Double the Fun – Survival Tips from a Twin Mum

I’ve so been looking forward to sharing this episode for quite some time. As a mum of a boy (and yes I am generalizing here with what I am about to say) I was not prepared for the amount of climbing, jumping, dare devil kamikaze risk taking energizer battery energy that little boys have and get up to. Sometimes I feel like I need eyes in the back of my head with my little one. And he just turned 2 not that long ago so we have a looooong way to go and lots of sporting pursuits to come our way. I guess it just came as a bit of a shock having a child that gets into everything after my daughter, who was a very “careful” child.

I just couldn’t imagine having twins (although before I was a mum I thought twins would be fantastic – have the babes all in one go??) but these days I cannot imagine at all having twins!

My guest this week – I take my hat off to her – is a mum to twins and yes you guessed it … TWIN BOYS! I know her personally and I know how amazing she is with them and how patient she is.

I thought we could all learn from her wisdom but certainly all the mums with 2 or more babies in their bellies right now or those with a young set of twins would be happy to hear from a mum who’s been in their shoes. She also discusses how important it is for mothers to nurture themselves, giving the example of when on a plane, a parent must put on their own oxygen mask before putting it on their child

It’s a GREAT episode and Sherry shares some fantastic parenting links that have also helped her navigate motherhood. Enjoy.

Currently Sherry is a stay-at-home mum on a mission to rock this motherhood thing. Sherry and her wife moved to Amsterdam when Sherry was 4 months pregnant and they had many adventures navigating a new city and creating a support system to help them through those first years.
