A few months ago, I would have been writing a post entitled “10 Reasons my Delightful Twins are Laughing”. The top 10?

1. They woke up.
2. I played peek a boo.
3. I gave her ‘poo mouse’ her adored teddy.
4. One twin said hello.
5. I looked at them.
6. I blew a raspberry on their tummies.
7. We read a book together.
8. We got the stacking cups out of the box.
9. I went to the toilet.
10. I offered them a biscuit.

Oh, those pudgy little cheeks, soggy and plump. Those tiny little hands, perfect in every way… they were such a delight. But then they turned 18 months and those cute fluffy giggles? Gone. Chubby little smiles? Gone. Screaming hysterically? You got it! Pushing and shoving? Hmm, that too.

What really gets me is the fickleness of it all. Last week, we were all laughing. Today we’re screaming — no hang on, laughing — no screaming, off and on all day long. Allllll day loooong.

Today, I present the top ten reasons my twins are screaming…

1. They woke up.
2. I played peek a boo.
3. I gave her ‘poo mouse’ her adored teddy.
4. One twin said hello.
5. I looked at them.
6. I blew a raspberry on their tummies.
7. We read a book together.
8. We got the stacking cups out of the box.
9. I went to the toilet.
10. I offered them a biscuit.

Good bye, Dr. Jekyll. Enter, Mr. Hyde. Oh, the joys of toddlers.
