Summary
  • "What do you do when you find out you're pregnant - times two? When Jane Roper found out she was pregnant with twins, she searched high and low for a memoir of the first years with multiples, but came up empty-handed. Four years later, she wrote the book she wished she'd had as a new mother of twins. Double Time is an entertaining, up-close and very personal look at Jane Roper's first three years raising twin daughters. From trying to get pregnant to processing the idea of twins, from round the clock feedings and diaper changes to the joy of watching "twinteractions" between her girls as their (very different!) personalities emerge, Jane tells all. Meanwhile, she struggles to keep a history of depression under control--and find answers when her symptoms get worse. All this while falling steadily in love with her duo as they grow from sleepy newborns to mischievous toddlers with a penchant for potty talk. Full of warmth, honesty, occasional advice, and more than a little humor, Double Time is a smart and engaging account of the first three years with multiples, as well as a refreshingly candid and vulnerable look at parenting, clinical depression, and the quest for work-family balance. It's Jane Roper's story, but it's one that will resonate with countless women--especially those parenting in double time"--
  • "Double Time is an up-close and very personal look at Jane Roper's first three years raising twin daughters. From trying to get pregnant to wrapping her head around the idea of twins, from round the clock feedings and diaper changes to coping with the Sisyphean logistics of two babies, double tantrums and differing rates of development, from trying to be super-mom to struggling to keep a history of depression under control, Jane Roper tells her story in a voice that is funny, self-deprecating, smart and completely natural. Full of honesty, warmth, occasional advice, and more than a little humor, Double Time is a smart and engaging account of the first three years with multiples, as well as a refreshingly vulnerable and honest look at clinical depression, the struggle for "me time" (hah!), and falling in love with a devilish little duo who are determined not to nap at the same time"--
