Oh! And Also…June 9, 2013
Here’s a link to a hilarious video my friend Shay sent me on facebook. It’s called What Not to Say to the Parents of Twins
It’s super funny because I’d gotten all of those questions/comments before except one (the one where she thinks having one baby at a time is harder than having twins)….UNTIL LAST FRIDAY!!! I was waiting at the Dr’s office for my postpartum visit and these two ladies were commenting on the twins.
Woman #1: You’re a better woman than I am! I could have never done two at a time!
Woman #2: Actually, I’ve babysat my friend’s twins and it’s really easy because they just play together. I think having twins must be easier than having just one because they can entertain each other.
Wow Woman #2…just…Wow. I can see where she’s coming from, but she had to be smoking something to think that her babysitting experience qualified her to that opinion. Yikes.
This is unrelated to the video, but sort of related to the experience. People love to call me “Super mom” because I have twins. I get it all the time, at least several times a week. It’s really really nice, but funny that something I had no control over whatsoever suddenly makes me “Super mom.” “Survivor mom” seems more appropriate!
