Twins on the Go!
This week has definitely been adventurous for this Mommy. Being home alone all day with two newborns can definitely be a challenge and being out of the house can sometimes be even harder. Since I do work from home, I am at my house a lot, but I did not want the fact that I have two babies, make me feel like I cannot get out of the house. So, this week, it was time to prove to myself that I can do anything!
Some may call me crazy and some may call me brave or adventurous, but leaving the house is very important to me. I am proud to say that we have been out every day this week!
Monday: Thriving Into Motherhood Class at Kaiser Irvine: This 90-minute class is an educational support program for moms and their babies, from birth to one year old. Each class is $10 to attend but since it is privately run, you do not have to be a Kaiser member to attend. Each class has a different topic of discussion and this week the topic was Infant Sign Language.
Tuesday: SoCal Moms Connect: New Moms Connect: This is an 8-week, 2-hour workshop for first-time mothers and their babies. The program provides education and support to help first-time mothers feel confident and secure in their new role. It is so great to meet new moms who are going through the same things that you are!
Wednesday: Mommy Movie Morning: Yes, I went to a movie with the babies! Every Wednesday at the UltraLuxe Cinema at the Anaheim Garden Walk, they have “Parent Movie Morning” at 10am. This is a unique opportunity for moms and dads to get out and actually see a movie… in a theater! It is open to parents and their babies and feedings, diaper changes, and a little crying is to be expected. This week’s movie was “I Don’t Know How She Does It,” which I thought was a very fitting title!
Thursday: Run Errands: Since I had been out every morning this week, I felt it was only natural to keep the cycle turning, so the girls and I headed out to run some errands this morning!
At times, this week has been very stressful, but I have proved to myself that just because I have two newborns, does not mean I have to be locked inside my house!
