This is almost off topic, EXCEPT, apparently it is even more heinous of me to be potentially bearing TWO ginger babies at the same time than just a potential ginger singleton.
Anyone who is giggling better stop right now
I'm gobsmacked people have the audacity to state things such as 'let's hope it's not ginger twins'. Grrrr. I know in some cultures it's considered acceptable to hope for fair skinned babies as more desirable, , but I'm getting people of all colours and backgrounds, even my husband's family, ( he's the one who provides evidence of the ginger gene), chuckling that I might be having ginger twins.
Eugh. The attitude is driving me crazy now
Btw, sorry if anyone is offended by the use 'ginger' as opposed to 'red' hair.
Of my four children so far, they've ended up brown, brown, blonde, blonde - and all but one had a fairly gingerish stage that made me very on guard after the first giggles at their colouring and 'oh, but it's okay she's a girl' to the girls
I'm going to be one mean mummy if I have to be, but am already upset at the implications for my husband, ( cross as I am with him most of the rest of the time, ) it's so RUDE and really hurtful.
Any mamas of ginger twins here for solidarity and suggestions on how best to deal with people's bad manners !?!
Do they not KNOW how much money women spend trying to fake that look? (I trashed my hair for a good 3-4 years dying and overdying to achieve the right shade of strawberry blonde.)
Do they not KNOW how very, very cute TWO redheaded toddlers are? Do they not KNOW how much EASIER it is to find two redheads in a large crowd of children? You are much less likely to take home the wrong children, than if you had, say, tow-headed children.
Do they think that all redheads are trouble (like, they are all just like the Scavo twins on Desperate Housewives?) Well, in that case, I hope you don't have blonde children - look at what a PITA that Dennis the Menace was.
