MOST RECENT

MORNING!!! As predicted... Zero respect for the clock change... Strictly business as usual for the twins 😁 ... Anybodies babies put in a special lay in? 🤔 #twins #babies #clockchange #mornings #twinbond #twinning #parenting #dadlife #cute #themultidad

* SOUND UP for cute baby laughter ** ....55 seconds of pure twin bonding right here ... Admittedly Nelly is looking unlikely to ever catch Ted in a chase but I love the smiles, laughs and happiness of seeing them play together. This video is like chocolate, the more you consume the better it gets ... So stuff yourself full 😄 #twins #twinbond #twinningiswinning #babies #babyvideo #cute #chaseme #gardenfun #proudparents #play #loveeachother #thelifeoftwins #themultidad 🤓

Home in time for bedtime... Great I thought, quick hello and a kiss goodnight and that's them for 12 hours ....yeah right ... The reality of what's happening here is a bedroom lit up like a football stadium as we await for the rest of the search party to find Ted's dummy which has become a 'fun' game .... For him ... The first attempt was like a shot putter returning from shoulder surgery, lacking distance followed by a yelp!! .... I tracked that successfully, the second attempt, a sly manuoveure when I wasn't looking which appears to be a more strategic version of hide n seek the dummy ...calculated even... Anyway, a 12 minute search with the floodlights on and phone torch's for the detailed work, it has been concluded a closed search with the dummy somehow buried in a very hard to find spot! How?! No idea. Teddy 1-0 Daddy. #twins #doubletrouble #teddy #mischief #bedtime #dadlife #dadding #twinlife #hidenseek #fun #dummy #parenting #mybabies #twinnies #themultidad 🤓

The twins are super chatty at the moment, albeit the vocabulary is limited .. Ted who is sharing a rare smile for a photo says 'mummy' more times than a train announcer says please mind the gap in a day, whilst Nelly frequently says 'bubble' which is her way of saying please blow bubbles before I scream the house down with my butter wouldn't melt smile ...it's a fun, cheeky but still challenging stage and I think they are missing the head of twintainment, 'themultibruv' whilst he is at school ...who by the way is loving it and doing so well... V proud!! 👍 #chatty #twins #weaning #dinner #twinning #babies #mummy #smiles #cute #brotherandsister #proudparents #themultidad 🤓

Førstemann til å drikke opp!! Tvillingene Nelly og Ted eeelsker melk, og insisterer på å drikke en flaske varm melk etter frokost - helt uten hjelp! De myke deilige flaskene er fra #comotomo📷 @themultidad

Just recently we have felt that bath and bedtime has become a bit uneventful and needs spicing up by adding something else to do in the most stressful hour of the parenting day in the form a bedtime story ..... No, not really, it's still more eventful than an episode of Big brother with the same tears, tantrums and dummy spitting but having read stories to Finn from so early on, and him clearly benefitting with his brilliant chat and bants we do need to start doing more of this with the twinnies. They are beginning to say the odd words and really trying to talk... Trouble is, Ted just likes eating the words and seems to love paper as much as milk which tends to make for an incomplete story for Nelly who is properly engaged ... But more stories it is from now on, but I think they are going behind bars for it 🤓 #bedtime #twins #pjyamas #dadlife #lifestyle #books

The first proper week of school for Finn has gone so well but has hit us like a right hook from Anthony Joshua... After a summer of having a looser routine the hard deadline of being out the door and at school by 8.50am with the twins & Finn feed, dressed, cleared up and me on the way to work which leaves @themultimama solo makes for stressful mornings, especially when the twinnies are flinging cereal like it's tennis balls... One little challenge we are also facing is that Nelly & Teddy, previously great settlers for their naps in the cots now will only go off for naps in the day whilst in the buggy and then we transfer them to cots... As you can imagine it's a real drain of time and frustrating they have lost their ability to self settle ..anyone else experienced this? What did you do to overcome? #twins #parentingadvice #buggynaps #sleep

