My husband and I were your typical no-nonsense kind of couple.  We were high school sweethearts, and dated through most of college.  We got engaged when the time was right and we were married a year later.  Life was perfect…

Nine months later, *SLAP!*  I’m… (deep breath) pregnant.  We always said we were going to take the “natural” route to parenthood after we got married.  We weren’t going to try, we weren’t going to NOT try.  Did we realize that meant I could get pregnant so soon?  Probably not.  I was excited but apprehensive… (aren’t we all the first time around?)  Will I be a good Mom?  What will my family think?  OH MY GOD, I’ve never changed a diaper!!

Parenthood.  We felt like we were preparing for a typhoon while living in a house of twigs.  HOW are we going to do this?!  We bought a house and a dog and settled in.  In the end the pregnancy, labor and delivery went perfectly and I delivered a handsome baby boy.  We fell in love instantly and knew all would be well.  Six months later we celebrated our two year anniversary with our son.  We were happily married, we had a house, a crazy dog, an adorable son and we were still deeply in love.  Life was getting back to perfect again…

*SLAP! SLAP!*  I’m pregnant, again… with TWINS.  All common sense left me and I was thrilled!!  Twins!  Oh joy twins, I always wanted twins!!!  Then reality hit.. “How the hell are we going to go grocery shopping with THREE carseats?!”  I had a six month old baby at home.. three babies huh?  Bring it on.  At 35 1/2 weeks I delivered two beautiful baby girls.

My “older” daughter was born with paralyzed legs and clubbed feet.  Doctors don’t know how or why it happened.  It just… did.  It was heartbreaking but inspiring.  Something set off a trigger and I decided to go for it.  “Supermom”.  Within a few months I took motherhood to a whole new level for myself.  What’s that level you ask?  Insanity.

In three short years we went from lovebirds hot off the matrimony train to two lovebirds, two babies, one toddler, a hyperactive dog and a partridge in a pear tree.  Can I do this?  Only time will tell.  In the meantime I decided a blog would be the perfect way to chronicle the joys and disappointments of all that is now my life.  I’m a Supermom in the making, and I absolutely wouldn’t have it any other way.
