Handling a Houseful

Take Your Kids Out

Getting the kids out of the house and into the sunshine will energize all of you. To avoid spending lots of time preparing to leave home with the children, however, you'll need to get as much as possible ready the night before: Choose the outfits, pack the diaper bag, fix some snacks, know your destination, invite a friend.

Don't Go It Alone

Never let yourselves get exhausted. Line up help-from grandparents, other family members, friends. Even students or a neighbor who enjoys being around children might like to come over and pitch in for nominal pay.

And note the numerous resources for parents of multiples, such as Twins Magazine, the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs, Inc., and The Triplet Connection.
