o, it’s nap time (cue the confetti!). Your baby has just drifted off into dreamland, and you have an indefinite period of free time on your hands, but what should you do? Should you take a nap too, hop in the shower, grab a quick lunch? What about the laundry that needs to be folded, the dishes that are begging to be done, or the bills you need to sort through? Sometimes it can be hard to decide how to spend that precious nap time, especially if you

I am not a religious person by no means. However, I do have faith and believe in God in my own little way. I would consider myself more ‘spiritual’ than anything else. I believe in Karma and also that things… Continue

Anyone who has ever read my blog knows that I am a super advocate of
sisterhood. I think that cat fights between women are ridiculous and
that if we all spent a lot more time being real and supporting each
other, life would be so much better for all of us. Why does it always
have to be a competition? My kid does this, does yours? My husband
makes this much money, what does yours make? My house is bigger than
yours. It truly is a… Continue

My husband and I fold laundry together. It’s one of the only chores we can share and still enjoy each other’s company, not only because it’s the only household job that neither of us has passively and purposely fumbled to get out of, but because we joke around a lot while we’re folding, like we just met.
The conversation is also mixed with nostalgia.
“When did our baby start wearing size 12 jeans?” We hold the boys’ pants up to ourselves and observe how close they are to… Continue

My husband and I are terrible role models. I’m afraid our boys are never going to make it in the real world under our guidance. It’s because of my consummate rose-colored glasses and my husband’s black or white outlook. Our children are not getting a realistic education about the way the world really works. They’re screwed! Naturally, we blame our parents. But at least we’re aware… Continue

If you want to alienate your kids, create an atmosphere that says “I am the boss and you will obey!” On the other hand, if you want a relationship with your kids, create an atmosphere that says “I am here to help you!”
Communicating with your child is what will determine the type of relationship you will share. On going communication is what will allow the relationship to deepen and strengthen.
Parents are often so busy they forget the need to consciously cultivate a… Continue

I know that it is crazy to expect to have a moment of peace and quiet
to myself. I know that there are sacrifices to be made when you have
children. I am on board with that. I was not so oblivious to think that
my life would remain unchanged. I thought there would be changes. I
knew things would never be the same, but I was not prepared for the
magnitude; the depth and breadth of it all. When they were newborn, all
my time was spend occupying their time. My life… Continue

This Winter season has been unusually cold and has caused many at home or snow days with the children. When you are parents of multiples, it can seem like a very long day that never ends--basically GroundHog Day on repeat. The first day seems wonderful--snuggling underneath the blankets and watching a favorite family movie. By the third day, you are totally sick of the hearing the Elmo's World theme song and you really don't care if the kids have drawn on all the walls in the house with… Continue

How do you breastfeed multiples? Which formula should I use on my preemie twins? I want my multiples to have play dates, (other than each other), but I don't know where to take them? None of my other mom friends have multiples or understand what I'm going through? All of these questions and much more can be answered by joining a local multiples club.

Bilingual culture is a part of everyday society, including in the world of children. The proved benefits of children speaking dual languages have been reflected in schools and the media. From dual language immersion programs in elementary schools to television shows that portray bilingual children, such as Disney's Spanish Handy Manny or Nickelodeon's Chinese Ni Hao, Kai-Lan, teaching another language to a child has become highly recommended.
Most families of multiples have an… Continue
