#TalkToMe: The Biggest Lesson I've Learned as a Mom of Two Sets of Twins

I know my children have some idea that our family structure is unique. They see people's reactions to hearing they're all twins. But we've never discussed how it all came to be.

I know my children have some idea that our family structure is unique. They see people's reactions to hearing they're all twins. But we've never discussed how it all came to be. I never sat my kids down and told them how scary it was or how much I wanted them all and I've never given them the forum to ask me what I've learned from being their mom.

When the Huffington Post invited me to be a part of their #TalkToMe series, I knew it was something I wanted to do. I told my kids we would be making a video where they could ask me questions and they took it so seriously! We came up with a few questions together that we wrote down, but by the end they were asking me things that they really wanted to know.

When we made this video, my older twins had just turned eight and my younger ones were five. I now have a recording that I'll always treasure.

And I may be biased, but I think it's pretty darn cute!
