10 Ways Having Twins Changed My Life

17 May 2011

  1. I know the location and inventory of the children's department in every Macys within a 20 mile radius
  2. I de-stress by shopping for baby food flavours and brands
  3. No matter my reason for going to the grocery store, Walmart or Target, I always stop by the baby aisle just in case
  4. My best friend used to refer to me as the only adult she knew who took afternoon and evening naps. Not any more. My beloved early evening naps are now a very distant memory
  5. I can't sleep past 730am on weekends. Spice is having none of that
  6. I speak up more and let things slide less. I used to be very laissez-faire and anti-confrontational, but as a mother, I can't allow issues to slide.
  7. Ditto my appearance. I now carry the weight of being a style role model on my frequently unstylish shoulders
  8. Off the top of my head, I know a good price for Enfamil formula is 96c per oz and a good deal on brand name diapers is 14c per diaper or less (and wipes are good at anything less than 2c per wipe. Just sayin')
  9. I'm no longer tired leaving work. Instead I'm excited to go pick up my babies from the daycare
  10. I have a new and breath-taking understanding of God's love and the depth of His promise in Isaiah 49:15 and 16 "Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me"
