Lucky U

I'm not having a good day.

I know how blessed I am. How lucky.

I know if my girls would've been born at 26-weeks - like they would've been if not for the miracle of modern science - things could be much, much worse. I know. I know. I KNOW.

I won't bore you with the details about the trials and tribulations of having two-year-old twins. I am tired and frustrated. This morning I sighed, I cried, I told myself it will get better. It has to. She cannot be this trying forever. Right. Right??

I googled and found stories of two-year-olds that are way worse than mine. I thought it would make me feel better. It didn't.

So I'm blogging instead. This is my Lucky U card:

The inside said "Lucky U, you get a card from me!" (Maybe it should've said, "Lucky U, you don't have two-year-old twins! HA!")

The sparrows are Bombshell Stamps. The Lucky, the U and the fancy square are Studio G stamps. Staz-On ink, Distress Inks, and Prismas for the (crappy) coloring - I'm trying to get better at it, but it might be a lost cause. The cardstock is from my stash.

Tomorrow will be better.

I hope.

  5. Hi Britten,

    I know how you feel. We have boy/girl twins. They are 2 1/2 yrs. On really bad days I tell myself "This two shall pass..."

    I hope the rest of the week is better for you.
    Take care,

  6. Hugz to you!! My twin girls are 20 now and all I can say is hang in there girl and buckle your seatbelt. I know you are grasping at your wits end but just look at those beautiful miracles in front of you and say "Thank you God for your amazing blessings and the strength to get through the 2s." Bless you and those beautiful girls.
