Twins playing

Playing nicely?
Or plotting which toys to steal from each other?

According to my 10 month old twins…

1. Duplo is not for building…
Duplo bricks are for putting in the mouth, filling with drool, then hitting your twin with.

2. Rattles only work if there are two (and I don’t mean one each)…
You don’t shake them, you bash them together to make as much noise as possible – whilst your twin cries, because you took hers!

3. Noisy toys are NOT suitable for sharing…
They are for tug of war, fighting over, and in some cases, a weapon!

4. Highchair toys…
The idea is to cover it in as much food as possible, then use it to smear said food, everywhere! The one Mummy cleans up first, is the winner!

5. All toys…
Must be tasted and checked for bite-ability. Think of it like a dog marking their territory… whoever leaves the biggest teeth marks – claims it!

6. All is fair and equal…
In twins and toys. That includes, kicking, biting, hair pulling, slobbering on, eye poking and pinching. The first one to get pulled away by mummy or daddy, is the loser!

7. Some of our favourite toys are…
Dirty nappies – fresh off the bum, baby wipes, a spoon full of food, our big sister, tv remotes & mobile phones.

8. Mummy is trying to teach us the meaning of a word…
It must mean she is proud of us, because every time we do any of the above… she looks at us and says “NO!” 

Daddy volunteered to take part in our Hair-Pulling demonstration...

    Great post! And oh so true. Remember it well. It DOES get easier though. My twins are 6 now and although a toy occasionally still becomes a weapon, they generally get on brilliantly. They’ve even learnt to share!! 🙂 xx

    Brilliant post, I can just see the twins doing it too! POD is a singleton but did all those things at the same age. Now she’s two she’s adopted her Daddy’s lack of patience and learnt wood doesn’t attach to Duplo 🙂
