Lets see, they look the same, same size, usually dressed the same (get less questions) and are in a double stoller.

Nope. Not twins We had this one cloned. Or maybe it was this one....
Now see, I have girls a year apart and I spent most of their toddlerhood saying, "no, they are not twins". I was asked constantly. I even once had a flight attendant make a PSA for everyone to clear the aisle b/c "we have a mom flying alone with twins". I felt obligated to tell everyone as I shlepped them down the aisle on either hip, "no, they aren't twins, they're a year apart..."

When you just start saying yes (instead of trying to explain that its impossible) when people ask if your girl/boy twins are identical.

-The dumbest conversation I've ever had......Are they twins? YES A girl and a boy huh? YES Wow, he is a lot bigger than her isn't he? YES Can you tell them apart??????

I couldn't even answer.....I was so shocked that someone could be that dumb.

When my twins were newborns and riding in a double stroller, I got asked at the mall if they were twins. I looked at her and said "Nope. It was buy one get one free day at the hospital." and kept on going!
