Jamie is the second of our new Twitter MoMs. She has the most beautiful family!

How Do You Do It?'s Jamie and her family

My name is Jamie. I grew up in a small town in Indiana, went to Indiana University, then moved to Salt Lake City, UT where I lived for 10 years. We moved to Las Vegas this past June, when I got to experience what 120 degrees really feels like!

Prior to having my twins, I worked in the senior health care industry as a Sales Director for retirement/assisted living and Alzheimers/dementia care. I absolutely loved it, but I knew that I couldn’t give 100% to both my kids and my career, so I chose to be a SAHM for their early years. Hardest job ever, but the best decision I ever made. My husband is the Executive Director for a retirement/assisted living.

When I have time to do anything besides parenting or cleaning, I like to see movies with my husband, get my nails done, read, and spend time with friends and family.

My oldest daughter, Ava, is five years old. She’s a beautiful little Barbie princess who loves horses and Hello Kitty. Her favorite things are preschool, dance, and going to the park.

My fraternal twins are Kaia and Elyana, who are 3 years old. They love to dance and sing. Elyana makes me laugh hard at least twice a day, because she is so cute and funny. Kaia is my cuddle bug. And she is fearless.

How did you find How Do You Do It?

Sadia told me about it after we had both posted replies to help a MoM in need on the National Organization of Mothers of Multiples page.

Do you have a favorite post?

I love all the posts! I feel like I am always in need of advice!!

What made you interested in Twitter?

I have been trying to write a blog post for a few months now, and finding the time has been hard! I knew I would be much better at keeping up with writing posts that consist of 140 characters or less!

What’s your vision for HDYDI’s new presence on Twitter?

I would love to be able to promote the blog so that it can be a helpful resource for MoMs, as well as moms of singletons. Sharing advice and experiences with other moms is the closest thing to a Parenting Handbook you can get!

What’s the best thing about being a MoM?

I love watching their twin bond and the way they interact. They can be so much fun.

The most challenging?

The most challenging thing… There are so many, I don’t know if I can choose just one! It’s hard to find time to myself, and it’s hard to leave the house. Oh, and potty training is probably the hardest thing I have done as a mother, period! Currently, those are my biggest challenges. But I would say that those top spots change often!

What’s your favourite kids’ book?

We love Heaven is for Real for Little Ones and Love You Forever.

Your favourite non-kid book?

My favorite non-kid book is a tie between Harry Potter and The Hunger Games.

Where is the most interesting place you have ever been?

Paris, France!

What is the greatest lesson you have taught your children?

Manners. We are still working on most other things!

What is the greatest lesson you have learned from your children?

Patience is a virtue. And that I definitely don’t know everything.
