An amazing undertaking

I belong to a wonderful message board of mothers of multiples on It's truly an amazing community...many of the blogs I read belong to women I have "met" on there. One of our MoMs (mother of multiples) had the wonderful idea to pitch a show idea to Oprah: a favorite things episode for mothers with multiples. With the rise in twin pregnancies in the celebrity world, she thought it would be nice to hear what multiples are like from a "normal person's" perspective. No nannies, chefs, personal trainers...just real women struggling to parent 2 or more born at the same time. At the minimum (even if we never make it on Oprah) it's a beautiful way to hear the stories of many courageous, amazing women. Check it out!

In other news, we are under the belief that our computer has a trojan, so I am writing this post from D's work laptop. My BIL to-be is going to come work on it this week, but we may need a reformatting. Good news is that after 5 hours last night, I was able to get all the photos off. If I lost the pictures of the boys, I would be devastated!!! Hopefully we can get it working right again soon.

The first week of daycare/teaching is over!!! Daycare has been a rough transition, but the boys seem to be doing slightly better with it. Both are now sick with colds. Hopefully they'll feel better soon!

Hope everyone out there is well! Say an extra prayer we can fix our computer!

What a neat idea for Oprah. I know back when i first had my twins, my MOMs online group tried to get Oprah to do a show similar...maybe she will get the picture that there are lots of us out there. LOL

Hope the kiddos get better soon (and so does your computer!).
