I gave birth to 3 babies within 18 months and started this blog to speak in a real way about parenting twins and one more so close in age.  I am a social worker, blogger, hockey mom, and a bit of a health and fitness nut and my babies are growing up way too fast!!!

    Just found your blog. I’m a mom of twins as well although my babies are now in high school!

    I stumbled on your blog via the TagSurfer. I have 16 (almost) month old identical twin boys. I know you’re one up on me, but I totally get your line: “trying to avoid completely mentally decompensating” :-)

    I also had to have a giggle when I clicked on your blog – I’m using the same Bueno theme. It’s a small world…
