You know those times when you read an ultra-cool post from a Supermom with the writing skills of a literary Prof. and you feel totally jealous and wish you could be that awesome?! Well, this isn’t one of those posts. You can relax on your well-earned, stretchmarked mamabutt knowing that I’m no better than you and that I am equally – in fact no, far, far more – clueless than you.
I’m a mom of twins who has been thinking about blogging but could never quite be bothered to do anything about it. That’s why my twins are now 18 months old and I’ve only just put the proverbial ink to paper (ahh, bless – remember writing??).
See that paragraph I just wrote? I initally started it with “I’m a proud mom…” and then went on a mental tangent thinking about the concept of being “proud” of being a mom. What does that even mean? Am I proud that they’re still alive and therefore I’ve managed not to mess up enough to kill them before now? If I wasn’t a mom, should I therefore feel ashamed??!
This rambling is an attempt to introduce myself. Yes, I am more (and a lot less) than a mom of twins but my plan is for this site to be about the journey of this twin mama in all aspects twinny. I have spent many sleepless hours reading entertaining, funny, touching and informative parenting blogs and would love to become part of that community. I believe that the majority of parenting triumphs and challenges are universal and have nothing to do with whether or not you have twins. So join me, as I delve into this digital world of mamamania… despite being an 80s kid who only came round to the idea of a mobile phone without buttons about a year ago.
In all honesty, I’ll be impressed with myself if I post more than this initial blog… now there’s a challenge…
