NURSERY REVEAL: DREAM NURSERY FOR THE TWINS

When I found out we were expecting twins, I was very tempted to get a decorator to help us put the nursery together. We bought our home not so long ago and are in various stages of decorating. Each room has at most 3-4 pieces of furniture and each have one thing in common – they are all incomplete. I wanted to make sure the nursery wouldn’t end up in the same category. After we selected the room that would become the twins’ nursery, I knew I was not interested in having it painted white. Instead I went for this soft…

TWO TO FOUR

Being a mom of twins and having a career is a balancing act. Everyday is a learning process with its own set of challenges. Almost every week, I feel like my babies take turns going through some major milestone or learn a new skill. At times, it can be slightly overwhelming because I am going through it times two. In the end, I constantly tell myself to take a deep breath and take it one step at a time. Lucky for me, I have two moms in my life that have extensive experience in child care so they provide me…
