It’s 2 a.m., and Anna Billingsley and her husband have a plan.
Two lists have been made: one for Anna and one for Charles. They each grab a baby, strap her in and make a mad dash for the door.
As soon as the Billingsley family enters the grocery store, they exchange a kiss and take off in opposite directions, each with a twin as they quickly check items off their grocery lists, a comical race to the checkout lane before anyone can deter their outing.
“We have to do it that way,” Anna explained. “Otherwise we can’t get through the store without 20 people stopping us.”
Julia Henry and Becky Kessler, also both mothers of twins, laughed as Anna described the struggle, having been in the same situation themselves plenty of times.
