You’ll probably hear incredulous comments from non-twin parents like, “How do you do it?”
Well, as with anything in life, I find a way. That way contains the secret to doing anything with twins.
One at a time.
Need to change a poopy diaper on both twins? Change one at a time.
Are both babies crying and you’re home alone? Soothe one at a time.
Spoon feeding both twins dinner? Take turns: one at a time.
Very rarely will you need to do whatever you are doing simultaneously with both twins. One exception would be if your house is on fire. Grab both twins and get out.
Need to load the twins into the car? One at a time.
Need to teach them how to walk? Walking one at a time will make your life a lot easier.

Time to potty train? One at a time.
Remember, twins may come two at a time but that doesn’t mean they need to do everything at the same time.
Just think, they weren’t even born at the same time. How did they arrive? One at a time.
