You know you're a twin mama when....

when your babies swipe their food off the table, so you put them on the floor to finish! : :

When there is no time at the Boobie Buffet for DH!

...grocery shopping takes twice as long because everybody wants to stop and chat with you about your twins. OR you put on your super stealth I'm-not-making-eye-contact-with-anyone face and get outta there in record time!

You don't worry about one boob leaking while you're nursing b/c both are being used!

You can hoist two toddlers into your arms from the floor.

You can find your keys and unlock your front door while you are holding two toddlers.

You can buckle a carseat, hand over a snack, and wipe a dirty face at the same time.

You are floating on air because the twin bond is an amazing, special experience.

. . . you are surprisingly up-to-date on MDC: Nursing two = not much else getting done!

Or: you decide that tossed-about pasta and rice are a LOT easier to sweep off the kitchen floor if you just let them "air dry" overnight!

...you pray that you can get the baby you're nursing to sleep before the one next to you starts screaming and wakes the first one up.

Or you have babies that are so used to hearing somebody else cry that they DON'T wake up anymore.

You wake to your 2 year olds wrestling one another for first shot at the boob....

laughup Yeah, our family has spent the last 2 years taking at least twice as long to walk through a mall and worse yet the dreaded grocery store.......seems ppl know how much I hate grocery shopping so they choose those times to argue with me that my girls must be identical when they are in fact fraternal twins, and I just love the continual flow of advice from parents of singletons on how to handle twins because their sister's cousin's brother's niece had a set of her own 25 years ago! ACK! I'm super bias, I think my twin girls are THE cutest twins but plse comment and/or admire if you must from a distance and let me do my groceries! We mama's of twins have to squeeze 37 hours into a 24 hour day, not much time for socializing in the produce section.

...you eventually find two matching shoes, but it turns out they're both the left one!
post #13 of 47
...everyone around you is amazed at what you can heft in one and two arms (and your arms have never looked so good!)
post #14 of 47
You flash everyone nursing 2 at a time and just don't even care anymore.
post #15 of 47
it takes about 5 hours to watch a movie with dh on date night!

1) You hear moms of singletons complain about how hard it is to get stuff done with a baby and think (but don't say), "wuss."

2) You hear moms of singletons complain about how hard it is to get stuff done with a baby and feel overwhelming empathy because you now know just how hard mothering can actually be.

3) You have both of the above reactions at the SAME TIME.

I know exactly what both of you mean!

Thanks so much for starting this thread! I'm an expectant mama of twins, so...you know you're pregnant with twins when...

...you have to actively concentrate on your kegel muscles while sneezing so you don't pee your pants! ...or maybe that's just me...
