WOW! Where have the years gone? The picture on the left is what my kids looked like when we first opened for business - now look at them! They have almost outgrown their crib! The oldest of my triplets (the one in the blue jacket) tried to climb out the other night. I guess this means the time has come for big kid beds.
Guess what? It only took fifteen years, but I am proud to announce that they are finally sleeping through the night! Now, if I put them to bed by 11 p.m., they sometimes sleep straight through breakfast and lunch! I can hardly believe it. I know, many of you new mothers are frustrated and think it will never happen. Trust me…it will! Just be patient and give it a little more time. Once they cut their twelve-year molars it will only be a couple more years. You will get your life back, I promise!
What? You could care less about my kids and their accomplishments? You would like to know more about Just Multiples and how we got started before you decide to shop with us? Okay, I think I understand. Well, I have my twin sister, Lisa, to thank for this. She is the one who inspired me to start my own business.
If you look below, you will see a baby picture of the two of us. We are not in a crib because we didn't have cribs (or car seats) back in the 60's. In other words, we are just lucky to be alive! Actually, I think we had cribs, but definitely not car seats.
I can't tell you who's who because our mother never labeled our photos! For those of you who have identical twins, please remember to label the pictures you take of your dynamic duo, otherwise you will torment them for the rest of their lives. For whatever it's worth, I am beyond stressed every time I look at a family album. It's really weird for me to look at a picture and not know if I am looking at myself, or someone else - it freaks me out!
As for our more recent "adult" picture, thankfully, I know who's who. My twin is on the left and I am on the right. I am certain of this because, without any hesitation, I labeled it!
Back to Just Multiples and how we got started…
Since I have already gotten side tracked, I will make a long story short. Back in 2000, my twin sister published a book and created a website to promote it. Since I knew it "takes two to tango", her accomplishments inspired me to do the same. Two years, one month and four days later, I published the first edition of The Multiples Manual, and also created Just Multiples.com.
Several years have passed, and we now offer a variety of products for families with young twins and triplets. We hope you enjoy shopping on our website and find something useful for yourself, your children, a family member, or a friend. Regardless of whether you decide to purchase something, please don't forget to label your children's photos!
