Brookline Patch Column: The Brookline Parent

I'm pleased to announce that Nomi and I are now columnists for Brookline Patch, with the lead story for today.

Nomi and I are writing a bi-weekly column called The Brookline Parent, all about what it's like for us to raise twin children in Brookline. Our first column, "The Morning Routine," paints a picture of what it's like to try to get ready for the workday when you have twin daughters who enjoy creating chaos.

I've written the first column that's up now. Nomi and I plan to alternate columns, although I'm probably going to write the second one, and she'll write the next two. We edit each other's columns anyway, so our column is really a joint effort, even though they'll be written from either her perspective or mine.

Go read it and enjoy it! Or, at the very least, enjoy the Brady Bunch-style picture montage of the four of us that accompanies each column.
