This is my shameless plug for diapers.com.....
So recently I placed my first diaper order at diapers.com. Wow, what an awesome idea to have your diapers delivered to your door. Typically, I would pack all the girls up, take my fistful of coupons and head off to whatever store has a sale that week. Of course I would come home with a huge assortment of diapers - none of which were the brand I preferred - but feeling satisfied that for the next 2 weeks I had found the most economical way to keep my babie's butts dry. Seriously, when you need to buy 300 or so diapers every 2 weeks (that's pushing it between the 3) you've got to work the system. My favorite was shopping at the local Kroger. Occasionally, you can print $3 off coupons online for their store brand and end up buying a pack of 56 diapers for around $3.50. Pretty good deal right? Until they stop letting you print the coupons or they expire. So, I decided that I'd price the diapers at diapers.com and see what was what. They have buy in bulk cheaper prices, but the thing that sold me was the discounts. They offer a first time buy discount, free shipping, referral cash, etc. Then, when I found out I could send in my coupons and they would credit my next order, I was sold!!! I get to use my coupons too!!!! The diapers arrive in two days, and no more special trips to the store for diapers for me! Thank you diapers.com, thank you!!!
Instant Savings: Use referral code JTIG8044 to save $10 on your first order!
Tip for MOMs: Huggies and Pampers will both send you extra coupons if contact them and let them know you have twins.

Then I open my eyes and I see my darling little Maggie just grinning from ear to ear up at her Mommy. Then I look down at my angel Ella and see that she is totally content, and Karlie Bea, bless her, says, "ok mommy, you ok?" And I reply, "Of course love, I'm ok, are you ok? You must have been very scared."
Thank God that's over.

Yep, it's the twins. Karlie (my 2 year old) had all her teeth by a year. Maggie and Ella are 3 months old today, and we officially have teeth coming through. You can even see them. Poor little things. Time to break out the teething tablets...aka Baby Crack in our house. 15 minutes after a couple of tablets and your sweet, smiling baby just came back. I wanted to mention those because I've talked to 3 different people in the past 2 weeks who have never tried them. Try them! They make their/your life so much better! They are the only thing that really worked with Karlie. We even tried the whiskey on the gums thing with her, but after talking to other folks realized we were doing it wrong. Apparently you rub whiskey on the baby's gums, and then the parents take a shot. That's what makes it all better. And, as much as I love a good shot of whiskey, I can't really be doing shooters in the Wally world or wherever else we are that day. So, later today I'm off to the store for some Baby Crack. Hopefully they'll work for you too!!!!

For those of you who don't know, MOM is also known as Mothers of Multiples. Obviously I'm not a new mom - my oldest is 2 (that endearing age when "No, I don't want to" is the automatic response to every question asked) - but I am definitely new to having twins. The twins are wonderful, beautiful, happy babies. For those of you with any question in your mind, there has been NO post-partum. I am quite content without 2 babies inside of me kicking in different directions. In fact, in that last month there was some question in my mind whether I could even love these 2 who had decided to make my organs their playground. Of course that all changes once you push them out (yes, it can be done without c-section). Actually pushing them out gives you the sense that you finally have control over your body again. That is until you realize that you will never, ever, ever sleep again. So, I've created this blog to be my sounding board, journal, and own personal outreach program for anyone interested.
