Some weeks being a parent of twins feels like an extremely tough job. During these times, it’s helpful to keep in mind all the wonderful things about being the mom of twins. Here are some of my favorite things about being the mom of twins, in no particular order:
You get 2 babies with 1 pregnancy. A two-fer! Now that’s what I call efficient.
Watching them make each other laugh. They are always sending each other into hysterics, like they did here.
They will always have each other, which will be great during those tough teenage years.
Twice the hugs, kisses, and cuddles.
They are different, yet the same. It’s interesting to see 2 people who have so much in common (like the same birthday and same life experiences) behave so differently.
It’s fun to watch them play together, bring each other toys, give each other hugs.
They are a miracle.
“Chasing games” around the house are twice as fun!
They get a lot of attention-and so do Mom and Dad because everyone has questions!
They have a built-in companion.
Little old ladies go nuts over baby twins. It’s such a joy to see how they bring joy to others.
Everyone loves to share with you about the twin that they know. It’s amazing how many people have a twin in their family or are dating one!
I couldn’t think of any more favorite things about having twins. If you are the parent of twins/multiples/children close in age, I’d love to see your favorites in the comments!
