Left me wondering why she didn't have more help at home. One person found this helpful. In this book the author writes about her life raising twins. I have twins and this book is far from accurate! I bought this book hoping I could relate to some of the things the author went through raising her twins and either my twins are little devils or hers are little angels. My life with twins is just not that easy! Would have liked to been able to relate to the author but couldn't!

Fast forward to My kids are in school and Amanda Hamm has written her own very funny book on parenting the first year with twins. Like Ready or Not, Double Take offers a positive perspective, which is a welcome contrast from the doom and gloom warnings we twin parents often hear.

She's a good writer--surely the entries from Section I were originally written for a pregnancy blog? The book is full of humor with a healthy degree of snark. I certainly prefer this kind of personal approach to that of the popular Girlfriends' Guides which are gossipy and essentially cobbled together from a variety of different peoples' experiences.
ywukakyzin.ml: Double Take: My First Year as a Mother of Twins eBook: Amanda Hamm: Kindle Store
Perhaps it helps that Amanda and her husband and myself and my wife have similar parenting styles. Not that we do everything the same, but in terms of managing expectations and spending a lot of time with our children, I think we're on the same page. Amazon's Product Description honestly describes the book as "a collection of essays" and I think it might be useful to carry that to the title as well; perhaps something like, "Double Take: Also, and some may feel this is nit-picky: While I totally appreciate the preference for privacy, if an author is uncomfortable using children's real names, why not pick fabricated alternatives instead of initials only?
In this case, reading about newborn twins M and G, toddler J, and older child Y throughout the book made it harder for me to connect with the emotional content of the stories. But overall, Amanda's advice is right-on and her approach makes this book easy to enjoy. I would happily consider giving this as a gift to friends expecting twins. As a mother of twins who has just made it through the first year, I found Amanda Hamm's book an incredibly fun read. Her essays capture the simple everyday struggles of twins very well, but even more importantly she finds the humor in those stuggles.
Even now I find myself smiling in rememberence of passages that mirrored my daily experiences.
