Split Personality

It occurred to me yesterday that having twins requires a split personality. One needs to be rigidly organised in order to go anywhere or do anything and cope with the shere logistics of 18 bottles, 3 loads of washing, 4 changes of linen, 10 changes of clothes and 20 nappies per day. My partner used to say there was more planning involved in attending lunch at my mother's than there was in the invasion of Bagdhad. Okay, bad example, but you get my drift. However, one also needs to be spontaneous enough to be able to abandon said plans on 20 seconds' notice because everything's going to shit.
Come to think of it, George W. Bush has twins. Perhaps if he'd left Baghdad to Laura we might have had a very different result...
