This statement was often followed by me saying "Moms of twins just don't have time to run a blog!"
I came to this knowledge completely on my own.
Because I've been a blogger for several years and never seen a twin-mommy blog, they must not exist.
But recently a comment was left on my blog by Brittany, a mother of 5-month old twins.
I went to her blog A little of this, a little of that and immediately read through every post since her babies were born. She was like me!
She and her husband are mormons. They live in Utah. They have twins!
I started harassing her via email for information on cloth diapering twins and sleeping babies in the same crib.
Then I found Mandey from Mama and the Dudes. She was like me!
She was from the Midwest, living in the west. She has boys born a year (possibly exactly) before mine! She has twins!
Then I realized there might in fact be an entire secret community of twin-mommy bloggers that I did not know about because when you're pregnant with only one baby twin-blogs aren't that interesting.
But now I
And so, because I love them and need them and they've all "been there, done that" I asked them to help me.
Every single day someone tells me (with pity in their voice) that things are going to get worse. That I'm in over my head. That the most stressful, horrible, sleepless days of my life are ahead of me.
And that might be true.
But stop freaking telling me that. You are not helping me.
The people who tell me that are never the mother's of twins.
I usually respond with "We'll be okay, we'll figure things out."
And people say "You have no idea what you're in for."
Well, neither do you. Where are your twins?
But these women, these twin-mommy bloggers DO know. And several of them have kindly agreed to help me with a little project.
Every Friday starting tomorrow (and hopefully continuing until the babies are born), I will feature a guest post by one of these amazing women about how awesome it is to have twins. None of that doom and gloom nonsense.
Some of these women have twins who are kids, not babies. Some of these women have twins who are still pretty new. One of these women has two sets of twins! What!?
And so I'm pretty freaking excited to see what they all have to say.
And you have that to look forward to.
