Oh my that is so funny. I have to agree with you. I've got 5 children, 4 of them are boys and it seems like it is just a mad house all the time! I enjoy hearing about the antics in your household. Know that you are not alone! Although I don't have twins....you are in my prayers.

Praying for all of you, Angela! If you ever invent executive functioning in a bottle, I'll be your first customer. :)

I will keep you in my prayers today. I'm so sorry it is so tough for you right now. I hope you know how much I admire your strength as a mother. I fail all the time and I only have two children.

Hi Angela,

I'm a loyal reader (although - gulp - not a regular commenter) and I just wanted to mention the Yahoo Group SensoryHomeschool to you - I am the moderator and there are lots of people with similar challenges. Two of my three boys are sensory seekers as well. It sounds like you are already familiar with heavy work - have you tried a couple of small backpacks with a pound or two of weight (cans or books are good) in them? This may help them calm down a bit. One of the moms in our group swears by the "Miracle Belt" for her sensory seeker as well as her ADHD son. I haven't tried them myself but am considering it. Also, an occupational therapist may be able to help you find activities that will be calming for the twins. All that swinging, jumping, and running can also be overstimulating which is no fun for anyone. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know about the Yahoo group and send you my
sympathies!

Bless your heart! Life with identical twin boys does get easier. I promise! Now that my dudes are 5 we are down to one minor disaster per week rather than several major ones per day. Of course, we are just three plus two without the added one more.
I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Wendy
