Between getting kids dressed, fed and out the door on time mornings can be hectic! What tips do you have for making morning routines easier?

I wake up an hour and a half before the girls do. Which means I wake up at 5am! Ugh! But it also means I can drink a cup of coffee, shower, and do blog stuff in peace and get the girls breakfast started all before they wake up. It's made getting ready so much calmer and I have more time to play with them in the morning because I've gotten so much done before they wake up.

People often say twins and other multiples have an extra special bond. Has there ever been a time when you noticed an especially unique connection?

I notice that the girls don't like to get too far away from each other. They like to stay within ear shot of each other at least and tend to go looking if they haven't seen their sister for a while. And if one wakes up before the other, it takes a lot of work to keep her from going to wake sister up. But I almost don't mind because it's so sweet and they are so happy to see each other.

What are your tips for celebrating joint birthday parties?

With only one birthday under my belt, I don't have any tips yet. But I love birthdays! I can't wait until the next one!
