Mothers of Twins Clubs?

I became a member of our local Twins Club a few months ago because they have an awesome garage sale. I scored a changing table, 2 matching white sleigh cribs, some blanket sleepers, and paid my 1 year membership all for $135!

Tonight, the "new mom meals" chairperson brought me baked manicotti, caesar salad, and garlic bread.

I love these people. Click here to enlarge

Wow!! It sounds like you have a great one. Click here to enlarge

Ours was a complete waste of time and really just the local mommy olympics. You know, Junior knit his own afghan in-utero, etc. Click here to enlarge

We never joined ours, either. They do have great consignment sales, though.

They meet at an awful time, like 7pm on a week night. And, they have someone who gives a little lecture. Like I need advice on closet organizing. Click here to enlarge

Glad you like yours though. Click here to enlarge

This was my experience as well.. I joined and it was a total waste. They never did any good activities. I joined my local moms club and have been thrilled with that.

I wish there was a Twins club around me. The local Moms club is very clique-ish and very fundy and semi-1950's housefrou-ish. The only support I got was/is from Twinshock.net.

So far I haven't made it to a meeting, but they have lectures. The last one was by a kindergarten teacher about starting twins in school, so they sound more pertinent than closet organizing. Click here to enlarge

We didn't join because of little time, little sleep. The web site wasn't good - no good information, no discussion. If I had time I prefer more fun than meeting about twins. Click here to enlarge But I wonder if we should join for information.

I recently joined one here in my area. I live in a pretty large area, so I had several to pick from. The first one I didn't care for too much - most of the twins were over 20 and out of their houses, and I was really looking for a younger crowd. I really like the current one which I joined their stork club. They have a massive consignment sale, their meetings are at an inconvenient time but not any worse than the other club, they serve us dinner, and there is a lecture, but the last one was on positive parenting and I enjoyed it.

I'm also a twin myself, and I have fond memories of club gatherings from the child perspective, so I really wanted to find something similar for these wee babes.

I looked into the one that serves where I currently live, but it's definitely geared towards stay at home moms. All the meetings are during the week, mid-day. The topics they talked about were very umm...uppity.

I'd love to get involved with a good one though. To actually be surrounded by a group of parents who won't give me the "wow, I don't know HOW you do it" lines. Same way you do it dumpass, just doubled. Click here to enlargeroll

I'm tempted to join for the sales too.
