Twins x 4

Today we had a day of twins! At 10:30 we met my friend M. Her twins are about 23 months. They are identical boys are and so ADORABLE! However, watching them made me worry a little about things to come. They were here... then there... then over yonder... etc. She was smart and brought a friend with her to help keep track of them. She said when she goes alone she goes to a fenced in area. She is a fellow teacher... and such a good mommy!

After we came home for bottles, naps (while mommy mopped and vacuumed), and a little play time two other twin mommies came over for a play date. K and S both have twins that are about the same age as mine. S's are 1 day older. K's are 9 days younger.

6 babies and only 3 mommies can feel a little crazy! We had 2 boys and 4 girls. The two boys were the quietest. Zane slept for the first hour. Meanwhile, Bree let everyone know how loud she can scream. It was a little embarrassing to have THE loudest baby of the group! She just wanted to make sure everyone gave her all the attention!

We had a good time. The babies enjoyed watching each other. S's twins enjoyed trying out our little swing... K's twins enjoyed batting around some hanging toys with Bree. All us mommies enjoyed chatting with others who understand what life with twin babies is like.

I definitely need to do this more often... just maybe not 3 in one day.

Sounds like fun!

Also sounds like you'll need a balance - I think other twin moms are GREAT for knowing what it's like and giving advice. But friends with one kid are great, too, because (a) the parent/baby ratio is a bit more manageable, and (b) they will think you are supermom (which of course, you are).

Oh, yes... I do get out with lots of singleton mommies. It just happened to be a "TWIN" day.
