"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"--

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.
