People like to laugh at us when we tell them we’re pregnant with twins. Once they share their general joy and excitement with us, they generally say things like:
- “Haha – say goodbye to your lives!”
- “Well – hope you did everything you want to do in life because now you have no lives but your kids….”
- “No more toys for Adam!! Only toys for kids now…”
Now – I know life is going to change – I’m not stupid. Obviously – having twins IS going to be crazy, and our lives will never be the same. However, I like to get out and do things sometimes…and I know that Sarah – being an introvert – will need to find time to be alone and rejuvenate herself. I know we’re going to have a great support community that will help us through this dramatic time of change in our lives…but I wonder, after watching the above video, how does one find that time to be alone (or just be together – minus the kids)? Thanks to my friend Josh for linking to the video on Facebook.
For those of you who are “experienced” parents – how did you find time to get away with your partners and/or get away and find time by yourselves? Did you make a habit of getting some planned time in (as best as you can plan when you have newborn babies…) or was it more of a spontaneous thing?
