This photo was taken last week on my phone. We’ve converted the end of our garden into a playground. It took us about two months of backbreaking work but I’m so pleased we did it as it is the perfect spot for the kids to play.
I love that my boys have each other to play with. They giggle and run around making up games (their favourite being “banana detectives” which involves them chasing one another around the trampoline shouting “banana detectives” on repeat – I have no idea where it came from but it keeps them entertained for ages!)
I was sitting under a tree enjoying a sit down with a coffee when I looked up to see them coming down their slide together like this. When they got to the bottom they’d run back around and do it over and over again.
I want to bottle up these moments, because I know as they get older there will be less and less of them. Grown up boys don’t cuddle and hold hands like this. It breaks my heart – I want to keep them like this forever. Whenever we have double tantrum moments, I try to remember these special times to remind myself how amazing it is to have twins.
