Full-Time Grandma Duties – I’m getting old!

So for those wondering where I have been the last several days, here is the explanation. First, you all know that my amazing twin granddaughters, Violet and Valerie, were born on March 10.

20 Things You Didn’t Know About Twins [Infographic]

This week’s infographic is 20 things you didn’t know about twins! I had to find something related to my twin granddaughters. Now the infographic, while about twins, isn’t specific for the most part on identical versus fraternal. My new twin granddaughters are fraternal. That means they are actually no similar than any other two babies born at different times actually. Fraternal twins happen when 2 different eggs are fertilized. Identical … Continue Reading →
