Being a parent is at times overwhelming—like when dinner’s on the stove, and you drop a plate and have to try to keep both the barefoot toddler and the dog from stepping in and eating shards of glass. Not that I’d know of that particular scenario from experience or anything. But because that is just one of the scenarios a mom deals with in a given day, I’m of the opinion that all moms are heroes.
But there is a certain breed of mom who is a superhero: the mom of multiples. I’ve seen the twin mom firsthand. My neighbor Margie has twins who were born just six weeks after my daughter. I truly don’t know how she manages the juggling act, but color me impressed. She somehow manages to keep it all together yet is thankfully not one of those moms who pretends it’s easy. She’s saved my sanity on many occasions because no matter what craziness I’m dealing with, it’s almost a guarantee that she’s dealing with it, too. Times two!
This week, we’ll be honoring moms of multiples with special content. We’ll be sharing tips and experiences from twin moms and will have other fun and funny twin posts. For you mamas, Mother’s Day should come twice a year!
Any twin (or more!) mamas out there? Speak up if you have any free hands to type! —Erin
