We’ve put together a Twin Parent Checklist – our take on the “essentials” for twin parents as you navigate through the first years as twin parents. If you’re a twin parent, check it out and tell us what you’d add!
I share this list of “10 Gift Ideas for Parents of Newborns” not to beg for any of these gifts, but to share some really thoughtful things people have done for us as we welcomed the twins. Ok, ok. There are a few things on the list that we haven’t received but it’s my passive side listing some of the things I could use help with when I keep telling people there’s nothing I need except for prayers. To be honest, I am doing too much and it’s impeding my healing process (my incision had to be reopened in order to heal). It is my pride, and I need to suck it up and realize people are really out there that care. If you are looking for gifts for parents of Newborns, hopefully this list will inspire you. If you feel strongly about helping me out, browse the list and throw an offer at me. I’m not about to get on my knees and beg anyone to help me put away my laundry…but I will publicly admit I just keep having Greg wash the same three outfits over and over and over…so there’s that.
Disclosure: FamilyFun Magazine asked me to share their Toys of the Year with my readers. Because I know how hard it is to find the “just right” gifts for the holidays, I thought this would be a good fit with my blog. I did not receive product in exchange and am sharing the info from them with you.
My mom seriously is the best shopper I know. She always finds really cool stuff and spoils the kids.
For Easter, the kids got great pillows–a duck and a monkey–that made me jealous. And since the kids are growing up super fast and outgrowing their hooded beach towels (which they’ll need when swimming in Virginia!) and Mr. Evan demands to wrap in a towel for what feels like hours after a bath, she got them new, bigger hooded towels.
