Guest Posts And Some Good News

I know I'm posting a little more often than usual this week. This is just a quick note to tell you a few bits of news!

Allow me a moment of feeling proud...

I'm honored to share the news that Red Tricycle has named The Twin Coach as one of the Best Los Angeles Blogs. Here's what they had to say: 
"This a woman you want by your side. Having experienced divorce, infertility, career change, anxiety and more, Gina Osher is a woman who can relate. Her optimism, knowledge and hard-won joy bring inspiration with every article."
If you live on the Western coast of the US do check out Red Tricycle as they always have great postings for everything family related. And this particular post of the best Los Angeles blogs has some other great blogs that you might like...no matter where you live!

Also, I'm Guest Posting This Week! 

I've written this week for two blogs that are definitely worth checking out. The first is on an extremely popular online magazine called elephant journal which, if you are not familiar with it yet describes itself as "your guide to what we like to call ‘the mindful life’: yoga, organics, sustainability, genuine spirituality, conscious consumerism, fair fashion, the contemplative arts…anything that helps us to live a good life that also happens to be good for others, and our planet." 

I'm thrilled to be working with them and would love if you have time to check out my current post which is, more or less, about what I realized about the difference between being a mindful parent and simply losing my mind as a parent: "Crying In The Hallway: Mindfulness Vs. Losing My Mind"
"In my experience, having more patience is at the heart of enjoying life as a parent. In many ways, practicing mindfulness is also an exercise in developing patience. Slowing down to be mindful from moment to moment can seem difficult for an intense and goal-oriented person like myself, but I have found it very worthwhile to start moving in this direction."
My second guest post is on Amy McCready's blog, Positive Parenting Solutions. I reviewed Amy's excellent book, "If I Have To Tell You One More Time", last year and recently she asked me to write about our decision to give our twins' separate birthday parties: "A Birthday Party For Twins: Shared Or Separate?" 
"Of all of the things we do to nurture their individuality and encourage their sense of self, what has most recently seemed to make the greatest impact on them was having separate birthday parties for their 5th birthday."
Thanks to all of you who have shared my blog posts on Facebook, Twitter, your parenting groups and elsewhere. It is because of you that I get wonderful opportunities like this to share my thoughts and experiences with a wider and wider audience. 

Thanks for reading!
