Body Image After Twins: Learning to Love Yourself Again – Twiniversity

I’m excited to share my most recent piece for Twiniversity for so many reasons. I’ve always struggled with how I look, with my body. I’ve always wondered how life would be if I were skinnier or prettier. I’m guessing most of you reading this have wondered the same about some aspect of yourself. I’ve constantly […]

Multiplicity Fall 2015 by Multiplicity Magazine

I am excited to share a new piece I wrote for Multiplicity Magazine about how having twins will make you a better you (page 64 of the issue). When I first started writing this piece, I really felt like I couldn’t come up with anything, then the words started flowing. I ended by talking about […]

Is There Still a “Me” in There? Defining Myself as More Than a Mom of Three – Twiniversity

One of my friends and I have known each other since we were five, and we still joke that it feels like I’ve always had kids. Honestly, it sometimes is hard to remember life pre-kids. Like, what did I do with all my time?? It can be hard to find the time to do things […]

Multiplicity Spring Issue

I have to say that I love to write. I remember writing short stories and novellas when I was a kid. I even tried my hand at poetry and music. Of course, I never imagined that anyone would want to read my writing, let alone publish it. I’m thrilled to be featured twice in the […]

My Non-Identical Identical Twins – Twiniversity

I’m a member of my local twins group and it’s fantastic for most twin related needs, except for what it’s like to have one twin develop at a typical rate and the other to be behind. My NICU and preemie groups are mostly full of singleton parents, and the twins that are parts of those […]

Twins in the NICU :: Our 80-Day Journey Home – Twiniversity

Three Under Three, All Wanting a Piece of Me | Twiniversity

At the beginning,  it was a struggle for me to handle all three kids by myself and make sure that they all got attention,  especially Buds. I found ways to incorporate him into our daily routine based on the things he loves. In the end, I don’t want regrets when it comes to my kids, […]

Safe Sleep: Reducing the Risk of SIDS | Twiniversity

My second blog for Twiniversity is a much more serious one than my first. I have to say, nothing bothers me as much as seeing other parents post pictures of their wee babes surrounded by bumpers, blankets, and stuffed animals when they’re sleeping. It actually scares me and when I see those pictures, I just […]
