Going on holiday with twin toddlers

This month we’ll be going on our second family holiday abroad. The first time we went was two years ago. My mother-in-law paid for us to go, which was very kind of her and she’s paying again this year. We’re going to Menorca, which is where we went two years ago although we’ll be staying at a different hotel this time around. Our twins were 18 months old the first time we took them abroad.

I’ve heard that boys can take longer than girls to potty train so if you’re reading this and worrying about when the right time to start is – stop worrying! Do you know any… [Read More]

Finding Mummy Friends

Before our twins were born I didn’t have many friends outside of work. I have my twin sister which is great but friends from school have all moved away or had families of their own and were too busy or too far away to socialise. Now that our twins are here and they’re almost 16 months old, I would love to have some mummy friends that I can meet in the park or just go places with or simply pop round for a cuppa whilst the babies play. I wonder though how do you go about making mummy friends when… [Read More]
