When my twin girls were a few months old we were in the waiting room of the pediatricians office. There was another mom there with her twin boys that were about 6 years old and she told us she had another younger child as well. We were still in the whirlwind of having newborn twins and I remember how reassuring she was and it always stuck with me that she said “everyone should have twins first”. Recently having a third child, a singleton, I know what she was talking about. Going through the newborn stage a second time and doing it with only one baby is much easier, still stressful, but easier.
