Ladies I need some advice or help with this. Some of you already know, but I work from home (literally at my dining room table) I work 4 hours a day except on Saturday, which is 5 hours. During the week, my aunt comes over to help me with the twins especially as I work. Lately, I've been worried about them not having enough interaction with me, my aunt or my husband on Saturday's. They have become huge fans of the Disney Jr. channel - now yes, I've heard the reports of too much tv not being good for them. My response to that is if you had to work and had twins, tv would be your life saver too. I know I'm sounding contradicting too. I'm a little all over the place on this. Now, I know it will be very soon that they will be playing with each other more so tv will be less. Now its not like they are watching 8 hours of tv. It's just my aunt is also making dinner while watching them, so she's not interacting with them every second of the afternoon.
My husband is home today so he's watching the babies, but I just pissed him off. I asked him to play with Michael because he looks bored (Alex is sleeping now). I know he's not use to having to watch them during the day but I just thought I would suggest it.
Lately, I feel like I'm doing everything wrong. I'm not playing with them enough, I'm not feeding them right, I need to do this or that. Honestly, I think I'm making myself nuts. Is it me or what? And for all you ladies who watch twins on your own with no help, God Bless you! I do it on my own to about noon when my aunt gets here and I'm ready for a nap after that.
