I hope that isnt... offensive.. She is incredible- organized, frugal and always seems at least %80 col and collected....
This doesn't bother me in the least, because I like it when people acknowledge that things are a little harder with two the same age. It does drive me nuts though when people who have two near the same age act like it's the same thing as having twins. I don't doubt that having two close in age is difficult as well, it's just a different kind of difficult than multiple difficult.

yeah ok like I somehow could be unsure of THAT! We also get a lot of people how think they're 10-ish months apart
Yep, mine are completely different too. Here's how nearly every conversation goes:
Stranger: Are they both yours?
Me: Yes (smiling politely, but thinking "Here we go again!")
Stranger: Oh. (looking confused) Well...how far apart are they?
Me: 24 minutes
Stranger: (Another second of even more confusion) Oh! They're twins!?
Stranger: Really? Huh, they don't even look like brothers!
Really for the most part, I don't get comments much more annoying than the You have your hands full comment, but I don't really mind cause it's true. I usually smile and say "Sure do."
