"Built-in Playmate" -- another twin myth? - Page 2

post #21 of 22
It's definitely been a perk of having twins for us. My girls play together all the time. There are frequent fights, they mostly happen when one of my girls gets frustrated with the other and pinches her sister, but they can go hours without that happening.

Like Lexbeach's boys, mine are pretty different and I don't know if they'd be friends if they met at school, etc, but they are best friends.

I kind of dread having my singleton home without his sisters when the girls go to school next year. I'm not all that keen on being the source of entertainment.

[QUOTE=wondertwins;15292389]I'm usually the one who suggests that my twins have a built in best friend when approached by strangers about how difficult it must be to have twins. I do agree with them that in some ways it is more challenging to have two at once, but on the other hand, they always have a buddy. Our twins are our first children, and we have a few friends with children just a few months older or younger. All of these children are singletons, though some have siblings, and I remember the other moms talking about how hard it was to get things done or to even go pee, because the LO's did not want to be put down or left in a room alone. I always thought I had it easy because my twins were never alone, they always had one another to keep them company.[QUOTE]


This is identical to my experience. I find parenting twins easier than singletons. I am rooting for a second twin pregnancy for this reason(and others).
