With many thanks to my husband, Alastair (cameraman) and my daughters, Elsa and Clio, whose entirely unprompted performance was absolutely brilliant.

I’m pre-ordering several copies. I was looking for a present to say thank you to my daughter’s wonderful school advisor, who has 6 year old twins and is leaving the school. Will be glad to give her this book plus Alastair Moock’s CD with the ‘Twins are Twice as Fun’ song. I hope my brother, with 10 year old twins, will read it. I definitely will. Thanks (and love the video)

Oh, and email me (jane at janeroper.com) if you’d like some (free) signed bookplates!

Holy shit, that video is absolutely hilarious! I had to click pause because I was laughing so hard. Your facial expressions are priceless. Oh Jane, further proof that we live the same life. The girls’ “performance” is so similar to what my girls would do. LMFAO! XOXO

Thank you!! I swear to God, we didn’t say a think to the girls about what to do. We didn’t even tell them to come over to the table. I just sat there and we started filming and voila…

My favorite part was when the doll hit you in the face… LOL (at least we can laugh about it, right?)

I’m reading and loving your book (in between working and taking care of my 9.5 month old b/g twins) and I just found this hysterical video – what more is there to say!! Your girls are precious and your writing and sharing are wonderful. I’m in the Boston area but can’t make your MOT talk.

Thanks so much, Richelle! I’m so glad you like the book, and appreciate your commenting! Maybe I’ll catch you at some other MMOTA event.

My name is Jane. I’m the author of a memoir, Double Time: How I Survived–and Mostly Thrived–Through the First Three Years of Mothering Twins, and a novel called Eden Lake. I blog here from time to time about parenting, life, work, writing, surviving the crappy little boat trip of childhood cancer, and whatever else pops into my small head. I’m a freelance advertising copywriter, and I write lots of other stuff, too. You could say I’m kinda busy. But I like it that way.
