My wifes cousin had twins around the same time our first was born. Sounded really rough, she had to pin one down with her knee while she changed the other ones nappy. They're mad yokes though, and both boys so probably a bit easier for you Dara.

Not sure I'd agree with Stateofyous get them all done in one thesis. I've a near three year gap between mine and its nice to get go through all the phases of them growing up again. I found the first few weeks of having 2 really tough but after 4 or 5 weeks when she started to sleep through the night it all settled down and was grand again.

Yeah mates of mine had twins when the 1st was just turning 2 and I met then the odd time and they were like broken people. Shit like trying to feed them, nappies, putting down at night, all that hassle doubled up, nah one at a time please.

Eh, but I'm sure you'll be fine Dara

Obvioulsy it'll be a while before you can but I'd recommend moving them into their own room as soon as you can. Ours was always a pretty good sleeper but as soon as we moved her out she started sleeping through the night.

exactly this! get them settled in their own room before they get used to being in your room or else you'll never get them out
around 6 months & they'll sleep better for it too

edit: or is it 6 weeks?? i can't remember it's been so long

Brilliant. Did the student body vote for her?

yup, it's a student wide vote, although i read something on twitter suggesting the timing of it meant that large numbers who might have voted against her, weren't present to vote.

think in my years there, only one genuinely decent person got the president gig. the rest were all people who just wanted power to feed their ego.

Generally really like what Gary Lineker has to say on twitter, but never realised the constant abuse he takes, as I'm assuming any famous person probably does on twitter. I never read replies.
Innocuous enough post, followed by a load of crap about refugees

If you look under virtually any tweet the first response tends to be "Shat on...."

Cos of that time he shit himself during a match. I'm sure that joke was funny once. I dunno how he stays on Twitter tbh
