It has been almost 5 years to the date when I found out I was expecting twins. At the time, I didn’t know any other mothers of twins that I could turn to for advice about how to raise twins. I knew nothing.
Ever have one of those days when you feel like you’re the worst mother in the world?!
It has been awhile since I last wrote. And to be honest with you, part of the reason was because I didn’t have the “perfect” topic to write about. I was waiting for something to inspire me. And yesterday, something did. It was a classic act of ‘mind-over-matter,’…of courage…and of determination. And here it is...
It certainly was a ‘techy-kind-of-Christmas’ for many. But with all of these new gadgets to entertain our kids, are our kids forgetting how to entertain themselves?!?
I started out Mother’s Day 2012 celebrating my ‘day of freedom from obligations’ at home…but I returned that night with a whole new feeling of appreciation.
I knew my life would change the moment I found out I was having twins. However I don’t think anybody could have prepared me for the “double amount of love” that I soon would be privileged enough to witness between two individuals.
There have been a few instances recently where I have told someone that I am the hostess of a new “Moms Everyday” show. If there is a man within earshot, I often hear the response, “Well, what about Dad?!”
That’s right. I’m sticking up for my favorite holiday—Thanksgiving….which seems to have been getting overshadowed more and more each year by Christmas. Enough is enough. I’m taking a stand.
Halfway to 18. That’s all I can think about as my daughter gets ready to celebrate her 9th birthday tomorrow.
I’m a sucker for a really good, inspirational quote. I have a bunch of favorites on the walls throughout my house. But I saw a quote on the wall at a friend’s house this summer that really resonated with me for some reason. It was a quote by none other than Dr. Seuss himself.
A person never really understands what it’s like to be a parent until he or she becomes one.
Every spring, my mailbox and inbox are overflowing with information on the different camps and activities available to my kids during the summer.
So, how do you feel about twins?!” It was a phrase I’ll never forget, and one that changed my life (and my family’s life) forever.
To many people, the thought of bringing four children under the age of 9 on a cross-country vacation might seem a bit insane.
What do you want to hear from a mom you’ve never met? What would capture your attention? What would make you want to read more? And more importantly, why would you want to listen to ME??! I’m just a mom. “Just” a mom? Is there such a thing? Hmmmm…