The things that go on whilst I am at work.... A cushion for the feet?? Make yourselves comfortable you two!!! I would never get away with this 🤓....All three have one of these chairs from @suerydercharity and love them ... after a big day of school for the Multibruv and a session of @hartbeeps_leighonsea for the twinnies, some 'quiet time' (parenting speak for justification of kids watching TV) and a couple of back to back Peppa pigs restores calm to the household pre the 3 course Al carte dinner which I am sure is being served with a choice of vegetable side orders and an expansive dessert trolley 🤦#servicedchildren #twins #finn #quiettime

Nope it's not yoghurt, it's in fact another one of Nelly & Teddy's preferred non toy toys ... The butter we use on their bums from @lovebooshop (which is great by the way) ...The obsession with the closing and opening of the lid is off the scale and becoming a MUST have distraction object to prevent the neighbours from calling 999 due to screaming babies when we change their nappy ... The situation is almost as drastic as the Brexit situation for us and we now have at least half a dozen empty tubs which act as 'stunt doubles' for the nappy change... Except.... This time the stunt double got mixed up for the real thing!!! 😄 #babygirl #nelly #nontoytoys

If you're threenager, fournager, fivenager or any other nager is anything like Finn, when the TV is on he is 200% in the action with only a finger to the ear or cheeky switch of channel enough to distract him from watching @pixarcars 3 for the 19th time!!! Thank you for all the kind messages we have received wishing Finn luck at school, amazing support and v kind - so far so good... He has only done small settle sessions which are a few hours at a time. Tomorrow he does a half day so that's the next big hurdle for him but we are so proud, impressed and relieved at the way he has handled the jump so far... He has a thirst to learn and I think him doing 5 full days at school is undoubtedly going to help @themultimama during the days with the twins and give my hard working parents who are often behind the scenes a few hours off (maybe 😄) ... I think they should set up Insta profiles myself documenting the life of a multinanny & grandad ... 🤓🤓 #fatherandson #finn #myson #daddy #thankyou

An afternoon at the beach with 14 month old twins and 4 year old consists of:

1- Repeatedy having your sunglasses ripped off your face - why? Terrible game.
2- Bringing enough sand home in the buggy to set up a private beach for hire in the garden
3 - All three children appearing to think sand is a 'snack' and after consecutive face plants, realising you can never have enough wet wipes on board!
4 - Realising that the price of ice cream is rising faster than interest rates
5 - And then being presented with the cold reality that in fact what they really want is the JUST the flake and the ice cream is merely just face paint ... Anyway, had a lovely afternoon 🤓

What is your babies favourite non toy toy? Cereal box? Washing machine? Squash bottle? .... The twinnies are all over non toy toys like a mouse around a cheese board! At least this makes Christmas gifting nice and easy.... just keep it domestic!!! 20 items each from the £ shop sound good? With them both standing now, walking feels imminent so perhaps we will swiftly move into the danger zone of domestic toiletries and aerosols next... #twins #nontoytoys #babies

Yep... today is that day... Finn goes to big school....it just doesn't seem possible ...but he has more lines than Alexa and I'm confident he will do and mix well.... he told me last night he was a 'little nervous' which had me worrying for him last night but he had a good sleep and is full of beans so far this morning, even demanding extra toast which is very rare. Leaving for work today was the hardest it's been since returning from paternity with both sets of births, firstly of course because I was worried for the Multibruv and secondly both Nelly and Teddy decided on one of the more pressured mornings of the year to both have a dual poo explosion as I was about to leave the house ... You couldn't script it 🤓 good luck Finn bear, @themultimama and I are so proud of you!! 👍 #firstdayatschool #finn #bigbrother #myson

Question: Have you noticed that your kids sleep better after being on the swings? Never thought about it? ... no me neither.... but I am hoping I am on to something here as my kids love the swings and @themultimama and I love sleep....So when I read that children that go on the swings regularly sleep well or better because the motion helps balance activity in the brain (yep it's a thing apparently)....I thought, they need swinging in their routine as much as milk 🤓... luckily, my parents have just moved house and kindly installed swings for them so I am expecting a full nights sleep from now on .... I'll let you know how it goes ... Try it and let me know what you think!? We could be on the verge on something huge here...but if we solve the thing us parents love whinging most about... What will we talk about?! 😜🤓 #mykids #sleep #swings #3kids

