Having a twin mom best friend is the best.
Well, I wouldn’t actually know. I haven’t found the twin mom I click with like Lisa from the Modern Day Working Mom has.
Today she is sharing with us what it is like having a best friend who also has twins! Talk about goals!
Here is what Lisa has to share with us today.
Heres the truth about having a twin mom best friend
I met my now best friend, Katie, when I was a freshman in college at Oklahoma State University. We got paired together as roommates freshman year and I had no idea what was in store for me! I grew up in a tiny town and she was from the city. She was a talker and I was quiet and reserved. But we quickly bonded and became quick friends. That friendship only continued to grow and blossom throughout college, and luckily continued once we graduated, even though we have always lived several hours away from each other. I was a bridesmaid in her wedding, and she was one in mine. Who knew that a stranger who got randomly picked to live with you in college could end up being your best and closest friend?
Imagine our surprise when we found out we were both pregnant with twin girls at the same time, due a month apart! We often joke that God knew exactly what he was doing, because we needed each other for this huge new part of our lives. What I want to share with you today are 5 reasons why having a “twin mom” best friend is the absolute best!
- We always have something to talk about. Not that we have ever really had a problem with that, but it’s not uncommon for us to talk on the phone on our way to work most mornings during the week. It’s our time to vent about what’s going on in our lives, and most of the time, that includes our kids!
- I always know what’s coming. Katie’s girls are a month older than mine, so this was super helpful, especially in the early months. I always had a heads up on what stage was coming. It doesn’t always work that way now that they’re a little older, but this was a huge benefit when they were little!
- Our girls have built-in best friends. Sure, we live 4 hours from each other and don’t get to see each other as often as we’d like, but I like to think they’ll be best friends for life. I’m already planning their years together at OSU!
- We get to bond over finding cute clothes! Shopping for twin girls is so much fun. It’s the kind of fun I really didn’t expect when I got pregnant but has turned into almost a hobby of mine. I dread the day they don’t want to match anymore! Even better when we get outfits for all 4 of them to match!
- She just gets it. There is absolutely no judgement when I call to complain about how hard twins are. She knows because she is right there in the thick of it also. She knows when to give advice and when to just listen. And I try to do the same for her.
I know how hard it is to make friendships as an adult, so I know how lucky I am to have Katie as an established friendship already, but I urge you to go find “your person”. Find someone, whether they are a twin mom or not, who you can trust and build that friendship bond with. The truth is, I don’t know what I’d do without her.
I love what all Lisa had to share about having a twin mom best friend. I think God really did know what he was doing!
