We're going to play a drinking game. Every time I post the word "twins" we drink. (Don't worry, I'm drinking water and so are you.) I keep thinking the awe/novelty of this whole twins (heyaaaa!) business is going to wear thin but in fact the opposite. Every day I wake up like a shot. TWINS! (cheers!) TWINS! (l'chaim!) TWINS! (salud!) lights blinking on my marquis de soul. It's consuming me. They're consuming me. And my blog, clearly, which is how these things operate. I could care less who's wearing what. World news is impossible to stomach. Angry Birds? I STILL have no idea what that is. What I want to know is how expectant mothers of twins are decorating their nurseries (Adorable, btw.) I want to watch LIVE BIRTH VIDEOS of vaginally delivered twins on youtube. (I've seen them all.) I want to follow Mariah Carey around with a notepad (She's expecting twins any day.) and the list goes on...
We shot the following momversation less than a week after I found out I was pregnant with (drink!) twins and was still somewhat of a total wrecksketcase. I cried through half the video because Heather is so sweet and amazing and I want to marry her soul. She's also a twin (bottom's up!) and shared what that relationship has meant to her. I cried listening to Jen Levinson, who has two pairs of twin (ahem) boys, because she was so generous with advice and kindness (and emailed me a giant list of twin (knock it back) resources after we taped, which was so rad of her.) The outpouring of support has been mindblowing and I've created a folder called "Twinning" with all the documents and links and double stroller recs I've received over the last few weeks.
I'm not usually one for soliciting advice but hearing from other parents of multiples has been beyond helpful. I chuck the books because you guys are far more insightful. So tell me everything you know. And, yes I've seen the twin (Frank the tank, Frank the tank!) video. I'm responsible for at least 289 of its views. And yes of course I cried, because, well, twins. (Congratulations. You are now officially hydrated.)
