What Happens

Things That Happen The First Week You Have a Newborn with Twin 4 Year-Olds

1. The twins find your camera.

2. The twins' bedroom has a mysterious hurricane go through it...every day. 

3. They find those purple and black tights you forgot you had.

4. The twins need spectators for their fashion shows- they wear inside-out and upside-down costumes to get extra attention. They also pose and do slow motion plays in costume.

 5. The newborn poops and pees twice in his first bath- to the sheer delight of the twins.

6. Whoever can feed the newborn best is the best big brother.

 7. The newborn tries to nurse on one of the twins.

8. The newborn gets coaching tips from his three coaches while working out in the baby gym.

9. You spend all day making cow costumes with the twins in between newborn feedings.

10. One twin can't find his pool pass so he draws one on the whiteboard.

11. The No Boys on the Table rule isn't enforced.

12. Pajamas stay on until unspeakable times of the day.

13. But mostly you feel blessed to have three healthy, happy boys.


  1. Please, please wear those black-and-purple tights next time I see you.

  2. Just got to read this... and I'm so glad I'm not the only one with a newborn that has a toddler in pj's in the afternoon with a hurricane of toys in his room! Thanks for keeping it real! ;) P.S. Teddy is too cute!

    1. Oh, I keep it very real, Emily. ;) Today I'm attempting to take all three boys outside for a walk by myself. This will definitely be real...and I'm guessing it will take at least an hour and a half to get out the door.
