About Me

Contact: scarytwins [at] yahoo [dot] com

How I got here:

In 2007 I came across one of my greatest college application essay. In it I wrote about the very first time I shaved my legs. I didn't hold back. I took a risk and I guess Syracuse University had sense enough not to hold it against me.

This little work of genius inspired me to start writing again. And as I picked up the box of memorabilia, my twins came barreling down the steps yelling about something or other. I looked at them and decided I had enough material to start a blog.

Where I came from:
I grew up in a small, Connecticut town about an hour north of New York City. I claim full rights as a New Yorker and often need to visit to get my fix. No matter where I live "the City" for me is, and always will be New York. DC is DC. Chicago is Chicago. LA is just strange.

Where I've been along the way:
I have traveled around the world and settled in the suburbs.

I have experienced the profound loss of my father just weeks after celebrating the birth of my twins.

I have learned that while I am responsible for my children, the only person I am really in control of is me.

Where I'm going:
My goal for this blog is to record my life, entertain those reading it, and when applicable, inform.

Hi. Found you over on Twitter. Your twins and mine (I have 5 yo identical boys) are about the same age. Raising twins is an adventure isn't it? My husband refers to it as "herding cats".
