Makes my Monday - super trolleys and sibling playtime.
Playing along with Cheryl - what a great way to start the week.
Many moms of multiples will know that it is very difficult to go grocery shopping with the brood - in fact I have resorted to Internet shopping and the farmers market and the odd weekly items that are little enough to fill the baskets below the twin's stroller (not very much indeed). But these are relatively new to South Africa, and brand new at my favorite Pick 'n Pay. At least I can fill a medium sized trolley and The Little Miss has found a perch on the handle part. This really makes my Monday.
And making my Monday too, is sibling playtime. I really pity the older toddler siblings of multiples - they have a tough time adjusting, a lot of attention away from them and a team ganging up to them. But I have noticed over the last week or two that as soon as one of the twins are occupied with someone or something else, The Little Miss will take her chance to have a game with the other one. It really makes my day to see her interacting with them on a one to one level. We are actively encouraging this.
Yesterday afternoon these two were having a ball while Little man L took a longer nap. And yes, we have a triceratops (according to A), a rhino (according to Hunter ) or mommy's little unicorn (can't the other two count?) in the home - a great egg from a huge fall on Friday afternoon.
And last week these two were seriously cuddling and playing while Little Man C was busy reading with Lucy.
So what makes your Monday?
