community center (so it’s cool they see other kids) by Mateo’s new school.They sleep a lot in the car and stroller so they don’t really like the crib!! The girls have their own challenges too! They have their own room now (quick adjustment by the way) and even I can say I like it, I still don’t sleep a lot! With teething (they have 8 teeth a now) and having cold (ya the season of sickness started!) the nights are very short!
I can say I’m tired! I don’t really complain about it but it’s getting hard on me lately! The kids are waking up way too much!! And the problem is that they just want mommy! (I wish sometimes daddy has a booby!! Ha ha ha!) Anyway, it’s the life of three young kiddous!
After I’ve got so much kisses and hugs by all of them that I forget I’m tired! I really love when the three kids climb on me at the same time for hugs and kisses! It’s so cool to feel the love!! Oh… I’m also working two 1/2 days a week for my old boss! I’m training the new girl and cleaning the big mess from the old girl! And I can say I love it!!
First because having a break from the kids is cool and when I come back home they are so happy to see me that I think that I have three awesome kids!! It’s a feeling of joy that is inexplicable! Mateo has a huge smile and the girls are smiling and crawling to me and they each take one of my legs (I’m glad I have two legs!!). So as soon as I sit the three kids are on me! It’s really a good moment even when you want too pee badly! You can’t escape from these lovely monkeys!
Voila, I’m going to try to write more regularly now! I skipped the 10 months old girls post but you will have the 11 months soon and it will sum everything up!
I miss you all too!
