About Our Family

Keith and Megg first met on one night in the fall of 2000, while Keith was a junior in high school, and Megg was a recent graduate.  They talked briefly that evening, and Keith was smitten by Megg, but gave no obvious indication (as far as he’s concerned).

Their paths crossed again in the summer of 2002 after Keith had graduated high school. They quickly became good friends, although Keith was still smitten and getting worse at hiding it.

Eventually Megg gave in to Keith.  The two began dating in February of 2003 while Megg was a live-in nanny 45 minutes away.  Their hearts would never belong to anyone else after this.  They married one month after Keith graduated from college in the summer of 2007.

They rented an apartment in central New Jersey, while Keith taught high school English and Megg continued to nanny, but in a live-out position.  They enjoyed their Vespa, began traveling the globe, and regularly hosted friends and family for each and every occasion they could think of.  Life was never more fun.

Two years later, they moved down the street and bought one house and two puppies on the same day.  While living there, they continued travelling and loving their dogs, living a very full life.  During this time, Megg could be found sewing, decorating their house better than any interior designer could, enjoying her love of photography, rolling on the floor with her dogs, and continuously baking.  Keith would spend his time running, cooking, and brewing his own beer.

After plenty of time for themselves, they decided that it was time to have their first child.  Then things took a crazy turn when the doctor told them they would be having their first and second child at the same time.  On August 11th, they welcomed their boy-girl twins, Scout and Griffin.

Then they decided to start a twin parenting blog to offer a glimpse of their lives as the parents of twins.

  1. Hello Keith and Megg,

    I’m not sure how I stumbled on you’re blog (Oh yeah! Was googling for bassinets for twins), but I’m so glad I did. It’s not usual for me to be interested in blogs but currently I’m looking for any help I can find.
    My wife and I just discovered that we’re having twins last Friday!! I haven’t read all of your posts but I did read the entry where you too found out and I swear that you wrote in words the state of mind that I’m experiencing, 2 cribs, 2 car seats, etc. The shock is somewhat dicipating but the freaking out part is definitely still there.
    Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for writing you’re experiences, sharing your lives, and just the fact that I know that someone else felt like me but figured out a way to get through it. I will continue to read through and hopefully find out how you did it.

    Thanks

  2. Hello,
    I just read your dad confession on the Twin site and saw that there was a time where your babes wore helmets.. i was wondering if you mind sharing why?

  3. Just wanted to say what a great article “Twin Dad Confession: I would not want my wife’s job” is on Twiniversity. Your family is near identical to my own. We also have boy – girl twins who are currently 4 & 1/2 months old. My wife worked in daycare before we had twins, and currently looks after them each day while I am at work. Keith, you seem very like myself and I think you’ve nailed each one of your points in your article. I have a blog as well, linked below.

  4. I stumbled upon your blog while doing some research on cranial helmets! As was reading your post about the visit to the helmet lady and when I read that the 1st thing out of her mouth was “oh he has tortacolis hair” I knew we had the same orthotic, Allison! She said the same thing about my son last week!!! We are getting the helmet tomorrow and I’m feeling anxious and wary of the whole process. I’m glad to see that your babies seemed to do wonderfully with it. They are beautiful 🙂 Any encouragement or wisdom would be greatly appreciated!!!

    1. Hi Katie! So sorry for my slow reply, as I just came across your comment! I’d love to hear how your son made out with the helmet, and Allison 🙂 I’m assuming since you commented 6 months ago (again, so sorry!), you’ve finished up with the helmet and your son is enjoying his new perfectly shaped noggin 🙂

  5. Hi Megg!
    I love this blog! I have a 4-year-old, and now my twins are 16-months-old. It’s been a crazy, wild ride, but I love it! I was wondering if I may use the photo of you and your husband heading home from the hospital with your twins for a newsletter I edit geared towards expectant and new twin parents? I can give you much more info if you want.
    Thanks so much, and I look forward to reading more about your journey!
    Warmly,
    Marissa
