Becoming a mother is rarely what you expect. Jane Roper never expected she'd have twins'or that they'd be such a spirited twosome. She didn't expect that finding the right balance of work and home would be so tricky. And she certainly didn't expect she'd grapple with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder during her daughters' toddler years. But she also didn't anticipate just how much joy, laughter and self-discovery motherhood would bring. Full of warmth, honesty, occasional advice, and a generous helping of humor, Double Time is a smart and engaging account of the first three years with multiples and a refreshingly candid and vulnerable look at clinical depression. It's a memoir that will resonate countless women'especially those parenting in double time.

This memoir is awesome. It deals very frankly with the difficulties (divided attention, logistics of going outside your baby-proofed house) and joys (two babies laughing at once, hearing them say each others names in their cutie baby voices) of having twins. It also deals frankly with postpartum depression. It's engaging, funny, and conversational, and really well written. Like having a funny friend who also has twins.
