At five weeks old, both babies sleep through the night. Doug and I put them down at seven p.m., and they lie quietly in their crib for a few minutes before drifting peacefully off to sleep. They do not wake again until seven a.m.

Doug and I put the older kids to bed by eight. Then we get to work on our separate projects for a couple hours: Doug writes code for his website, and I write scintillating blog posts like this one and also work on my soon to be critically-acclaimed, award-winning, and bestselling novel.

Life with twins is good, baby.
