I wanted to share some twin advice to Beyonce from one twin mom to another. If you heard (or seen) Beyonce announced on Instagram that she’s expecting. Not only is she expecting, but she is expecting twins. Seriously, check out this baby announcement.
First of all, congrats on expecting twins! It’s a special club. Obviously, not everyone can simple enter this club. My first piece of advice I am giving you is to enjoy your pregnancy! It’s a pregnancy like no other. What a blessing to grow one baby, but two. It’s a mind blowing and even more beautiful. As their body moves within your belly, it’s great sight to see and feel.
Enjoy them while they are little. Seriously, one baby is cute. Twins are extra cute. Enjoy holding them. Seeing them interact with each other.
Remember that twins=one person. They are two individuals. Give them a sense of individuality. People will always compare them and treat them as one or think all twins are the same. Make sure you and Mr. Carter remember their individuality. Spend time with them separately. Discover their individual interests. Give two different distinct presents on holidays.
Furthermore on individuality, adjust your expectations and standards. Yes, they were born at the same time, but they may not do everything at the same time. One may crawl way before the other by a month or two. One may have a different learning style than the other. Discipline can even be different for one than the other. One may respond differently than the other.
Finally, find your twin mom tribe. There’s nothing like swapping stories with a mom of twins. Getting tips and tricks or just venting to a mom of twins. We get it and we got you.
Congratulations Beyonce! On behalf of twin moms (famous or not) welcome to the twin club!
