We all have heard that life changes after you become parents. And I was well aware of that before my twins arrived. But experiencing it altogether is completely different. Every day is beautiful and challenging, something new to learn and teach. Every time I would accomplish something as a mom, my girls would move on to the next milestone and I would have to figure it out all over again. Motherhood with twins is exhausting and fulfilling in its own way. One might not appreciate its beauty at that time because frankly you would probably turn into a zombie due to lack of sleep for months, but there is always light at the end of the tunnel. When my babies slept through the night, the next day was a whole new beginning.
