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! Lol

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. Smile But I get that ALL the time, so annoying!

ROFL

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. Biggrin

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. ROFL

Hey now! Smile Gotta speak up for the triplet mommas here! lol there are many times I think twins would be so much easier because you have two arms, two boobs, a husband (most times at least)...you aren't outnumbered. Trips...so outnumbered in everything!

Hahahaa ... I'm MESSING! Biggrin

You deserve a hundred times the awards and medals that I'm assuming are presented to twin moms upon the babies' births.

I'm sure they can't divulge the details but we can't be wrong.

HaHaHa. I always said I was going to have a natural birth b/c the epidural scared me (back when I assumed getting pg would be easy and I'd have them one at a time). My SIL kept telling me there are no awards for natural childbirth...darn it. Something tells me I'll be waiting quite a while for this award too. Actually, I don't deserve it any more than you mommas that is for sure! You would all do the same as me if you had three as well. Smile

Mel, I had to read the part to dh about waiting for food to dry to clean it up. Our floors can be so nasty, noodles of any variety do not clean well when wet. Smile It drives him nuts.

I tried reading that blog, but yeah, so crass.

Yeah, it would have been funnier without all the rough language. We just had one of those food moments yesterday. We had ham, beans, and corn bread for lunch. Let's just say that I finally swept it up this morning. None of that was coming off the floor without drying out first. Yuck! :shock:
