Phew!

Last night was the first night that I had to put the kids to bed by myself. I know, lucky me having help every night. Some people aren't so lucky. It was weird that Bob had done it a half dozen times or so and I had never done it. I had to give them baths and bedtime bottles by myself. Bob has never done the bath thing though. They were actually very well behaved and it went so smoothly. Normal nights usually include whiney babies but not last night. It was so easy, like they knew I was by myself or something! Of course I'm by myself all day and it's not always so easy.


So how did I do it? I brought the exersaucer in the bathroom and put Kaylie in it. I washed Ryan and then switched them. This is where Ry got a little whiney. Usually a bath signals for him that he gets a bottle. Our routine is bath, bottle, and bed. He just had to be a little patient that's all. I also usually dry them off and get them dressed in their room but I just did everything in the bathroom so I could still be with the other baby. Oh and I also got the bottles ready before we did the baths so they were good to go. So to any future twin mommies out there---it can be done.

That's how I did it/do it too when i am alone. I always take care of the dressing in the bathroom instead of in their cozy bedroom. It's so much easier to keep them "contained". LOL
