The arrival

The ups, the downs, all blogged! From the moment of hearing the words “how many have you ordered?” muttered by the nurse, to the day these two bundles of joy let out their first cry. Read about it all here.

When the good times roll

They are there (the good times that is!), I just found that you have to get through some extremely rocky periods before the good times roll. Read about how I coped…and how I didn’t cope so well with being a twin dad!

Adorable though they are, your time is no longer that of your own. Work on some hiding places, tactics and hundreds of excuses. A twin dad needs to be armed to the hilt to not only protect his own sanity, but to remain a man!

This twin dad

Welcome to my blog and forum site. The first point I would like to make extremely clear is, I love my family and three children dearly. To coin a very overused phrase (which I utterly hate) "they are my world". However, this does not mean I can't share some of the trials, tribulations and daily frustrations of being a "twin dad". This is by far from a "how to bring up twins" or "tips for being a better twin dad" blog. It is an open, honest and sometimes brutally realistic account of the day to day life of a very average, simplistic and often sarcastic, twin dad. I will also be supporting the cause and raising awareness for men suffers of Post Natal Depression along my blogging way.

The bad

Two new arrivals bursting their way in to your life, can cause unimaginable strain on your life and partner relationship. The day to day chaos can sometimes get a little too much!

No-Sleep

The ugly

Everything is different for a twin parent. The way you shop, type of car, a simple visit to the local supermarket and not to mention how you divide your quality time equally with your other kids.

Failing to keep my social up!

Being a twin dad, I found that keeping my social life afloat was extremely difficult, particularity in the first few months of the girls arriving. I went from sportsman to couch potato (holding babies!) at a very rapid pace. Needless to say, this does not help with your mood either. You.

The Twin Dad 10 Commandments

No.1 : Never put clean clothes on until approximately 0.2 seconds before leaving the house. This way you can avoid all kinds of child substances staining you. No.2 : Do not announce to family that are off to take a shower. This is your only safe/quiet place in the house. Protect.

“Girls!? You mean I have to play with dolls and stuff!!!”

This was a genuine concern. I mean, I had a son already, but to learn that I was going to be father to twin girls was some shock to the system. I was obviously very happy to learn of the news too, don't get me wrong about that. However, the.

Twin Dad Relationship Strain

It would probably take me a whole week to complete this blog post on the subject of relationship strain upon twin arrival. Of course I understand that every individual/couple is completely different, but I would bet my last penny that it would be extremely difficult to find a twin parent.
