The giggles of babies who are trying to latch onto your ample ‘twin skin’.

Rushing home after a call from the most patient, loving in-laws who let me know my children had puked all over them/the carpet/couch. Scooping up my little sickies and being complete-outfit-change vomited on three times in the space of 20 minutes. Loving their sad little puke faces more than ever.

When you look down to see your son chewing on a [wrapped] condom that he found on the floor. At church. While a wonderful woman is praying for your children.

Yep.
