6. You can do anything now

Being a parent of twin babies is hard, but don’t worry. This will make everything else seem easy in comparison. There’s nothing more stressful that trying to pay at the register while two babies are screaming and trying to climb over the side of the shopping cart (a.k.a. trying to break your spirit). If you can get through that moment, you can handle anything. What used to feel overwhelming and stressful in your pre-baby life is now a walk in the park. Hey, you managed to successfully grow two human beings inside of you at the same time, and then deliver them into this world. If you can do that, you can do anything.

7. Toys!

Having kids means that you get to relive part of your childhood – picking out only the coolest toys. You really have to buy new toys all the time to keep your kids entertained. It’s like a dream come true. They’re too young to know what they like; so it’s okay if you get them that tepee you always wanted, a pretend vintage kitchen that looks nicer than your actual kitchen, or a box of 30 different toy cars.

8. Vicarious living

Always wanted to be a soccer player, a dancer, an ice skater, a gymnast, a boy scout, a singer?? Go and find the sign-up sheet, and get yourself – I mean your kids – started.
