I'll never forget the most important words ever spoken to me. Some random ultrasound technician uttered with glee, "It looks like you're having twins."
Of course, having a baby changes things. I already knew this. I figured having a second child was going to change things again. But having a second and a third child at the same time?
While I am by no means an expert on the subject of raising twins, I do feel that after two years of being a dad to multiples, I now am qualified to share with you some tips learned in the trenches.
4 Make time for each other
In case finding time for yourself isn't hard enough, you also have to worry about finding time to spend with your partner. Get a babysitter or a family member to watch the twins even if just for an hour. Or, if money is tight, put the twins into a stroller and go for a walk with your partner around the neighborhood.
Or, sleep together. As in go to bed at the same time, just like you did when you were first married, before your life was dictated by the feeding, napping and changing schedules of two babies. Cuddling and passing out together can be a beautiful thing.
