CHAOS TO CALM:  The Moms-of-Multiples' guide to An Organized Family
By Tonia Tomlin

The author is the mother of twin girls, Peyton and Sydney.  The book is based on research as well as her "real world life experience" raising multiple children.  

There are tips, ideas, strategies, techniques and plain old fashioned advice for expectant and new parents .  The book is not only useful for the parents of multiples but would be useful to anyone with a young child.

There are 11 separate chapters discussing everything from preparing for the multiple birth to baby safe space to birthday parties.  It is a treasure trove of information.  Have a look at the valuable organizing information chapter with forms  to use for interviewing caregivers,  a daycare shopping guide, pool policy, and a budget.  Additionally, there is a CD included in  the back of the book that contains the forms for you to use.  

Tonia is a professional organizer and founder of her own business called Sorted Out, an organizing service providing a wide range of consulting and organizing services.  Tonia brings her expertise to the book.

Looking for the perfect shower or holiday gift for someone expecting a multiple birth?  Look no further.  Anyone who receives a copy of this helpful, valuable book will thank you over and over.  I think it's just great.  What do you think?
