Miranda and I are reading a few different books right now on the subject of our new found affection:
Just last night I finished a wonderful book called "Ready or Not... Here We Come!" by a fantastic author and mother of twins, Elizabeth Lyons.
This lady kept me laughing the entire way through. Keep in mind, its not a book of comedy so much as it is a reference guide in the first year of twin rearing. But the way she words the description of her experiences will have you LOL'ing the whole time.
I actually spoke with her over the phone before I read her book and even though I'd never previously talked to her, it was like I'd known her my whole life. Her personality is amazing and it shines through in her writing.
Just a few topics include:
Before the Arrivals
-Preparing our Marriage
-Preparing Yourself Mentally
-Will We Be Alive in Three Months?!
-Unsolicited Advice (and how to respond)
-Get Me Out of This House!
-Top Ten Prayers for This Phase
-What Part of "No" in Unclear?
-New Car Seats - Again
-The Lucrative Garage Sale
-Playing Together (or Not)
These are just a very few of the topics Elizabeth covers in the book. The layout is great, especially if you already have a child or two. You can read a section at a time in a heartbeat and get back to rearing the chitlins until you have more time to read another little section.
Overall, I'd honestly have to give this book an A+. It was entertaining and super informative.
She gave us plenty of great ideas that will be put into place at the proper time.
Thanks, Elizabeth, for writing this book! I can't wait to read the next one - "Ready or Not, There We Go!"
