A Day in the Life of a Mom with Twins

A Day in the Life of a Mom with Twins

My guest today puts a great comedic spin on the daily duties of a mom. Kids are a handful regardless of how many are running amok, but double the amount mess, fits, and chaos and I can suspect what a day in the life of a mom with twins is like. (more…)
