September 2009 ~ Issue #012
Raising toddler twins is a fun time. This is when they are beginning to explore and discover everything in their little world. If you are raising toddler twins, you can expect to have two times the fun...And sometimes, double the trouble! This is the age of fascination and keen interest in everything that is going on around them.
Yes, twin toddlers take a lot of time and energy. This is why you must plan your time wisely. Their nap time is one of these times. Normally an hour nap is sufficient for most toddlers, but you will have to cater the time to the needs of your own twins. Regardless, if you can keep your twins on the same sleep schedule it provides the perfect opportunity to get other things done that are waiting on your attention that can't otherwise be done when they're awake.
Another time is meal time. If you need to do something that can be done from the kitchen, put them in their high chairs, give them their food and get busy. You are close by to keep an eye on them but they cannot jump down and take off into another part of the house. This is the time toddlers start to show a little independence and allowing them to feed themselves is going to be very beneficial. You can even set up other activities that they can do in their high chairs. Finger painting, playing with blocks, etc. An efficient way to keep twin toddlers busy for small increments of time.
