Simple advice for a new twin mom
07 Nov, 2018 ·
Meet Sara, mother of 4 little boys (last two are twins!), wife, creative, and twin herself! I asked her to share the best piece of advice to anyone expecting twins and her response was:
"The best advice I got before Soren + Huntly joined us was to never say no to help. That there is no such thing as visitors, ONLY HELPERS. if you know me, you know how difficult it is to ask for help or to accept help. Makes me so uncomfortable. The continued reminder from other twin moms that I will need the help kept resonating with me so when someone offered, I reluctantly accepted. Looking back, that help was my life line. Although uninterrupted sleep seems like a lifetime ago and everything takes twice as long, my heart bursts with the love I have for these two and their older brothers. All the hard parts are definitely overshadowed by all the beautiful and amazing parts." -Sara
I love this simple yet very important advice she shares! It is so important to allow others to serve us. If you are a new mom, in a possibly new area and don't have a village of friends/neighbors coming to your rescue in times like this here are simple ways I have found new friends fast. I usually find friends in places I go often like the park, church, gym, and even my neighbors. I also think it is important to note that a village is most effective when it's diverse! A few of my closest friends are other moms I have met at church, women I've met at the park who have little ones similar ages, and even neighbors who are more than twice my age but my kids now call them grandparents.
