This is a post about twins and triplets :).

I met these adorable boys (below) at the Children’s Traffic Park last September, during the Multiples to Multiples Society fun day. Multiples to Multiples is a support group for those who have twins, triplets, quadruplets, quintuplets and… what comes next?

As I watched these boys skate their way through the park, having so much fun, pulling skating stunts, falling down, helping each other up, hi-fiving each other and all those things boys do together, it made me wonder when my boys will ever get that big (they are 2 years and 4 years). But I consoled myself because I figured there was a mother somewhere with an infant wondering when her baby will ever get to be 2 years old :). Patience Maryanne, patience.

Skater-boys

So anyway, if you’re a mum of multiples or know of one who is, then let them know about the Multiples to Multiples Society and that they can be a part of it. There is also a Facebook group of theirs that is very very helpful (open to both mums and dads), so make sure you join it too. Sometimes, you need the advice, comfort and support of someone who has gone through your exact same situation -raising twins or triplets, and that group offers just that.

Happy parenting!
