Below is a short blog I (Ben/Dad) wrote about the past few weeks. We hope you enjoy that and our last episode!
A dad’s story about his newborn twins
Going into this whole “dad” thing I knew there would be some challenging times. I knew my wife and I wouldn’t get enough sleep, that was a given. I also knew babies cried, you changed them, you fed them and then put them back to bed, right? WRONG
When our babies are up it seems like all they do is cry. And it’s not that cute baby cry either but a full body, ear piercing scream. From changing diapers, feeding them, belly time and being in the swing…If they’re awake it seems like all they do is cry!
Sometimes all they want is to be held (which can be a challenge at 4am, when you’ve been up since 8am the day before). Other times they want more food. And what seems like a daily occurrence (usually in the night) there is nothing you can do, they’re just going to scream.
I don’t hate my girls, but…
I know I’m exhausted and probably extra sensitive but is it wrong for me to hope the next few weeks/months just fly by?
