A MUST-HAVE FOR NEW TWINS PARENTS
"Smart, funny and refreshingly real advice that will change your life."
-Hollie Gyarmati, Author of The Mother of All Makeovers, designer & mom of 5 (including two sets of twins)
Seventeen years ago, Elizabeth Lyons wrote the bestselling, side-splittingly funny guide to managing twins in the first year. That book stayed at the top of the charts for over a decade. Since then, times have changed-and so has navigating Year One with twins (or any baby, for that matter).
Holy Sh*t...Im Having Twins! features the very best of Lyons hard-won advice, updated and expanded for todays new twins parents.
If raising one newborn was a workout (and it is), raising two (or more) is like competing in an Ironman...backward...while wearing banana slippers. Well-meaning friends will try to prepare you for the endurance event that lies ahead, but only a seasoned parent, writer, and mom of twins (who has three additional kids to boot) can do it with the honest, belly-laugh humor and tried-and-true proven strategies you dont even know you need (yet).
