Making a Splash

After a few days of trying to rearrange the schedule we are finally on track. Daily life, even as simple as what time to have lunch, is now chaotic. With twins some days everything seems chaotic though….BUT, were on target and were even getting a 3 hour nap in! Amazing, its given Scott and I plenty of time to pack, a luxury I didn’t have the last few times. Anyhow, we have been trying to occupy the boys when we do have to pack with them around so we ordered a play table…not just any play table a splash play table. Our little “merman” babies (think zoolander) love to stay in the tub for hours everyday splashing away and recently have found a second love in our pool. We decided to put it on the porch, which, we recently covered in bamboo grass to add a little privacy since the boys are frequently nakie :0 And…they LOVE it, every time they play by the glass patio now they try to open the door to get out there!

So, MOVING TIP # 1 pack the things you don’t use on a daily basis early (2-4 weeks before you move depending on how much stuff you have) this will save you time in the long run. Be sure to clearly mark all boxes with contents and instructions on where they should be put. This way you pack early (less stress) and can throw away/sell things you wont move with. An added plus…the pets and kids aren’t alarmed by the slow process:)

Holiday recap, anniversary, free time, graduation and moving! Wow, well, were at it again! Moving that is packing up the apartment and off to…well not really sure yet, haha. Scott is stressing about the changes, big time, but I love it. I have him home with me, I’m done with school, its summer, we have reliable back up housing, and what’s best is Scott doesn’t have to work if he doesn’t really want to! Anyhow…more about that later
But here’s what I really wanted to get to…my parents were nice enough to take then boys again for an extended holiday since the holiday is also our anniversary! Scott and I got to spend the fourth together and baby-less  anyhow, the cherry on top of all of this was that this morning when we went to get them we were told that in the last 2 ½ days they had only had one accident!!! And this was for grandma!!! We are amazed! Apparently, my parents had been able to reap the rewards of Scott and I spending a rough week with of diaper-less babies. So, if any of you were wondering if you wanted to attempt the 3 day method, see if it works, I would say Go for it! Looks like we’ll be taking things a little more seriously now!
After getting them in Milwaukee we went quickly and test drove a side by side stroller. It was one that I had ruled out early on in our stroller search because it didn’t have a twin model. Now it has a twin model or, because the boys are bigger (and this would be a second-stroller for us) we could get a single stroller and add a glider board for the other to stand on while we push. Since we still LOVE our city select and don’t plan on getting rid of it any time soon were in no rush to buy now but were definitely looking!
