my creepy crawlies

My little people are quite active in the nighttime… There’s always a last drama, playing rough and someone gets hurt, a last trick to play on someone or someone screaming with laughter, the blurry pictures means I was probably laughing too 🙂 The twins have been restless sleepers from  the get go, I remember people…

From babies to astronauts…

You blink and they’re 8, you blink again and they’re 20… there’s a couple of these messages in memes and inspirational Instagram posts urging us to cherish every moment because it all goes so fast. I have 8 year old twins, and an 11 year old going on 21 😉 I swear I don’t know…

This is how we do it…

Moms of multiples, twins, or even moms of siblings born really close to each other (you know oopsie right after having a baby) we all share a similar experience. Back then people would ask all the time “How did you do it?” Often when enough years have passed people ask less but still ask “how…

Finding out you’re having twins can be compared to being in a car accident, and I have had many those, but those are tales…

Then there was 2.

Now falling pregnant for the second time should not be as scary and daunting and confusing as the first time around. You know what to expect. You’ve read what to expect when you’re expecting and a host of blogs and books as recommended by friends and family. You’ve walked this path before, in fact you…

In the beginning there was One.

  Falling pregnant for the first time is a magical scary unbelievable experience. My husband and I were ecstatic, if not a little afraid, of how life would change. It doesn’t quite sink in until there’s a full blown human being in your belly and you’re not sure how you are going to keep it…
