Just moved to Tacoma/Ft. Lewis 2 weeks ago... I'd love info on homeschool support groups in the area. I heard that there was a great HSing group on Ft. Lewis. Does anyone know about it? Also, any recommendations for chiropractors and dentists would be appreciated! Thanks!
Does anyone have a recommendation for a great photographer near Tacoma? My husband is finally returning from his deployment and I really, really want to have someone there to take photos. We haven't seen him since Christmas and he's been away from home for 20 months. I'll be by myself with my 6 kids at the homecoming ceremony and won't be able to take pictures so I need someone good to do it for me! Anyone have suggestions? Thanks!
My first set of twins were born at home (HBAC) and I don't have video, but I have a slideshow here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xi37qJ-mIoU
My husband is deployed and I've basically been single parenting for 16 months now. I'm not the best to offer advice though. I have no help. I moved from GA to VA to be near family but it was terrible. So I moved back to GA. I'm living with no furniture, no husband, and I'm pretty much over it. LOL But I am surviving! We just try to get out of the house as much as possible. I take all six with me to the store several times a week. We go everywhere together.
Got two sets already! Maybe it's just my situation, but I would hesitate to wish for two sets. I absolutely adore mine, don't get me wrong, but it is so exhausting. When my second set arrived I didn't get the homebirth I'd had with the first set, recovery was terrible, breastfeeding was difficult, etc. My husband left when they were just 4 months old and I was nursing 4 children until recently. My other children were all 5 and under when the second set was born,...
I got pregnant with twins while nursing twins! And I got pregnant with the first set while nursing too.

I have had people insist that I must have twins somewhere in my family-like I don't know. Despite the fact that both sets are MZ and it's not hereditary, people love to tell me I'm wrong sometimes! And yes, they ask about fertility treatments too. I even had my aunt accuse me of lying about fertility treatments after I had the first set. (I had a 3yo and 1yo when the first set was born so fertility was not really on my mind! It's a miracle we had time to have sex at...
