The twins are accustomed to walks at least twice a day. Once, right after their morning bath and before their morning nap around 8.15am. And another time at about 5.30pm after their bath and before their milk and bedtime.
They love their walks, often spent babbling to each other while admiring the sights of the old estate. They're so accustomed to these walks, which have become part of their wind-down routine, that they'd often get very edgy, when for some reason or the other, they don't go for a walk. Usually, a spin in the car would do the trick.
Not only do they enjoy their walk. We often find that it let's us, care-givers unwind. And since, it always takes more than one person to care for the twins. The walk would allow at least 1 care-giver, often my mum, a chance to shower, watch some tv and catch a breather. So it's a win-win all round!
The twins have been lucky. I walked them daily when I was on maternity leave. And hubby's been walking them twice a day while he's been home over the last two months. And on some special days, we even take them on walks further afield.
Last Saturday, we enjoyed a cool breezy walk at Upper Pierce Reservoir.
If there's one thing we will always have as a family, it will definitely be our walks!
