As any twin can attest to, growing up you’re often referred to as “double trouble”, “handful”, “expensive”, and a laundry list of other negative compliments and stereotypes. (Eye roll here). I never quite understood why people would think having twins was that big of a deal. We are two people, how is it any different than any other sibling situation? Then I started thinking back to some of our tasmanian-devil twin specific moments. Screaming matches, destroying anything in our path as babies (victims included innocent barbie dolls to bedroom wallpaper), stealing our brother’s Halloween candy, elbow fighting during piano duets, getting our car’s wing-mirror clipped by a taxi on the way home from the club at 18 (and hiding it from our parents for a year)….Wow, mothers of twins everywhere deserve a gold medal!! And throughout it all, our memories are full of amazing birthday parties with homemade Sesame Street cakes, dinner parties, bbq’s, travel, and lots of laughter. The common thread to all the happiness, and inspiration for DineGirl has always been memories of great food. Where would any of us be without our wonderful mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and all the other amazing women in our lives to inspire us?
Mother’s day is Sunday May 11th. It’s not too late to order the flowers, make brunch and dinner arrangements and book a spa appointment for all the fabulous moms out there who truly deserve a small token of thanks!
In case you’re thinking beyond brunch and flowers, we stumbled across this fabulous weekend-getaway any mom would love! A luxurious food and wine experience in Napa Valley. Maybe dad can pick up the tab……
