History

The purpose of the club is to bring together expectant and current parents of multiples, provide resources for support and multiple-related needs, provide education benefits and programs concerning children and parenting, participate in research concerning multiples and/or siblings, and to provide social opportunities for members and their families.

Funny parenting momentI said "You scared the crap out of me!" in front of my 4 year old and now its his favorite thing to say, especially in public
 
Favorite family tradition: Instead of reading before bed my husband and I tell our kids made up stories that include silly characters. We incorporate our kids into the stories and they love it.

If there was one mommy duty that you would never have to do again, what would it be?
 I really disliked potty training our son. It felt like it took forever and it was hard to be patient. I still have our twin daughters to potty train when they get older. Fingers crossed it will be easier with them 😉

Favorite part of raising multiples: I love seeing how our girls interact with each other. They are just about to turn 1 and they follow each other all over the house. My other favorite is watching there big brother play with them. He is so protective over them and it warms my heart to see the 3 of them sitting together on the floor playing.

Board Responsibilities: Maintain the website and respond to media inquiries


Funny parenting moment: Recently we pulled ice cream out of the fridge after dinner and asked the boys if they wanted any and in synchrony they both yelled "YEAH!!!!!" My husband and I were cracking up!

Favorite family tradition: We love to coordinate Halloween costumes!


If there was one mommy duty that you would never have to do again, what would it be? If I could never wash a dish again I would be the happiest woman in the world.  Our sink is never empty!


Favorite part of raising multiples:
Witnessing the sweet moments when they share hugs and kisses and say "I love you" to each other. On the rare occasions when they are apart or when one gets hurt, the way they long for each other and want to comfort one another is so special. And they are only 2.5! I can't wait to watch their bond grow.




NCA Rep: Kim

Board Responsibilities:
 I am the contact between SCMoM and NCA.

Funny parenting moment: Every night my husband and I sing songs with the boys before they go to bed. We always end with the song Skidamarink. In the song you say “I love you” at the end and we always say their names. One night the boys kept singing additional verses: “I love you Mama, I love you Dada, I love you Grandma...” My husband noticed they didn’t say Papa (his dad and their grandpa) so my husband sang, “I love you Papa,” and the boys just burst out laughing uncontrollably. They just kept laughing and laughing and my husband and I laughed as well. We still don’t know why it was so funny but we love that memory we all shared together. 

Favorite family tradition: Setting up and decorating the Christmas tree. I loved this as a child and now with my own children. I can’t wait for this Christmas! We are going to surprise the boys with a train circling around the base of the Christmas tree


If there was one mommy duty that you would never have to do again, what would it be?  Cooking dinner 

Favorite part of raising multiples: Seeing the bond between my two boys. Also, since birth my husband has had to be an equal parent helping with the boys. He can do everything child related the same as me. I don’t feel worried if I leave the house and the boys are with their dad. He’s got it covered!
