Speaking of mothers...I have been playing the role of a wanna-be-mother this past week. Or maybe I should say, wanna-be-mother-but-I-have-no-idea-what-I'm-doing. So, I need your help. Desperately.
But before you give your advice of how to be a faux mother and what to do with children, I will explain...
Last week I finished finals and headed straight to Washington DC. I was in a hurry because my amazing sister was about to give birth to twins! A few hours after I arrived in DC my sister went into labor. She left the house around 6:50 pm, drove about 40 minutes to the hospital (they live in the outskirts of DC), and then literally one hour after she left the house I received this picture from my brother-in-law. It had to of been a record for the fastest natural birth of twins ever.
Since my sister is at the NICU all day everyday and her husband is at work--that means I stay home and take care of the twins' older brothers. Three older brothers, to be exact.
I spend my days trying to entertain a 6-year-old, a 4-year-old, and a 20-month-old. Trying is the key word here.
But, I need some ideas. What do I do with three kids at home? Do any of you guys have any activity ideas? Games? Anything?
I need help pretending to be a mother the next couple weeks...
