Twins Are The New Black

On behalf of all the MOMs (that’s Moms of Multiples for the uninitiated), welcome to the world to the Carter twins (proud parents Jay-Z and Beyoncé and Big Sister Blue Ivy) and the Clooney twins (George and Amal). It’s an exciting time for you, as your family just grew by twice the typical amount. It’s also a scary time, as the first weeks of parenting a newborn can remind you just how fragile life is and just how much you hate your spouse, the entire world, and all of its inhabitants.

Luckily – and we’re just making assumptions here – you can afford a night nurse and a quality lactation consultant and a hospital grade pump. Put these things to good use and don’t worry too much about the thank you notes for the (useless) Tiffany & Co. baby rattles and the very very useful double stroller that we assume your book group chipped in to buy.

Parenting twins can be a funny thing. No matter the…

Exceptional Care for Children

I began volunteering at ECC almost a year ago and since that time, I have spent over 125 hours with some of my new friends.
