Favorite DD memory:  It’s so hard to think about just one favorite memory, I’ve had so many and this group of ladies has changed my life.  If I had to pick I think it would be the meals we’ve cooked at Ronald McDonald House; going and preparing a meal with these amazing moms and feeding those dealing with children in the hospital truly is a rewarding experience. The laughs we have while cooking are good for the soul!

Favorite DD memory: I think my favorite memory was a small group Mom’s Day Out at Balistreri Vineyards. It was great to get to connect with other twin moms in a kid free setting.

Favorite DD memory: My favorite DD memories are all about the people. I had a Big Sister in the group and she was the first person I turned to when my pregnancy got scary. Her compassion and caring brought me through some difficulty times and later I signed up to be a Big Sister too, hoping to pay it forward. Being part of DD has brought people into my life I never would have found on my own and for that I’m forever grateful. I look forward every month to meeting new people joining DD.

Favorite DD memory: The first ever Flip Flops retreat. It was so nice to get away from the stresses that come with parenting and reconnect, unwind, and get to know some fellow DD moms better. I really lean on my fellow twin moms for support, advice, and of course, laughs. Lots of laughs!

Favorite DD memory:  Favorite DD memory would have to be shopping at the Kids Stuff Sale when I was super pregnant and HUGE! A bunch of other members were running around and shopping for me: “Amber, how cute would your twin girls be in these dresses!??” “Ohmygoodness, you need a pair of these Rock-and-plays… trust me, you’ll thank me later!” And I do!!! You all are lifesavers. 🙂

Favorite DD memory:
The Ice Cream Social was our first event and we had no idea what to expect.  Everyone was so welcoming, letting us share their blanket to sit with them, gave us tons of tips on the girls, it was great to meet so many people with twins.

Favorite DD memory: The first DD meeting I ever attended.  I sat in on the new member chat and I immediately fell in love with the concept of the group and everything associated with it. That night was “My Favorite’s” Meeting and I enjoyed sitting back and taking notes on all of the items and favorites the ladies were mentioning.  Being a first time mom and just finding out I was having twins only a few weeks back it was all overwhelming.  I instantly felt connected to these women and encouraged.  I couldn’t believe how nice and welcoming these women were when I was just meeting them for the first time.  I joined the group as soon as I got home and I have been a member since.

Favorite DD memory: My very first monthly meeting had such an impact on me!  I had just moved here from Arizona, where I had very little support as a twin Mom.  Suddenly, I was in this room FILLED with other twin Mamas who knew exactly what I had been through.  I felt so connected to them without even having to say a word.  I had finally found my tribe.

Adding some “sparkle memories” to our lives is what we all need a little bit (or a lot more of) and so I am honored to facilitate some amazing moments to create strong friendships and special memories with other mamas in our group.

Favorite DD Memory:  One of my very first DD meetings, when many jaws dropped when they learned I had 5 kids all 5 and under with my twins being the youngest of the 5.  I loved the laughter during the meetings, the tools given from amazing speakers/professionals and the deep bonds I felt with gals I just met because they understood what a blessing and challenge it is to be honored to be a mama for twins.

Please contact me when you have any feedback for the newsletter or website. I am always open to new ideas!

Favorite DD memory: When I went to one of my first DD play dates with my new babies, everyone was so welcoming and accommodating. Everyone there understood the chaos and was willing to hold one of my babies so I could tend to the other one. I love the unspoken understanding we all have!

Favorite DD memory: Just one memory… that is hard as I have so many.  I think for me it was receiving a meal when my twins were only a few weeks old from another mom whose twins were only three months old.  This member touched me so much that day and has turned into an amazing friend!

Favorite DD memory: My favorite DD moment(s) is watching and working with a group of women for others. As moms we know how precious our time is, but belonging to a group of women that recognize giving back to the community is very rewarding. Having the opportunity to serve has been a very positive experience for me since joining DD.
