I went to my Mother's of Twins meeting the other night and enjoyed a time of pampering as we each received a chair massage -- what a treat! I was so relaxed I could have drifted off to sleep. I have been involved with the club as a place of support from others who have experienced similar situations with their twins. It is difficult for others who do not have twins (even those close in age) to understand "twin things". Now that our twins are 5 years old I go more to offer support to the new Moms.
However, I am often saddened by the attitude that seems to prevail in the club. Almost every meeting I hear a comment about how I possibly handle staying at home ALL day with my children. Many of the Moms work and they say how it a place to "get away" and "take a break" from their children. Now I am not saying it is always easy or that my children never drive me crazy because they do. But I enjoy being at home with my children. I delight to see them grow, learn and experience new things along with ME! I can talk with them, play with them, hug them close whenever I want to. Even for all of the trying times I wouldn't want to be anywhere but home with my children. I am so blessed to be a Mommy! Lord, may I always remember to delight in each child!
