Here here!!! You are not alone! I saw my husband attempt to sweep up pasta the other night, and I had to enlighten him! The things we learn. Cous Cous is the worst.....

No!No! Sushi rice is WAY worse than couscous. It sticks to vertical surfaces as well as horizontal ones. You definitely have to let it dry overnight to remove it.

... Or you could read these thread and think "Those moochy dogs will have a field day when the babies start eating". I'm beginning to be greatful for our indoor dogs.

That doesn't go away after you have them. And DO NOT try to bounce on a trampoline! :

We have a huge trampoline on the property that we share w/the landlords. I have steered clear of it. Also, don't let your DH jump on a trampoline while you are pregnant with twins; you'll end up in the ER so that he can get x-rays of his neck vertebrae, but everyone will be staring ominously at you and your huge belly when you walk into the hospital

Thank goodness for indoor dogs over here too! Toot comes around and cleans up the baby barf for us. All three of them will lick clean the babies hands after eating solids. They are such good helpers. :

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

And then you think rationally to yourself, "At least I don't have triplets or quadruplets or quintuplets or sextuplets or..."

There was a set of triplets in the NICU at the same time as our girls. They shared the step-up room towards the end, and their parents had two older kids too, like us. I cannot tell you how many times I think of their mom when I'm feeling overwhelmed, and sternly tell myself to man up and stop whining . . .

Yes, I have a friend with triplets and a 2-year-old and I think of her often when I'm feeling overwhelmed

My contribution:
...when you realize at 8 PM that the pants and shirt you were wearing all day don't match at all. And then you think about it for a second and realize you don't care.

Oh my goodness, you've got me going. Here's my new one: You know you're a twin mom . . . when someone tells you "my, what lovely children" and you want to kiss them - NOT for the compliment but because they did NOT say "my, you have your hands full."



(Not that I don't like compliments. Just saying.)

If I had $1 for every time I hear about my hands being full, I'd be pretty well off. Sounds like a nice way to make a living.

It bugs me, but I guess people just don't know what to say. And at least that isn't mean, like some weird comments I get.

... when the baby you were just holding and nursing for that last hour you've been calling by the wrong name!!!

(14mo old and now that their hair is growing out and hiding shape of the face it's confusing at times!)
post #36 of 47
This is a kind of sad one, but:

It's like watching a game of tennis in the SCBU whilst they are sleeping

- look at one, look at the other, look at one, look at the other......

You open the front door with your foot!

Your dog has gained 10 lbs because he is now primarily used as a food vacuum after the kids eat.

you hear the tin foil and you know you're too late.

Two together can unroll a whole roll across the entire house in a flash! Today it was the tin foil, yesterday the whole. entire. cabinet with every. single. ziplock, baggy, lunch sack. Sigh. But so dang funny at the same time!

You breathe a deep sigh of relief when you realize that it's JUST ONE baby waking up early from a nap. Lucky you!
