NOMOTC / SCMOTC / TTMOM

As soon as I found out that I was having twins i started looking up support groups for others that were expecting twins. What I found was an entire community. Not only comprised of those that were expecting but also who had had their twins already.


I began attending meeting for my "Mom Group" in October or November of 2008. The first meeting was a Round Table Discussion. The location that we meet at is perfect for this as it is a bunch of table that are split into age groups. The first being pregnant to 12 months, then 13 months to 2 years and so on. This is where I met my first connection to another MOM (Mother of Multiples), Aimee. Her twins were born at 28 weeks gestation and  were in the NICU for quite a while. They were born on Cait's birthday in 2007. There wasn't a meeting in December but they have a Breakfast with Santa every year and although I was heavily pregnant, I still took Cait after her skating class. When I had the twins the next month, Aimee was beyond generous and came to visit while I was in the hospital. She gave us the car seats that her kids had used since they were now too big for them. That right there was the best gift.


I have continued to stay current with the other MOMs and I am now the Chair for Ways and Means 2010-2011. I keep up to date with the National Organization through their magazine called THE NOTEBOOK and through facebook. It was first brought to my attention in the magazine about a convention that they have every year. This year it was in Toledo. Next year is Chicago and 2010 is in Charlotte. I was hoping to be able to make it to Charlotte in 2012 but now that we have family in Chicago, I am aiming for 2011. Maybe even bring the kids and they can visit family as well, making it an extended vacation instead of just the week is a possibility in my mind as well. Funds are what will make or break it.


I hope to be able to make more friendships with other MOMs and connections that will last throughout the years. Being able to connect to others that share the same challenges of raising multiples is priceless.

First Day of Kindergarten

Today was Caity's first day of Kindergarten. The school year officially starts on August 30th but since she is going to be taking the Korean FLAG Program, they have a 3 week Summer School from July 12th to July 30th from 8am to 12pm.

This morning started out VERY well! She got up at 645am when it was time to get up and go potty, eat breakfast and get dressed. I wasn't sure how long it would take for us to get ready with everyone getting up so early but we had 20 minutes to spare so we (the kids) might get to sleep until 7am tomorrow.

We got to school and she even got to be the first in line.

We found out that her teachers are going to be Ms. Youn and Ms. Park.

She even made a new firend (Joseph) and they had enough time to pose for some SILLY pictures:

Her HomeRoom is Youn. I am assuming that it is the Korean teacher because she said she couldn't understand very much today but she still had fun.

We made it to about 930 at school when Mommy got a call from Ms. Wong in the office because Cait went with a buddy to the bathroom and consequently got her finger caught in the door jam. Ms. Wong kept describing it as SQUISHED. She sent me a picture and I rushed out of my class to go get her and we went to the Emergency Room at Glendale Adventist. I was told that she didn't cry very much about it and was a very brave big girl. They had put ice on it to control the swelling and that helped.

This is what it looked like when I picked her up. The dent was gone and it had swelled up from being banged around and squished for so long.

She had fun at the hospital. She got to be in her own room and not just divided by a curtain. The security, triage nurse and Doctor all loved her! She was Little Miss Chatterbox the entire time. Very interested in everything that was going on. They took her temp, then her weight and pulse. Security gave her a Sponge Bob sticker and she loves it. He even came back and asked how the Princess was doing.

We got x-rays done, Mommy had to stay outside. It is not broken thankfully but we are still going to keep a splint on it for the next few days just to keep it straight.
