Try-it Tuesday: How to get your older children to accept twins

Several of you had expressed interest in knowing how my older children reacted to the addition of two brand new babies, so I thought I’d share my take on the long, arduous, excruciatingly difficult process.

You ready for this?

Step 1: Birth twins.

It’s kind of difficult to truly acclimate your children to their presence when the twins are still in your belly, so you’ve got to get them out. Even if it takes 5 days. Very important.

Step 2: Introduce older children to twins, and—this is the crucial part—let them hold them.

Like what you read? Like M is for Mama on facebook (pretty please?):

I love comments so much I'd actually consider making them my sixth kid if I could. Seriously. Love. And I read every single one and will do my darndest to respond, especially if you have a question. So, yeah. Comment away! I'm listening!
