The Diary of a First Time Mom of Twins: Zero to Sixty in Under Two Seconds

I’ve gathered that this morning had to be the worst day of my life. I woke up at 5am changed diapers gave them milk and put them back to sleep. Then I laid back down and got back up at 6:30am to iron clothes for MDF1, laid back down and 7:30 I was up getting the boys dressed. We were packed up and ready to walk out the door at 8:02am.
So like any morning I belt them into their stroller and we are out the door. This morning was rainy and I didn’t follow my normal routine of putting them in the car first. Instead I chose to load our bags in the car first and then I hear a large crash and screaming. My children’s stroller fell down the steps of our apartment and they fell face first.:( As soon as I heard the crash I dropped everything, threw my keys to get to my sons. I turned the stroller over and there were abrasions and scratches on their faces. And the youngest busted his lip and there was blood just coming out.
I wanted to die right then and there. I didn’t know what to do… I had no idea where the closets emergency room was. I didn’t know who to call and worst off all I was by myself and my children were in pain. I feel like the worst mother in the world. I know things happen but I could kick myself for this. I wish I could take their pain away. My babies look like they got hit by a bus. But thank God the are ok, no stitches no X-rays, just scratches.
I feel so horrible. And I keep replaying the whole thing in my mind. Like “if I had just put them in the car first like I usually do this never would have happened or if I made one slight decision they would not have had to experience this.” I’m am so glad they are ok, no stitches no X-rays, just scratches. Thank God! What a day…
