I had to share this because I literally didn't know what to say to this woman! I was at the grocery store with DH and each of us had a baby asleep on our backs in the their mei tais. Our elder DD was in the cart. This woman looks over and says, "Oh twins. How sweet. It was like I had twins... no it was like I had triplets! I had a 2 year old, an almost 1 year old, and a newborn. They were so close together the two weren't even a year apart!" Uh.... what? My daughter was a year when I had the twins and I would never say it was anything like having triplets. In those early months/years every single month makes a huge milestone difference and it just is not the same as having them the actual same age.
I just stared at her thinking, "Unless you have multiples DO NOT EVER SAY IT WAS LIKE YOU HAD MULTIPLES!!!!!!" Wow, rant over and I feel better. What do you say to people?? Or do you just smile and nod like I did?
