... you think it's no big deal to schlep 45 lbs. of baby around all day.

...You rarely have to unstrap just ONE side of your nursing bra. (if he sees his brother nursing, then he has to, too!)

...you think to yourself sometimes, "what do people with just one baby DO all day?" (not in a mean way, I just think what it must be like sometimes)

...You enjoy the back carry because it means that people usually don't notice you have two until you're already past them. And then you can keep walking and pretend you didn't hear their cutesy comments.

You let your kids trade shoes and socks, so they are both mismatched equally!

you realize, while trying to yell at kids running toward the street (in different directions), that buying your identical twins the SAME coat was a VERY BAD IDEA!!!!

You should have bought stock in sharpie, both for marking your children as newborns, and later for marking their toys, shoes, clothes, papers, etc.

Okay, I totally didn't know what you were talking about when you first posted this, but within the last week, our girls have started scooting all over the dining room floor, Hoovering up dropped Cheerios . . . ha!

You decide to just close the shades and not even BOTHER wearing a shirt, because you'll likely be nursing without stopping all day.

Your stretch marks have stretch marks.

A lot of your most cherished parenting "ideals" have flown out the window.

And to secretly calling mamas of singletons "wuss." I know it's unkind and unhelpful, but I am guilty. After having had high-need newborn twins and a toddler still in diapers and a chronic illness, I am convinced I can do ANYTHING. Climbing Everest can't possibly be as challenging as mothering my babies was... The idea of mamas with triplets or more leaves me wanting to .

you are so happy that shoes come in pairs... one for each to play with, no tug of war.

you realize that you suddenly need two of everything, dolls, tricycles, etc.

Welcome to the club! We don't need dogs, do we?!!

We call the babies "roombas" - those little robot vacuums that go around by themselves! One is enjoying some crackers from the dining room floor now, as I type! Snacktime is taken care of! See....I knew I'd get a break today!

You've gotten so entrenched in just having two babies when people gawk at you it takes a few moments to figure out why (or it could just be the other 4 kids hanging all over me that's making them stare).

You can tell which baby and what's wrong in 3 notes or less.
