To the moms who have multiples between the ages of 12 months and 3 years: There will come a time. . .


There will come a time when you will return to the scene of the crime. The one place where you lost control. . .where chaos reigned. . .where complete strangers asked if you needed help. . .where one child ran away laughing while you ran after him (not laughing) with the other child tucked under your arm like a football.

IMG_1203Your children will play in the sand box and share. . .and not throw sand.

Heck, you could have even brought a magazine. . .

I am a mother of two sets of twins and a singleton. I explore the wild world of multiples and provide resources for other parents of multiples.
