There I was walking my infant twins in my double stroller with my puppy Zoe walking alongside us. I kept hearing people saying ” oh you’re in double trouble” and I thought of something magical to share with all of you…
Hi, I’m Tracy Murdock, Jesus loving wife and mom of twins plus one, and author of an upcoming children’s picture book, “Zoe in Double Trouble” and Your Twin Mom sharing faith and family fun!
My twins, Hailey and Matilda, came along 5 years ago as 2 little miracles delivered into my life from up above at just the right time. They changed my body, my hair, and most importantly my heart…and all for the better!
I just felt so loved by God that He picked me to be their mommy!! Looking in from the outside, there was so much in that first year that could be called “double trouble” from the double the diapers and double the spit up.
It really was a blessed messy year for me as a first time mom of twins. Really, motherhood seems to continue to be filled with blessed messes as our family grows, but still filled with so much love!
As much as I wanted to validate the unique struggles of the first year with twins, I wanted to highlight all of the blessings my twins have brought to my life. I wanted them to walk away from comments like “double trouble” seeing themselves how I see them as “double the love”. I see everyday how there are so many positive spins to having twins and how much good God places in their hearts to bless others they encounter too!
Plus, our dog Zoe really was my first fur baby and she did not do well with twins taking over her life at first. The first time she saw them, she looked so surprised and I think she must have thought they were like little aliens invading her territory. As time passed, she fell in love with them and embraced the sisterhood that came along with her twin sisters. Plus, she enjoys all of the cookie crumbs they leave behind for her! Heehee!
God put a dream in my heart to share this book and have it ready for them by the time they were 5!
Everything under the sun happened this year, from us moving to my toddler son no longer sleeping in his crib to homeschooling my Kindergarten twins, so I had to lean on God the whole way through! When God puts a dream in your heart, He will give you what you need to get to where He wants you.
P.S. Hi! I’m Tracy Murdock, author of upcoming children’s book “Zoe in Double Trouble”, lover of God and teacher made mom to twins plus one, momspiration writer & speaker in your twin mom groups on @yourtwinmom on IG or your twin mom group on FB or your twin mom on Twitter group!! We’d love for you to join Your Twin Mom Family for more connection!
When Hailey and Matilda read “Zoe in Double Trouble” with me for the first time at their 5th birthday, their eyes lit up and so did their hearts. A love light went on for them and emphasized how special and how loved they are in our lives and they embraced their toddler brother in all of it too as he is in a messy stage.
We laugh together at the messes of kids in the book and embrace each other uplifted in love in all of the positive spins in the “Zoe in Double Trouble”.
We are thrilled to share this lovelight in “Zoe in Double Trouble” with kids and families around the world so all children know that no matter how messy they may be, they are that much more loved!
Each word and illustration is designed with love in mind! From my heart to yours, enjoy this treasure for your family library! As a special bonus, a family keepsake is included at the end of “Zoe in Double Trouble” to grow your loving foundation even stronger, in faith and family fun for years to come!
Hugs and love to all of you, your kids, your twins, and your families!
