I've gotten so many over the years.
I always get "they can't be twins - they're a boy and a girl!" or "you should have them tested because they definitely look identical."
I hate "which one is the good one?" I don't mind stupid comments but that one really irks me
My father-in-law told me they aren't twins because they are boy/girl - just siblings born at the same time. Duh.
I do get the "you have a boy/girl so you are all set" but I definitely don't want more so I don't mind that one lol!!!
Its so nice now because nobody really catches on that they are twins. Once we ditched the stroller people stopped noticing the twin thing.

I don't really get too many comments anymore. I hate it when people say "You sure do have your hands full." Wow! I never noticed that, EVER!!! Honestly, I think the best conversation I ever had about twins was the Lowe's employee that told me how he and his wife really tried hard for twins, but only had a singleton. I am not really sure how you "try" for twins and I did not really want to ask that guy for details.
I get the "hands full" comments all the time. I don't even know what to say, most say it in a nice way, so I just smile. I have the older two with me most of the time, so they are right. lol
And then the, "How far apart are they?" "About a minute." "Oh! They're twins?" "Yup". I mean, I know that one is an inch bigger and 3-5 lbs heavier, but do they really look that far apart in age?
and then the insistence of them being identical or not identical.
and a few times we've had lots of stares from a few ppl, a few have been brave enough to ask, but I think more than a few think we have two sets of twins, since my older two are only a few inches and few lbs apart as well.
and of course, lots of, "Oh, I always wanted twins!"

I nursed my twins for 2years and 2 weeks! A little sad to be all done now.
The one that bugs me the most is when a complete stranger argues with me that ther are absolutely not fraternal- they HAVE to be identical! Ummmm first- they're my kids, so I know what they are and arent. One has bright orange hair and blue eyes and looks exactly like his mama. The other is a brunette with dark eyes and looks NOTHING like his brother. I seriously dont think they even look like brothers!
oooooh or the strangers that loudly, publicly ask if they came out of my vagina.
As for the vagina comments, REALLY?? I have never had those comments. Thank goodness for that! Now watch, someone is going to ask me that soon!
