    Posted 01/16/2013 02:32:22 EST

    When DD1 was born, we got the toy box that went with the rest of the furniture set we were getting. It wasn't used much for all the reasons others mentioned.  When we had to fit 2 cribs and a twin bed more »

    DD1 stopped napping at a bit over 2.  She was always a kid who was capable of going all day without a nap even as a baby without any problems.  Once the twins were born, we ran out of places for kids more »

    I'm going to go on record as one of the MOMs who until about 18 months thought the work of having 2 outweighed the joy and it's ok to feel that way too.  Now after 18 months, it's become fun since the more »
