Twins are Terrific - A Look at Newborn to Two Years Old

I’ve written A TON about my twins. Their milestones and their discoveries. Our triumphs and our sorrows.  Our worries and our celebrations.  I’ve found our experience is very similar to other twin families and therefore we all relate.  It’s pretty awesome. At the end of this post, you’ll find links to major milestones in their... Read more »

Thrift Store Earrings of Hope

Years ago I was SURE that I didn’t want kids.  NEVER.  NEVER EVER EVER.*   I didn’t have a motherly instinct. I certainly didn’t want to bring another life into the world that I could screw up. I was also in a series of relationships that made me question everything about myself and wonder why... Read more »

Today is my Favorite

There will come a day when you aren’t going to think that going to the library with your mom is pretty much the best thing in the world. But that day is not today. Today we stop at the Dunkin’ Donut drive thru and as I order a large black coffee and munchkins for your... Read more »

Having Twins Made My Eyes Go in Two Directions. Literally.

I started joking before they were even born that this would happen.  All twin moms do.  Because you DO need to be looking in two directions at the same time.  While I thought this was simply a metaphor for twin care, it ACTUALLY happened to me.  Having twins made my eyes go in two directions....

I’ll tell you a little secret.  Remember when you were born?  That birth story was something.  But here’s the thing, I’m glad you aren’t little babies anymore. While I... Read more »

Nature vs Nurture in Twins

“Me, Gah, me!” My girl calls her brother “Gah”.  Not sure why as it has nothing to do with his actual name, but that’s definitely what she calls him.  Our Nanny sent a video of her saying, “Me, Gah, me” as he’s sitting on the big rocker and she wants him to move over so... Read more »

Going into my second week of working from home full time (this is temporary – a summer thing) and let me tell you this.  Working from home with toddlers is just like heading into the fancy downtown office!  I am so grateful I even get to do this, and most weeks I’m home Thursday and... Read more »

Twins are Great!

You always have a leader to follow.
Sure being a mom to twins (hell being a mom to anybody) is challenging, but overall it is such fun. Twin love is something magical to watch develop.  We have this all access pass to witness the hilarity and softness of their bond as it unfolds. Note – several of these pictures are from our...

Yes, I Harness My Kids

First of all, yes, I harness my kids.  You can call it a leash and joke about them being animals, but I will not take your bait.  Their safety is way more important than your snide comments or looks.  But wouldn’t it be a bit nicer to try to understand the reasoning behind why someone...

    I'm a grateful drunk who doesn't drink (sobriety date 10/4/2001), a smoker who doesn't smoke and a mom of boy/girl twins from IVF born 1/7/13. I'm grateful for the good the bad and the ugly. It's great to be alive!
