Thanks for reading! No clue why I've only had single kids... I put the lot trait for twins so I've been expecting multiple children each time and it's only been one. Another good reason to have supernatural parents...lol. One kid at a time makes it take longer! But it has been nice...I haven't felt overwhelmed...yet...lol :yoyo:

My #1 pro-tip: get rid of the high chair. It's NOT worth it when the kids can get their own food off the counter.

Great chapter! Loved seeing your first set of twins! :wink:

Twins again! Cheers to that! lol :toast:

Yay for finally having a kid with red hair! And also another girl!

You're way better at skilling your toddlers. Mine always miss maxing at least one of them... It's annoying.

Spoiler:
My secret is...independent toddlers glued to tablets with breaks for sleeping and eating plus potty anytime they get up and move. If you don't have tablets then it's a little more time consuming because you have to keep their queue full so they never stop moving from one skill to another. You add an adult helping them with skills and it goes pretty fast that way also. I was almost positive I wasn't going to get Thinking maxed but phew...lol. If you have two toddlers then keep them in the same room and they'll build communication with each other while skilling other things on the tablets. Two skills at once, lol.

yea...I was wondering about that because it's been down to the last day on all my tablet toddlers...but with babies in the house and no teenagers I can't get any solid skill help from adults either right now... I'll probably switch it up now that Bella is a teen...maybe she can help. Oh wait...full house...no babies to worry about! LOL!
