I am a mom to a set of the most beautiful 2 year old twin girls. But I am so overwhelmed by them on the other hand. They are so clingy to me and so aggressive to one another. They are constantly biting, hitting and scratching one another that it is very unordinary to not be holding at least one of them. And when I am holding both of them, they are swatting and screaming at one another. I am also the mommy to a four year old boy and 3 step children, ages 11, 9 and 7. I feel like I have no time to myself or time to enjoy the other children because I am constantly dealing with the twins. Everyone just basically passes them over to me when the times get tough because they are wanting me anyways. Don`t get me wrong, I love these girls to pieces but I am just so worn out. They came into this world nearly 2 months early and I think maybe I still baby them too much because they are still so small but when is it ok to say No, Mommy doesn`t want to pick you up and hold you all day, when should they start showing some more independence outside of me.
