And this is the new book I am very much looking forward to receiving in the mail. Let me just tell you that there are quite a large amount of "twin/multiple" books to choose from on Amazon. So how did I pick this one, you ask? It had the cutest cover and looked the least cheezy. Good strategy, I know. But it does advertise itself well on the cover since I DO need real-life advice from pregnancy through the first year...and beyond. And I suppose that books will have to do until I make more mommies-of-twins friends.
Speaking of....the current issue I am debating is whether or not to join the Moms of Multiples club of Edmond. Here is why I'm hesitant. I get extremely annoyed being around any person who is a know-it-all. And for some reason, I have seen many a normal person turn into a complete and total know-it-all, dispensing unwanted and un-asked-for parenting advice once they become a mom. It makes my skin crawl thinking about it. I can only imagine that moms of twins are twice as annoying (ie. "This is the only way to do this", "Well I do it this way because this is the best thing for my baby", "You have to have this toy/device/bottle, etc.", "Well so-and-so did it this way, and her baby is not as advanced as my baby", blah blah blah) You get the point, and I'm sure have all come in contact with a similar individual. Not that I don't want advice, because I do. And believe me I will ask you if you I want it. I just hope when it comes time for me to actually be a mommy that I am more like some moms I know, and less like others.
Ok, I'm done ranting. And somehow got horribly off topic. Multiples club. So I really want to join because I truly do want all the information I can get my hands on. The good, bad, and annoying. So that when it comes time to actually take care of these 2 little ones, I will have a variety of options to look at. I suppose I can always disappear if I find myself surrounded by mothers-of-twins monsters. What do you think?
