Twins: 1Yr+11Mths

Tuesday 24th November 2020

For my sins tonight I must change the sheets, Elektra’s clothing, go to the loo myself and attempt to have an adult conversation at midnight with Paris based Kym all while holding Elektra on my hip.

Keanu is snoring in Erroll’s arms laying next to Kingsley in his big bed. It was an early night for them, bottles in mouths, lights out, door closed by 6:30 we’re listening to Enya and I too pass out.

It is me these days who lays between the twins holding their little hands willing them to sleep. Always Elektra goes down first ever fighting sleep. Keanu must play with my fingers and hump my arm.

Today the babies are 2 months off turning 2.
