How do you find raising twins. I have boys and they are a handful. Any helpful tips?

Well my boys are not twins, but are only 364 days apart, and due to the first being a 29 week premmie, they are the same size now and basically have the same needs! I think as Kathy said, daycare one day a week helps hugely for sanity, and activities like playgroups and toddler dance groups are great for a bit of structured play. A great support system like family doesnt hurt either. I also think one on one time with each of them is very important too!

I have 2 and a half year old girls and they are a big handful (or more) too. Shopping is a no-go as is anything that interests me. I look at friends who have older twin children - and figure, they survived, so will I. I find the playground the best place after daycare 1 day a week (my day) and we do playgroup on Wednesdays. I try to make time to do an activity with them everyday, singing and dancing works well. And I do alot of praying and really enjoy a glass of wine in the evening - it's amazing how helpful that can be.
