OMG I am LMAO ! that is the BEST reply EVER!!

My twins are 5 now! WOW! It has been quite a ride! There has been some ebbs and flows as to whether it egts easier or not..times can still get really hairy but all in all, it is much easier. This is such a fun age! LOVE it!

My dd's just weaned last summer. They were 4.5 then. If there are any moms of Multiples out there who want to try CLW with thier twins GO FOR IT! It can be done!!!

We still get comments ALL the time. My girls are identical and it is thier chioce to dress the same still so really, it is hard to not notice them.

ONE day I am sure they will want to dress differently I am sure.

Blessings mamma's!

I wonder if this is a "had twins first" vs. "had twins later" issue. I never had that guilt. I guess I figure what that "lose" from me they gain 100x over from each other. It also seems like all my friends who have a single first and then another single have this issue like #2 didn't get all the 1 - 1 time #1 got, and #1 isn't getting as much time as he / she had before little brother or sister came along. I know my neighbor is still struggling with the guilt (both that her older dd is getting ripped off, and that she bends over so backwards to help older dd not be jealous that younger son isn't getting 1/2 the attention dd got at that age).

Just a thought

This thread is great!! I totally love the penis comment...I am LMAO over here!! I can totally relate to that. My b/g twins are 16 months old now, and I get that question all the time. "Are they identical?" I even had a nurse ask me that once. Um, okay. I will have to use that response next great. I also get so tired of the "oh you have your hands full" comment. I'm a single Momma, and every time I take my 4 kiddos out, people stare and sometimes point ( freakin' rude), and they say that to me all the time. Like a pp kids are not a freak show. They are people. Yes it's hard work, but I don't look at it as having my hands full. My kids make my life so much fun and if anything is full, it is my heart!
Hugs, Mommas.

I've really enjoy reading this thread as I can relate to a lot of what has been said. I also have b/g twins and the comments about being identical were quite humourous at times. They are now 21 months, how time has flown, and I don't nearly get a many comments except people do stare as they are trying to figure out if the kids are twins or if I just had them really close in age. My ds is quite tall for his age (he's 4 inches taller than dd) so people think they are about a year apart.
