Thank you for stopping by our blog, Multiples and More! Started in 2009 by Amanda Nethero and Lani Lyons, we thought that it was about time we got together, and form a network, of families of multiples, and our friends who support us. Blogging is great for so many reasons, but the aspect of support that we gain from reading about others lives, learning from their experiences, and sharing our own is immeasurable. This led us to think- why not expand the “circle”, if you will, and create a blog network where people can connect with others that they would otherwise have never met, find families that have had similar experiences, and learn from those who have had different ones. We’re talking relevant articles, product reviews, featured bloggers, and lots of giveaways! Just consider us your Virtual MoMs Club!
Amanda Nethero is a 20 something MoM of fraternal boy/girl twins that are 4 years old. She’s also the wife to an amazing Southern gentleman, Scott, who works in security. Originally from Chicago, Amanda now lives outside of Orlando, FL, but sadly does not have the tan to prove it. Some of her favorite things to do with her family are check out the theme parks, go to the beach (with SPF 3000 at least), and cook. When she’s not running Multiples and More and all of the awesome opportunities that come with it, you can find her at Twice the Love…Half the Sleep, on Twitter (@amandanethero or @multiplesnmore) or on Facebook. Feel free to contact Amanda with any questions, comments of concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org

Rebecca’s Corner: Rebecca is a 37-year old (oh, say it ain’t so!) mother of b/g twins that she’s affectionately dubbed “The Crazies.” They went through IUI and IVF before getting lucky enough to get pregnant…and stay pregnant…for 38.5 weeks. Rebecca thinks they’d still be in there if it were up to them! Her blog is all about honesty and telling it like it is…a friend of hers once said that “honesty is my ONLY policy” and she has to agree with her. Rebecca get through her days with the Crazies using humor and a touch of pinot grigio! Hey, a girl’s gotta have something, right?
