Featured Mom Of Twins ~ June 2009
2) HOW DID YOU DECIDE ON THIS BUSINESS?
I decided to create my blog when pregnant with my now 11 month old twins. The inspiration was that I was having a very hard time finding product reviews made specifically by mommies of twins. I wanted to be able to go to one blog and hear thoughts from a real life twins mom. I wanted her to tell me what she thought of the certain diaper bags, strollers, high chairs, and such. While I had 3 children already, I knew that the needs and expectations for a twin mommy were going to differ sometimes. Since I never found that place, I made it myself.
3) WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT THIS BUSINESS?
I love feeling like I am helping other parents out. I have fun sharing new finds and experiences with other parents. Additionally, I love reading all their comments on their own experiences on topics and products I have covered. It's a wonderful way to make new friends and hear new perspectives.
4) DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT ANY SPECIAL PROMOS, PRODUCTS, DEALS OR OTHER TOPICS?
I was recently one of 10 elite bloggers chosen to work on a special Hershey's Night at the Museum Movie tie-in promotions. I credit being selected with not only the quick success with my blog and my writing style, but also companies growing interest in appealing to the vastly growing multiples market.
The NOMOTC convention is a great way to have fun and relax while networking with other amazing parents of multiples. Registration information is available through the NOMOTC website at www.nomotc.org. I hope to meet as many parents at the convention as possible.
5) TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOU, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR TWINS AND HOW YOU MANAGE IT ALL.
I am a married Mommy of 5. My oldest son, J.C. just graduated from 8th grade this year and is off to high school in the fall. He's an amazing boy, here is a link to a recent post on JC.
My next oldest is my son, Hayden, who is 10. He was the middle child for a very long time around our family and had some adjusting to do when we added the twins to our family. Here's a link to his reaction to the news we were having twins.
My 3rd child is our only daughter, Cordelia who is 8. She was the baby for 7 years and will always be the princess of our household. She is a fabulous "sissy-mom" to the twins and does a great job of keeping her older brother's in line as well. 4 & 5 are our fraternal boy twins, Cormac & Declan (or Mac & Dec for short). They are amazingly little guys who keep the whole house busy and entertained. It is hard to even remember what life was like before these 2 entered our world. Each of them has wide different personalities and talents, yet they are equally adored. My husband and I feel the twins arriving last has been a real blessing. While the plan was to have just one more, and we probably would not have knowingly signed up for twins with 3 kids already, it has worked out so well to have all the extra help.
6) ANY ADVICE OR INSPIRING WORDS FOR OTHER MOMS?
I'd like to think I give it daily via my blog.
7) HOW DO OTHERS CONTACT YOU FOR MORE INFORMATION?
They can visit the blog, we welcome comments, they can also email firstname.lastname@example.org
