Today I received the new moms of twins and higher order multiples magazine: Notebook. In it are a few things I just had to share:
I have decided to change my vocabulary a bit:
- my life isn't hectic with three times the feedings, diaperings and clothes changes it's dynamic and brisk
- my house isn't messy with toys and clothes scattered about, laundry piled up and dust bunnies running amok; no, it's an interactive laboratory that is set up for the exploration of the social and kinetic dimensions of the multiple relationship (got that?)
- my children aren't fighting each other or trying to take things from each other (or hitting each other in the face) - on the contrary, they are practicing crucial negotiation skills for their future, powerful, high-paying jobs across the spectrum of business, medicine, technology and/or government.
And then the author added a quote from Mark Twain which I feel is just priceless:
"Sufficient unto the day is one baby. As long as you are in your right mind, don't you ever pray for twins. Twins amount to a permanent riot. And there aren't any real difference between triplets and an insurrection."
Here's to the end of April! Wait, what? How did that happen?
