This one is for all of the twin lovers and twins!
HAPPY NATIONAL TWINSDAY!
Many of our twin friends are headed to Twinsburg, Ohio this weekend for the national twins fest. We will be missing this year, due to the new bundle of joy but can’t wait to introduce him to all of the fun next year.
I’ve added a link to read an article I’ve written for Multiplicity magazine regarding when is the right time to let your twins or children do the work themselves. (Click & Comment…would love to hear your thoughts)
TwinDolls and friends in our favorite summer collection
Here’s a fun summer read and interesting topic I had the pleasure of working on see link:
Wellie Wishers!! The new book series and dolls by the American Girl brand could not have come at a better time. It’s officially the count down to the last days of the school year and those wonderful 5 -7 year old girls would appreciate an introduction to a bit of adventure from the garden stories along with a new best friend to dress up.
After meeting Valerie Tripp – the wonderful author of the books, I knew that even I would enjoy a trip down the American girl memory lane; with this new series of friends and so I began reading to the Twins as soon as they arrived home from school.
I made a brave mom of twins choice and surprised both V & K with the Ashlyn doll because of her love for dance and fun (personality to suite the girls) and received smiles and kisses of approval. The girls immediately began to play based on Ashlyn’s personality and interest which included a perfectly fitting tiara and tutu.
Thanks to the new Wellie Wisher friends we will be spending lots of summer days enjoying pretend play with Ashlyn and cannot wait to include her other friends Willa, Camille, Emerson and Kendall!
Today I thought I’d share some fun pics that include a bump date and how much the girls are excited to be becoming big sisters…as well as how humbly blessed I am to be on this journey in life.
When Twindollicious started it all came to me at a time where I knew there was a fun message to share with many people about twins. I wanted to share our personal experience as well as some fun facts that most twins experience in their lives. I knew that there was a message to share but didn’t expect to be helping families; sibling bonds and others on the path to creating stories or businesses of their own. As a business; I can say Twindollicious has developed from fun. Whether we are enjoying collaborations with others or feeling creative… It’s all wrapped up into one lifestyle.
Now almost 3 years later a life changing experience has come along with all of these opportunities. We’re adding a little boy to meet the world of Twindollicious and couldn’t be more anxious and excited!
As I enter the last trimester of pregnancy our calendar fills with meetings and deadlines that needed to be fulfilled…. And heck I’ll humbly do so. Because prior to having a voice to share stories on sibling bonding, confidence, writing, and the life of an independent mom-preneur there was a question of ….”ok I love children, they like me , I love to help people; now how can I add my life skills and knowledge of behaviors to allow everyone to share their story”.
We will be sharing talks at domestic violence seminar, attending a woman’s entrepreneur conference and sharing some goodies at a vintage gallery within the next couple of weeks and can’t wait to share details with everyone.

We took some time to think about whether or not a warmer climate vacation would be good for our family. After making an deep intuitive decision in addition to all of the possibilities with the Zika virus (especially while entering my second trimester ) Lancaster, Hershey PA was a perfect pick.
We added a bit of history along with amusement park fun to this memorable weekend.
Recommended Top selections for visiting these locations:
1. Amuse the children by taking them on the major road in Amish town to see horse and Buggy drive around…(our most amusing was spotting them parked by the outlet mall shopping).
2. During chilly weather conditions the double tree resort is a perfect hotel choice ( honestly not advertising). Al of the kiddies love to swim or else it wouldn’t be a vacay?!
3. Hershey park: roller coasters are top choice for these 5 year olds. Especially if their heights are at the point of Reese’s. (you have to check out the fun height chart check). This helped the girls choose rides independently.
4. The Hershey history ride wasy top choice because it was the only one this pregnant mama could enjoy.
5. Also inside chocolate world : th create your own chocolate experience is all kinds of fun with great photo opps for the kiddies to look back on.
These activities can be enjoyed during the summer as well… We just may return This YEAR!
Our close to home Spring break has Coe to an end but never with a dull ending. We saved the best part of the week long venture for last.
The little artists at heart were due for a trip to some of NY’s great museums.
Guggenheim was number one on the list followed by Cooper Hewitt.
By the likes of V& K the Guggenheim’s architectural sound made for great conversation amongst the girls. However the best part may have been visiting the gift shop where they scored a Kandinsky coloring book and a post card for their favorite art teacher.
While at Cooper Hewitt ther was an abundance of interactive exhibits for them to see, yet the most exciting part was scanning in all of the exhibit codes with the magic pen. There’s this cool pen shaped marker that is given to each visitor, which allows you to scan in your exhibits of interest then laterite urn to the website with your code to retrieve all exhibit information.
Kennedy preferred to spend the entire time in the Pixar exhibit area while her Vittoria enjoyed the interactive design table used with stylus pen as well.
Soon hunger set in and as I said before Kennedy would have stayed in Pixar the entire time yet we convinced her that a night at the museum may not be fun….. To be continued for our close to home Spring break happy little innovators.
Spring break is here and so is the Spring issue of Multiplicity Magazine. I had the honor of collaborating with this awesome editorial once more and thought it would be helpful while the kiddies are at home. Exercise the mind and body of your children by attending a gym class, playgroup or simple at home activities that will give them a minute of instruction that stretches into 4 minutes focus time. The article topic focuses on the popular diagnosis of children with ADHD. However research shows that all children engaged in mindful exercise enhances their discipline to focus. On that note….. I hope you enjoy this article and the fun activities you may have planned for your littles while they enjoy their time off https://issuu.com/twiniversity/docs/multiplicity_spring2016_single_/1
