The Story Behind Baby A & Baby B and the Twin Feeding Set – Parenting Twins Article

Feeding time was a struggle for me when my twins turned 6 months old. My boys were born at just 31 weeks and I wanted to do everything in my power to help them grow, develop, and stay as healthy as possible. Feeding time was very stressful for me and my boys. I couldn’t figure out how to feed them both easily, quickly, and safely. It was impossible for me to use two bowls and two spoons because they got…

She’s ONE. (yes, I realize this post is almost TWO months late) – Parenting Twins Article

I’m long overdue on this post. It’s shameful really. I never even did a ONE year post for Liddy. Actually, that’s a lie. I started one like twice, but never finished and never posted it. But, the struggle is REAL to actually do anything other than keep three tiny humans alive. And I’m managing that, so we’ll call it a win. My little Liddy Rose. They don’t get much sweeter, much happier, and more of a delight than this little…

A few things that twin moms can and cannot do… – The Mom Life – Parenting Twins Article

The fact that this is my first post of 2017 and it is already the end of January, proves a point – moms sometimes get so busy raising their children and making sure that their children (and husbands of course) are off to a good start at the beginning of a new year, that their own ‘to do’ list gets put on hold. Yes, I have been busy planning my year too BUT until those plans become a reality, I…

It’s not me, it’s them. Right? – Parenting Twins Article

Being a parent is probably the most challenging job out there.  Next in line would be daycare worker. You see where I’m going with this.  Toddlers are tyrants. I try to stay calm, cool, and collected.  I read positive books to build my spirit up and get my soul feeling right again.  Yet daily I’m run down emotionally by tiny tyrants.  Sometimes I just accept that I can’t be that great at this parenting thing.  I have to say “no”…

7 steps to a cracking kids’ craft station – Parenting Twins Article

So I have been putting together a kids’ craft station over the past 6 months. I took over some Ikea Trofast drawers, stocked them up with a few art supplies and waited to see what would happen. What followed was: a lot of cutting and sticking. I haven’t got involved in the adult coloring movement myself, but I really do get it as a very basic form of art therapy. My kids love craft at any time, but when they…

Jaxon and Brady’s Journey: Another answer! – Parenting Twins Article

I’ve been waiting until after Jaxon’s physical therapy assessment was complete to update. We saw the therapist that he had for awhile as a baby. She pulled out her old notes on him, which were really interesting. Everything indicated his right sided weakness, even the fact he couldn’t take any assisted steps unless you held his left hand only. Oh, hindsight…Anyway, she had me called back to the room where she assessed Jax. The first thing she said was, “I…

Jaxon and Brady’s Journey: Rehab Clinic – Parenting Twins Article

The rehab appointment proved to be extremely helpful. Jason came with, which was really nice to have the extra ears as well as the extra help in providing information in the physical sports department. Having Jay there meant I didn’t have to come home and ‘give the news’ to him. Instead, we were able to digest it all day on our own and then later in the night connect back about it.The doc listened to a lot of history about…
