This "multiple" world I now belong to....

It's a strange thing, an odd realization that I am now a part of this community of parents of multiples. It really is a community. The support is amazing, the resources are incredible and you really feel a part of something cool, unique and desired.

It really is true that only parents of multiples can get what you are going through, and although other parents are an incredible support and the friendships they bring are irreplaceable...there is something to be said for the friendships you form with other multiples parents.

I feel like I got access to this secret club that no one else knows about, or that only famous people can get in to.
We have names for each other like, MOMS (Mother's of Multiples) and we refer to parents without multiples as parents with singletons.

We have cool websites just for us and we see everything in doubles or more.
The other cool thing is that being a Mom of multiples puts you in the group of twins or more. There isn't a special 'triplets' club or 'quads' club....more than two babies at once and you are all friends for life.

I have found an incredible community of MOMS in the blogging world...it's been fantastic and I feel like I could call any one of these amazing MOMS and have a heart to heart. I feel like in an instant we would all be best friends.

I met Samantha, (we actually haven't met yet)...we were introduced via Facebook through a mutual friend and her twin girls were born about two weeks after my boys. We have walked through the last several months of our pregnancies together online and have given each other tips and encouragement.

All this to say....this Mom of Multiples thing is crazy. It's intense and it's wild...but thank the Lord that because of it, there is a great and deep camaraderie amongst other MOMS and it's not about competition, it's about helping one another and supporting each other no matter your background, belief or location.

I have to say...it's just pretty darn cool.

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
