ok, the most fantabulous thing about having twins is....
THE TWIN CARD
I play this most exalted of excuse cards whenever I don't feel like doing something. which if you are me, is most usually always.
don't feel like trekking out to a house party or other social gathering? "uh, sorry, can't make it... the twins don't travel so well"
don't feel like making phone calls at work? "oh, gee, the twins kept me up all night, I'm really not coherent enough to speak"
don't feel like taking a shower? "oh those rascally twins, no time for hygiene today. Nary a tooth was brushed"
don't feel like talking to your husband? "can't really pay attention to your woes from work, honey, those nutty twins ran me ragged today"
This works on anyone, except for other MoMs. If you play this card on a fellow club member, though, they are usually nice enough to realize that you just don't feel like doing whatever it is and most likely won't call you out on it.
Because it might be true. Or you just might be anti-social like me. But for me, it's awesome. I now have a built in excuse for being a fat lazy lay about. I used to blame my mom ("oh, sorry, I can't drive you all to the party, my mom won't let me"), now I can transfer it to my kids.
little positives here people. little baby steps. since no one sleeps through the damn night and nursing is the #1 nightlife choice for the 9-12 month old set.
