I write a mummy blog about my experiences with my four boys, including my six month old twins. I have written a little post about some of the nice things about having twins that I would love to share with anyone who is feeling scared or worried about having two at a time.
Now I know it's against Mumsnet rules to post a link to my blog and I really don't want to upset anyone, but I know I would have loved to have read something like this before I had my two to counteract all the bad publicity twins get. So if you would like to read it, or know someone who might enjoy it please contact me for the link.
I am not doing this in any way to publicise my blog or get more readers, only in the spirit of cheering up anyone who is in the twin doldrums.
Glad it did, that was the idea. I read so much bad stuff about twins before I had mine I was a jelly of fear before they were born, but in my experience there is a whole lot of lovely stuff that more than makes up for the hard work.
Blimey, did you get the rose tinted specs from tescos?!
I'm happy for you that you have found it really positive. Personally I really wouldn't have found it helpful when I was struggling with mine, as I'd have jsut felt even more guilty about finding it hard!
I have a positive about twins. Eventually they go to school!!! Roll on september.
Ahhh I thought that post was absolutely lovely! I met a lady in Boots yesterday who looked terrified at the thought of being 22 weeks pregnant. I just thought how unbelievably lucky she was and hope I gave her that impression. I feel lucky every single day that I'm a mummy of twins... even on the days where they are being horrors which are becoming more often now they're getting older. I find it more entertaining than anything though as they copy each other and encourage each other! Thank you for posting that ) (Drunk Tinkerbell - mummy to Andrew & Daisy who are 19 months)