With twins, a 4-year-old and a dad who always misses his mouth when eating, it's fair to say the washing can get on top of us sometimes.....🤓 And whilst our newest addition to Tremain Towers launderette @neutral.skin doesn't load and switch on the machine on for you, it's one less thing we have had to worry about in terms of our little ones and their sensitive skin. The twinnies suffered hugely with Eczema in their first few months with various trips back and forth to the doctor - we could never quite be sure what it was but eliminating products with perfumes and colourants were just some of the watch outs on the list. Neutral 0% is exactly this ..0% perfume and 0% colourants; hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested; receiving the Allergy UK Seal of Approval ... We have been using this around a month now and our customers at Tremain Towers Laundrette seem happy, so I'm happy!! If you do want to try for yourself, it's available at Sainsbury's; Ocado and Amazon....but for now, I have washing to hang out :-) #ad

If your summer has been anything like ours your buggy, change bag or car is probably resembling some form of mobile tuck shop?!? With a full programme of twintainment, and activities for the multibruv too, the tuck shop has been in full swing with Ella's finger foods - Ted loves the unboxing and Nelly loves the eating! She beat him to the last Oaty Finger in the box, later for us to find some remaining product successfully woven into the fabric of the buggy at a later part of the day. With 13 month old twins and a 4 year old, days out, weaning, feeding and meals on the go can be a challenge, no denying it, BUT trust me when I say I would rather leave the house with no trousers on than forget to take a wide range of healthy snacks that are ready to go..... no snacks = meltdowns. Snacks being as available as tap water = stress free fun days out for us. Boom! I know we have a few more weeks of the summer holidays left, not that anyone is counting but @EllaskitchenUK along with nutritionist Claire Basely and Parenting Coach, Sue Atkins have put together 5 handy tips for weaning on the go which I think are great as a little checklist - you can check these out with the link in my bio or look up this link: https://www.ellaskitchen.co.uk/weaning/on-the-go/ #ad

After a day indoors yesterday, today we needed a family day out more than a parent needs a glass of wine come 7pm ...or maybe earlier 😆?! ...and wow, what a difference it makes when everything follows the parenting textbook! After what appeared like packing for a holiday to Australia we managed to get out at a good time and the twinnies napped brilliantly in the car whilst the multibruv played DJ and we then spent a brilliant day @marsh_farm doing everything from the twinnies first love aside from eating.... Transport!! ... to crazy golf, seeing the animals, playing on swings, treasure hunts, sandcastles.... You get the idea! I never give parenting advice because firstly it can be annoying and secondly I am still learning lots myself about 'the game of parenting' but one thing I do know is 'if in doubt, get out' ...oh...and ...just out of interest, what time did you have your first beer or wine today? 😄 😁 #twins -

My lunch date today = perfect!! Nelly was originally booked in the traditional brunch slot of 11.30am with Ted but put in a monster 2hr 20 mins nap! (I'm not bitter...much) the only reservation left was for lunch with me which she originally put two fingers up @themultimama when it was suggestdd...as per the pic 😄 but after some persuasive discussion she was such a low maintenance date, eat quietly, no small talk and went for the buffet option with tap water opposed to mineral so represented brilliant value!! 😁 I had forgotten the difference between lunching with 1 baby instead of 2 or 3 at the same time... Sooo much easier (note, not I didn't say easy 😜) unfortunately the monster nap meant no afternoon nap and a slightly above average level of 'emosh' to the final session of the day 🙄 #babygirl

This morning before I left for work I said to Finn aka 'themultibruv' ...help mummy with the twins whilst I am at work so she can get you all ready for the day ... He of course said yes before re-engaging into Paw Patrol because chase was on the bloody case ....but I didn't quite think it had gone in...I later find out that he barricaded the twins into a room and 'played' toys with them so they couldn't escape and mummy could do 'jobs' 😆 ...naturally that wasn't well received by Teddy Nutkins and Nelly wide eyes but as we can see, he takes his responsibility as a multibruv very seriously.... What do you think the beach chat consisted of? 😆 #mykids -
