Top Ten Things NEVER To Say To A Twin Mom

Things that make you (as a twin mom) realize that they just don't get it after all:

1. Would you like to sit down?
2. Do you guys ski?
3. When was the last time you guys took a trip to London?
4. You really need to find time for yourself.
5. You can't imagine how much laundry I have to do.
6. Can you even imagine how easy it would be with only one child?
7. I'm exhausted.
8. The baby was up TWICE last night.
9. You're lucky your two have eachother to play with. I have to occupy mine myself.
10. My two kids are only 15 months apart, so I know EXACTLY how you feel.


  1. You did Darren's homework, xxx so proud of you. Loved this and the anger one too.


  2. Thanks Karenne. WAS saving the TOP TEN for an evening I was just too exhausted to post anything else - but then took advantage of already having it done to use it as homework for April's Problogger mini-course. Tomorrow's post is a little more intense. Just to keep me on my toes!

  3. My top 2

    1.) Are they natural?

    2.) Better you than me.

    Honestly, how are you supposed to respond to that?

  4. You'll LOVE the next essay on my "dark child".

    You are absolutely right - what ARE people thinking?

    Elizabeth Lyons, in her book Ready or Not: Here They Come, also has some goodies - but she never had a good answer at the ready either.

    Maybe that will be another blog for us to work on - good answers to bad questions!

  5. We were considering a third pregnancy but - after seeing you guys - I think the answer is no.

    To be fair - she DID say it really really nicely!
