I got a present for my babies...

The Crest rep was giving away free toothbrushes today so I got a Disney princess and Winnie the Pooh toothbrush! Its fun getting kid stuff. I know it'll be a while before they'll need them, but you can never start too early, especially if its free!

I also met 2 mommies of twins this week. They are both patients, one has 2 1/2 month old boy/girl twins and the other has 2 1/2 year old boy/girl twins. They have both given me lots of good tips. After listening to them for a while I noticed something... neither of them gave me real good answers to questions about night time feedings or how often they woke up, or if they woke up the other twin when the first one woke up, things like that. Thats because both of them have night nannies (they both happen to have separate day nannies too!). The one I met today actually said "you mean you're going to try to do it with out nannies?!?" and looked at me like I had 3 eyes or something. I bet neither of those women have a loving, caring, HELPFUL hubby like I do!

They both mentioned the importance of joining a Mothers Of Multiples group. Apparently there is one for North Atlanta (www.NFMOMC.org) and there is also one for intown mothers, which would be easier for me to get to but apparently isn't as big (www.intownatlantapomc.org). Both moms said the best part about a MOM group is the Consignment sales. They say you can get matching outfits brand new! I think thats really cool. I want my girleys to dress alike as often as possible. I'm sure it'll also be nice to know other twin moms and maybe join a playgroup.

Well, thats all for tonight.

It's great there is a support network - AND the consignment sales should REALLY help. But - the best support and best help you'll get is from that wonderful, loving hubby of yours!
Love, Dad
