Hey everyone. I don't think I ever mentioned on here, but my wife is currently pregnant with twins. I just thought I'd share the news that we found out on Friday that they are boys. I'm pretty excited, since we already have a 2 year old little girl. (Yep, we're going to have three kids under the age of 3. Help!)

In the meantime, I'll be doing my best to crank out some stories. I don't expect I'll have much time or energy come August.

Congratulations and good luck! My three are all two years apart. I am sure they will be equal parts joy and terror

Good for you!! I have a gradeschooler and then 2 under 2. I call them my home destructo kits. It is definitely survivable if you remember that it's okay if they cry. I learned too, working in a jail, that if you can hear them screaming, they are alive and some days that's what counts the most. I also learned to prioritize; vital things, very important things, important, and get to it when you can things. Perhaps your twins will inspire stories, my babies do.

Jusst a tip, I tried to return mine to walmart for store credit and they wouldn't take them without a receipt.

I find reading stories to them before bed is part of what gives me the motivation to write - I'd like to tell them my stories one day
