On a much lighter note, I posted this video probably over a year ago on Facebook and Joel and I were talking about it again last night. I think it's hilarious.

Being a M.O.M.
Being a mothers of multiples is different than being a mom to singletons. I don't think anyone would dispute that. I always love talking to other moms with twins and relating to their stories. Don't we all feel a bit better knowing someone else has been through a version of what we're going through, both amazing and challenging? I came across this blog post yesterday and wanted to give the author a hug. I have so been there. Holding a sleeping baby over the holidays I realized I hardly have any memories of doing that with my boys. I don't really remember much of that early newborn phase at all. On the rare occasion that I do get to hold one of them while they sleep, it melts me. I missed that. I traded it in for a routine that kept me somewhat sane and babies who could sleep on their own. I wouldn't change it. I did what I had to do to survive having two babies, but I know I missed out and sometimes that makes me sad. The amazing things about having twins far outweighs the hard stuff, but it's good to acknowledge and feel normal.
