Many new parents struggle with leaving the house. Raise your hand if you've been there. I practiced putting my six-week old twins in their car seats multiple times and had my husband check before I started leaving the house on my own with them. First, it was pushing the stroller to the grocery store and back. Then, I pushed myself to take drives while they napped; thank God for drive-thru coffee, am I right? Finally, I made the leap of faith: I drove to Target by myself with the twins and actually purchased things from the store.
