I can barely manage one, how do you raise twins?

19th Jun 2015   By Bali Sanghvi  [36 views]


I have been asked many times, ‘How do you do it?’. All I do is smile and say. ‘Its actually very simple. I love it’. To which I just get confused stares.

Raising twins is not easy, especially if you are a first time mother. But I firmly believe that God only gives you things you are capable of handling. No amount of research can prepare you for motherhood. Every step is a learning experience. Every second is a moment of discovery. Every victory is a reason to celebrate and every tough time, a means to make you strong, firm and determined.

I am a mother of twins and I wont say that it was easy, but yes, its been worth it….every minute has been worth it.

When I first saw my boys, I knew that my life had changed. My priorities, my likes, everything. I found myself humming nursery rhymes in the bathroom while taking a shower instead of the popular Bollywood numbers. Bedtime at 8.30 made me so happy. Trips to the zoo and amusement park became more frequent and fun, than going to shopping malls. The biggest challenge was who would build the tallest tower with Lego and not what I should wear for that dinner date with friends. I did not bother about the fact that I did not have that perfect body to wear a swim suit. What was more important was getting into the pool with my children squealing in delight and splashing water. It was not important that I did not get to wear white as often as I wanted to. What was more important was jumping in muddy puddles and getting all dirty. The faint gray strands of hair did not bother me. It was just a sign that I was progressing in life feeling happy. Suddenly, the silence was not welcome anymore. I missed the happy chaos of my children when they were away in school. Holidays did not mean ‘relaxing. It meant more and more adventure. It was actually fun sneaking away into the bathroom to read a few pages of my book. There was a sense of completeness in cuddling together with my husband and children. It was a feeling of immense security.

Raising children in this century is not easy. There are far too many challenges and pressure. But I have learnt of a simple solution. The less we complain, the more life will be better. A child does not understand things like brands, fear, right or wrong. A child only understands love. Anything you do with love, be it the most simplest of the task, the child will appreciate it.

Raising children can be made simple, if we spend more time with them than allow our maids to do so. Remember, we have given birth to them….a few years….that’s all they need from us….After that, they will fly way….and then, you will wonder, ‘Why didn’t I?’.

So give them the gift of NOW! Whatever you do with them, make it memorable. All they need….is your time….and a little bit of chocolate here and there, will do no harm :)
