For those of you who thought having twins would be fun....

Here is what the witching hour looks like at our house. This is the 1 hour right before bed time. This is how the girls are just about every night. They already go to bed at 6pm but they are still over-tired by 5pm.

Watch the video to see what I mean. We love our girls dearly and wouldn't change anything for the world, but we wanted to show you the work involved at what our house sounds like every night. Enjoy:

  2. It sounds like P2X2! That cry means 'put down the *&^*% camera and pick us up now!!!!'. :) Bed at 6pm, I just can't wrap my head around that! It's 8:20pm and I just put P2 down!

  3. how funny. i wanted to write wowzers before I saw the first comment. cougar gets the same way at 5 and goes to bed at 6, but then he gets up at 6am. i want to try stretching the evenings to a later bed time so i can sleep in a little.

  5. Ugh - that is never fun. We spent a lot of timing playing with naps and snacks and meals to find the right combination. Micah was on 3 naps a day until maybe 9 months, and when he switched to 2, he still needed at least 3 hours of sleep. He also needs his bottle and a snack by 4:30 or 5 or he starts to fall apart, and he needs dinner around 6 or 6:30 or all hell breaks loose! I hope your witching hour passes soon and you can find a magic combination to soothe them before bed. - Tess

  6. HAHA! Sorry but I couldn't help but laugh..life with twins. Of course I'm sure they were less than pleased with mommy getting the camera out instead of picking them up LOL!

  8. Ugh not fun..... ours aren't too bad usually (but 5x a week they're in the car around dinner time anyway) Tonight wasn't their best - tired babies are not happy babies at all.
