Oh, I love the first one. So true! I have done the singleton thing and now the twin thing. I have some experience there, even if my kids are spaced apart by almost 6 years. I hate it when people tell me that having their kids 16 months apart was the same as twins. Ummm.....I hate to break it to you, but it is NOT the same. Two individuals at the same place developmentally will never be the same as an infant and a toddler, or a toddler and a preschooler, or a preschooler and a school-age kid...need I go on!
Yes, love that first one! So so true. My sister had her first two 14mo apart, and even though they are teenagers now, she has told me that twins are NOT the same as 14mo apart. She said, even at this age, that she goes home from my house exhausted after helping with the twins. But I get that ALL the time, so annoying!

I nursed my twins for 2years and 2 weeks! A little sad to be all done now.
Oh, I read that second blog. It was pretty funny when you bypass all the crass language. His post about not walking around in bare feet was hilarious. So true. We often have to let cottage cheese, rice, and fruit dry some before attempting to clean it up. A good stick vacuum is your best friend with twins, I swear! The food still needs to be dry though or the vac won't suck it up. Ah, the joys.
Rachel- So true, right? My twins just suck the energy out of my body. Sometimes, the thought of taking them up to give them a bath at the end of the day makes me want to pull a blanket over my head.
