Someone recently asked me how I was doing, and I responded with, “Four kids are keeping me busy!” They gave me a strange look and our conversation went a little like this.
”Yeah, it’s been a little bit of an adjustment.”
”Huh, does it really seem like four kids?”
”Uh… (I didn’t know how to answer) Yes?”
”Hmmm… I’d think it would be more like three.”
”Because you have twins, they’re the same age.”
A surprised laugh escaped my mouth and I replied while grinning,
“Having twins makes it more like having eight! We call them seek and destroy, because they literally destroy EVERYTHING when I’m not looking. I’m breastfeeding, and it takes up most of my day, and the twins take full advantage of every minute I’m strapped to the couch! My newborn hasn’t been the challenge, but my three year olds have!”
The person was genuinely surprised. And I left chuckling to myself.
Cannon and Cruiz have recently kept us on our toes. When two little minds think so much alike and take on the world together, they sure do know how to leave their mark. Good thing we love them so much, because they will without a doubt leave us with gray hair. But I honestly can’t wait to see what these two accomplish, together, and separately.
We love you boys.
Life is nothing short of an adventure with the two of you.
