The Boys: Raising Identical Twins

Sat, 16 Sep 2017
I ended this blog four years ago, but messages still trickled in now and then from people wondering whether I could put these posts in book form so they could give it as gift to family or friends. So I did!
Raising Identical Twins: The Unique Challenges and Joys of the Early Years combines the six years worth of blog posts with facts, advice and studies specific to children who share DNA. It is intended to entertain and inform while, hopefully, spreading some of the happiness and love our twins have brought us throughout the universe.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it. 

Available in paperback and for Kindle from Amazon
Available for Nook from Barnes & Noble

"The phrase 'working mother' is redundant."

--Jane Sellman

Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother.

--Oprah Winfrey

"It would seem that something which means poverty, disorder and violence every single day should be avoided entirely, but the desire to beget children is a natural urge."

--Phyllis Diller

"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother."

--Abraham Lincoln

"I can no more disown him (Rev. Jeremiah White) than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother — a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe."

--Barack Obama
