    I wasn't prepared for how STUPID people are about twins. The questions/comments/assumptions all drive me insane. Seriously people need to go back to learn "if you don't have anything nice to say, keep it shut!". I will admit I'm miserable on very little sleep and have made some very rude comments back when I am at the end of my rope, so I am no better. But when I have 4 kids with me and am trying to grocery shop and the kids are starting to be done with it and the 20th person in 10 minutes stops to "chat up the cute little family" – I'm not nice.

    I agree with Beanjeepin, I was paying after breakfast out with my family, when a man not noticing that we are standing right behind him says, "Women are like felines nowadays!" ( meaning we spit out many kids at a time)My husband tells the kids loud enough for him to notice Help your momma out with the door please, and the guy turns around and about has a panic attack after saying something so awful. My husband said he should have said something to the man to make him apologize to me, but he figured leave well enough alone.I don't go out all that much, but now, after that stupid guy, I don't feel very comfortable. Sad how others can make you feel so bad, about something so good.

    I have not had rude comments like the ones stated before. But I get are they twins…once I said no..They are cousins!!! Then I hate are they identical? Well ones a boy and ones a girl…Go figure. Then I got how do I tell them apart…my response was I look in their diaper!!!But seriously, I would have to say that I was not prepared at how hard breastfeeding was. I have a cousin who breastfeeds and I thought oh it must be simple to put a baby to the breast…NOT. I also have learned that even though I try to set their schedules they still determine the schedule!

    First off, your baby girls are ADORABLE! Since I've just stumbled upon your blog, I hadn't realize you were a twin mom too! My babies turned 13 on Sunday and I had out the baby books and first photo albums. It was a lot of fun. Reading your list, I can't believe how much our birth stories were similar. I was on bedrest (but not strict, just couldn't work or really be on my feet for long) for 2 months before mine were born. I was also induced. 37weeks and 6 days. My girl was 5lb, 8oz and came home with me after 2 days and my boy 5lbs, 3oz spent 4 days in the NICU. When we picked him up, all the nurses came out into the hall to see K since they knew he was a twin but hadn't met his sister.I'm glad yours are doing so well. They look healthy and happy. Enjoy this time because it really does go fast!

    Hey, Pam.Nice picture of the twins on my new floor!! Growing up, Gina and I were constantly asked if we were twins. I don't remember that it bothered us much as we LOVED being twins. Perhaps it bothered my mom but she has never mentioned it. The older we get (40 is around the corner) when we are together we like to dress alike which is so much fun.I can definitely tell E&E apart now in pictures :)Karrie

    The two crawling on the floor: Lord help me, my reaction was that the baby furthest from the camera was about to bump her head on the table…
