This weekend's feature article from Twiniversity is "4 Truths About Parenting Twins."
Here's a snippet (the full article can be read at www.Twiniversity.com free of charge): "There are so many things in life that you can’t understand until you experience them. For me, parenting twins takes the cake! I thought I was prepared to be a mom. I couldn’t WAIT to be a mom. All of my life decisions–education, husband who was family-oriented, my teaching career– all centered around someday becoming a mom. It was hard for other people, but for me? I’d be a pro! I was the oldest of three, babysat for years, volunteered in my church’s nursery for a decade, was an elementary school teacher… I KNEW KIDS! Then my daughter came. A colicky newborn with a poor latch, low birth weight and just plain inconsolable for 3 months. She chilled out, was an amazing toddler and then my son came 22 months later. Not a bad baby but a much more challenging toddler. I could spend hours describing their personalities and how parenthood changed our lives! By the time we found out we were pregnant with our third child two years later, we were experienced enough to know that we didn’t know much, but hey, we already had two so we were becoming experts, right? WRONG. That ultrasound at 9 weeks revealing fraternal twins, rocked our world! TWINS?! We weren’t even sure we wanted more children, let alone twins! But those blessings have changed our life in so many good ways, they are so worth it! Doesn’t mean it’s easy though!"
