When the tide gets high

Where to start? At 28 we get married, at 29 get our first child and at 30 we welcome twins. Wait, got pregnant again at 30 with twins or delivered them at 30? Haha, delivered them. I was that breastfeeding Mom still figuring out how to handle a baby then boom, pregnant again. And just…
