46 years of Parenting

Our second Twin Birthday of the year with our second set of twins turning 9! That’s 18 years of parenting plus the 28 years of parenting the older set up twins. 46 years of parenting – older than my age! L (14) says it doesn’t work like that and it’s only 14 years of parenting but I say differently. Four children who may have come in pairs but still have individual needs and different requirements other than the basics of love, food, water and shelter and often both Twin Dad and I could do with a stunt double each so I’m going with the *more like 46 years of parenting learning loved and survived over 14 years or so* calculation.

We had plans to go to on a camping trip to combine a trip to another Zoo that have Gorilla and Orangutan and a visit to Warwick Castle but given it was two hours away and the weather was pants, the girls decided they wanted to go but on a different day as they just wanted to play with toys on their birthday. So instead they opted for a Toys R Us Trip to spend birthday money followed by a Pizza Express lunch then home to have Birthday Cake with Grandad.  Why is it that they always want garden races after everyone is stuffed full of chocolate cake!? They had a really nice day, we all did.


Following day not so nice because not everyone was in the mood to go out again but the weather was too nice not to get some fresh air. A trip to Wicken Fen a place we visited back in 2011. Everyone has grown considerably since then!
