Watching twin dad Brian Rosenworcel struggle but eventually succeed at getting his babies securely in a moby wrap takes me back to those hazy early months of no sleep, learning how to juggle, and inadvertent bed head. Twins! They are wonderful and magical and amazing -- and they also make you do some strange things. Funny things. Things like Rosenworcel does with his twins Nico and Marshal.
Sure this video is disguised as a tutorial on how to put twins in a moby wrap -- not an easy feat as you will see from the several failed attempts. But it's also what this dad does after his little bundles are all tucked in safe.

After doing a little googling, I discovered this dad was in the band Guster ... who I believe played a festival thrown at my college hosted by the radio station I worked at. I was involved in the planning. But I have twins, too, and therefore that means my memory is bad.
Nothing like parenthood (times two) to make us do some weirdly wonderful things. We can never lose our humor. Or our quirkiness.
