History

 

The Sonoma County Mothers of Multiples club was founded in 1993 and is located and open to all parents of multiples that live in or around Sonoma County. 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 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!
