On the Struggles of Parenting Twins
- "A blowout? I can't do it — I end up with sh*t everywhere! There is sh*t on the boy; there is sh*t on me; there is sh*t in my hair. And I'm like, How did this happen?"
- "You put one to sleep and you lay him down, and the other one has been asleep, but then that one wakes up and the other one wakes up so then everybody's crying, then my husband and I are crying . . . You're like, 'Oh, my God!'"
- "We put them down, say 'mommy and daddy love you' in Italian and Spanish — we'll get to that later — and then we walk out and they're having a meltdown. So then you have to time it, then you go in. And my sister, I'm like, 'Can we go in? Can we go in?' 'OK, go in now.' And we go in and I'm like, 'What do we do?' No eye contact, just say 'mommy and daddy love you' — in Italian and Spanish — and she would come pull us out. So by the third time, it had been 45 minutes already. We were kind of buzzed. It's heart wrenching. My husband doesn't drink and he's like, 'Gimme that bottle!'"
- "We have a tribe. Whenever we're overwhelmed – and when you have twins, you get overwhelmed quite easily and really quickly – you send out an SOS, man. And they will cancel. They will find a nanny for their kids."
