An Exercise in Multiplication

A year ago this week, our family doubled in size from two to four. Or, if you count our two cats in the mix, we increased by 50%. Either way, the birth of our twin girls brought about quite a dramatic change.

Somehow, the amount of laundry tripled. How that’s possible from such tiny beings is still beyond me…

Our grocery bill quadrupled. Diapers + wipes + baby food for two growing babies add up quickly, coupled with the fact that Mommy and Daddy rarely eat out these days.

And I don’t even wanna attempt to count my exponential growth of grey hair!

But what I couldn’t begin to enumerate is the joy these babies have brought to our lives. First smiles, first laughs, first steps…all times two. I’ve always known that babies are Heaven’s gifts, but – at least in my book – twins are that with ice cream and a cherry on top. It doesn’t take a calculator for this mommy to realize her multiple blessings.

What a fabulous first post! Maths and emotions, not something I usually see together but it works here. Double the blessings, double the love! Sigh. Thanks for Rewinding! x
