Frustration is a word that all parents are very familiar with and being a paragon of patience and cuddly understanding on days like these can stretch that word to its fullest. It is also on days like these that I am just grateful that I can keep smiling and not end up rocking backwards and forwards while sobbing in the corner.
Throughout my pregnancy and ever since the children were born, I have had so many people ask me if it's been hard to have twins rather than "just" one. But as I have no frame of reference, I can't really say... what I can say is this: Nothing has given me more pleasure in life than my children and I haven't found it to be hard at all.
I'm all for letting your hair down once in a while, but to actively spend your well earned cash to go on a holiday where all you want to do is have sex with strangers and add a few notches to your bed post is absurd. Lest we forget the obvious flaw that you will probably know 90% of the other revellers from home!
