I have boy girl twins who just turn two and we really need some new couches but I'm afraid of them being ruined. Any advice?

When they move out? LOL it depends on how much you use the room. We bought new couches less than a year ago and despite my rule of not eating on the furniture I'm the only one that follows it. So we put a sheet over to protect the cushions and take it off when we have guests over.

If you have strict rules about eating at the table or on a specific step, it should be okay. We have white armchairs and sofas, and the only damage that they've gotten in the two years since my son was born is from where I dropped chocolate ice cream on the seat! (oops, I should follow my own rules, I guess) Also some droopyness from my toddler constantly climbing them, but that would happen even until he's a teenager, if my guess is right. Teenagers flop down on sofas pretty hard, as I recall. :)
