I too am a single mom of twins and it is reassuring to hear that I am not the only one and that the problems I am facing are similar to others. Mine are currently five weeks old and if it wasn't for the support of my family coming over and helping when they can, I don't know what I would do. Just having someone to talk to and the company is often what I need. While it is nice to get out of the house once in awhile, I do like having family/friends over just to talk to. I am currently fighting for custody of the babies; the father wants joint physical custody and I feel they are too young to get bounced from house to house. I feel that they need to establish a regular schedule/routine first. He of course doesn't understand this, he wants what he wants. Everything is all about him. I have thought about moving back in with my parents for a few months or at least until the babies are sleeping more through the night. It will be a lot for my parents to take on but I plan to do as much as I can of course. Again, it is more about having the extra people around to reassure me that I am going to be okay in the end.
