Monday, February 14, 2011


Here's a few comments that I have enjoyed over the past couple of years.  It seems like no matter where I am or what I am doing someone always has something to say about twins.  Here are a few:

  • Are they twins?  I really want to respond with, "No, I have managed to have two children that are the same age and look alike." or "They are three months apart."  I will let you know what kind of responses I get as soon as I work up the courage.
  • Are their personalities the same?
  • Which one is your favorite?
  • I get a lot of "God bless you's"
  • Do they get along or fight a lot?
  • Can you tell them apart?
  • "It gets easier, I promise."
  • "My twins are 25."
  • Are they identical?
  • "What's it like having twins?"  Um, kind of like having two babies!
  • Wow, you have your hands full!
  • Fertility or spontaneous?  I'm sorry stranger at Costco, but the functionality of my reproductive organs is none of none of your business!
  • The other day I got a "twins-I'm sorry"  I am still working on a witty response just in case I get that one again.  The last thing I am about is sorry that I have twins.
Please leave a comment if you have any fun experiences with those people that just can't help themselves!


  1. Cute pic of the boys. My favorite(and I got this alot) is are they idenical? I have girl and boy twins!

  2. I am absolutely loving your blog! I have twin daughters who are 2 1/2 and everything you write of rings so true!

    Thanks for the comic relief, as well as making me feel normal in this "not-so-normal" club we are a part of!
