Your toddler twins will put on a show that can only be described as “twinadoes.”
Imagine the Tazmanian Devil from the Looney Tunes cartoons. He spins like crazy, leaving a wake of destruction in his path. Then, he takes a quick break, looks around and starts spinning again.
Now imagine your twins’ smiling faces in that whirlwind of destruction and enjoying every minute of it. There is something magical about toddler twins that you won’t see with a singleton toddler.
Your twins will run, jump, climb, topple, wrestle, destroy, demolish, slam, bite, hit, kick, cry, scream, and bounce off the walls like nothing you’ve ever seen.
The twins will feed off the actions and energy of the other to create super twinadoes that you’ll be hard pressed to contain.
Your clean family room will be struck by the twinadoes and you’ll have to carefully tread through the aftermath.
Yes, the twinadoes will even splatter food, spill drinks, leave crumbs, and dirty up your clean kitchen.
So don’t get too hung up on keeping your house spotless and tidy. As long as you have twinadoes roaming your halls, you’ll have messes to clean up.
The trick is to use the time when the eye of the storm is present to teach the whirling dervishes how to clean up their own messes!
