Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

My twins are 5 years old. I love them to pieces but lately they have been driving me freaking crazy! Maybe because I am pregnant but I don't know they seem to love and adore the baby and talking to it in my belly! They act on each other and fight all the time. I have to literally put them in the corner to get them to stop fighting!

I am going to look into karate and swimming this summer they enjoy both of those so maybe that will help and maybe once they start Kindergarten in the fall they will enjoy having more time out of the house and away from each other! Right now they only go to prek 2.5 hours a day 4 days a week.

If any of you have twins around my twins age or older and they act/acted crazy how do or did you solve their wildness!

S/n my twins have speech delays but I ASSSURE you they get it and they talk good now but still have a lot of jibberish talk at times.

I just hate always feeling like I am yelling or punishing someone that is not the kind of mom I want to be. I do as many activities as we can at home (I live in Pa and the weather sucks right now) but we do board games, color, puzzels, I have them dance to songs on their leap pads and have them help me with dinner and chores and so on. I just don't know sometimes what else to do to help them get along and what to do to get them to listen to me! I may start a sticker chart like they have at school that seems to work for the teachers haha!

Thank you! I needed to hear that! Seriously! I feel like a break down sometimes. I know I am not the only mom who feels that but I feel like when I don't have them in control I am a bad mother or something! I have good kids just very hyper and loud!

Quoting MrsGuerrero92:

I have 14 year old identical boys. My only advice is; be patient momma!!!! It'll get easier. When I had my twins, I had a 2 year old. When my twins were 2 I had another baby. So as you can see, I was going crazy; just like you. It does get easier as they grow up. Hang in there.

I don't have twins, but I do have bickering girls 19mos apart.  When it gets too bad, my youngest (who is not in preschool yet) goes to grandma's for a few days.  They are so happy to see each other when the LO gets back that they start appreciating each other more.  You said that you were looking into activities.  Maybe separate activities would be a good idea?

The hard part about seperate time with twins especially them and this age is they get upset if one gets to go somewhere or do something without them and then I feel sad like they think it is punishment. I don't want them to feel like they did something wrong that is why they aren't going which is why if someone takes them they both go. When we take them places, they both go. I TRY to be fair. My one twin loves the water- like a fish in it- so I think that will be his thing and the other is in't crafts and fixing things so not sure about that he only tends to have his hyperness when his brother is with him! The karate would be good for both of them! I need to do something and figure out if it is needing space or needing to blow off steam.

What if they were separate activities that took place at the same time?  Perhaps something through your parks and rec dept.

Thanks, yours are cuties too,

Quoting jackieb2811:

I mean somedays it is they are more independent and want to be which is great (at first it was hard letting them expand their boudries I was afraid to let go of my little babies but I did it!) but now they feel like they are top dog. I have done and tried every type of punishment it feels like and SO and I have very few tricks left up our sleeve and then we have no idea what there is left to do!

My boys go back and forth with progress Well, they did now one is better at talking while one is good at problem solving and figuring out how things work. Your boys are cuties! My boys are soooo different sometimes I wonder if they are twins lol

Not sure my area has anything like that. I am going to start looking into things to do. I know is SOUNDS girlie but my area had gymnastics they coud do that and be in seperate classrooms. We only have one car right now and SO works swing shifts so that is also something I have to consider. I will feel bad if I cannot be at both of their activities at the same time...ugh!

Well I am not single I am with my SO of 2 years and we are expecting and we have lived together for well over a year but from the time my twins were babies I considered myself single because I did all and I am ALL the work except working which I did work up until about 27 weeks with them.

I like hearing other twin moms stories it makes me feel better and less alone in the craziness!
