Ever wish there was something that would make your day with your multiples easier?! I find myself dreaming up these silly inventions (and usually laughing at them). My latest…
Our two-story house that we so blindly bought 3 1/2 years before children, has been driving me NuTs. Stairs + babies/ toddlers= don’t mix. The girls are good at crawling up the stairs, but both often decide to stop in mid crawl to check on me or their sister and almost fall. (don’t get me started on going down the stairs- yikes!) Did I mention at the bottom of the stair case is TILE? Reese’s latest “Miss Independence-ism” is wanting towalk up the stairs, which requires a little help from me. So just the other day when focusing on her walking, Riley flew by me- down, down, down. I shove my leg behind Reese so she doesn’t fall all while catching Riley from plummeting to the tile. I’m forced to be a contortionist, I tell you! I keep thinking someone should invent a little chair with straps that will electrically bring children safely up. Ski-lift like. Then it dawned on me. George Costanza did just that (but not for babies)! In an episode of Seinfeld when he was lying as usual- pretending he was unable to walk- in order to get this job, he rode up the stairs in a little seat. It is one of the best episodes! Everyone is walking by so quickly as his slowwwww chair creeps up and he waves at everyone passing… when he could very well be walking with them. The song “My Baby Takes the Morning Train” is playing all the while. What a crack up! I now can’t go up the stairs (aka perform my juggling act) without singing that song. For your viewing pleasure in case you haven’t seen this genius of George Costanza:

What would you create/invent to make your life with multiples a bit easier?? A girl can DrEaM!
Amy is mama to 18 month olds Reese and Riley. The latest ‘comment’ she gets out in public, due to the girls’ size difference, is, “Your babies are really close together!” Then when Riley talks to them in little sentences, they’re REALLY blown away. Like she has a genius 9 month old. ha ha! Read about their adventures at http://lovestarbucksalatte.blogspot.com
