Might be a parent of twins IF

You might be a parent of twins if:

* You have used baby wipes as a substitute for a shower for yourself.

* The question “Are you gettin’ any?” always refers to the “S” word – SLEEP!

* You feel deja vu every other time you do a task.

* You’ve lowered your expectation for a tidy home…again and again.

* You buy in pairs.

* You think in pairs.

* You speak in pairs.

* You still manage to answer with a smile for the 150th time, “Yes, they are twins. They are fraternal/identical. Yes, it runs in my family. No, I haven’t mixed them up. None of your darn business!” (The questions are almost always the same.)

* You spend more money on diapers than electricity and water.

* You choose the places that you shop based on stroller maneuverability.

* You’ve thrown out every rule of parenting that you were adamant on before the   twins were born.

* You time your feedings…twice.

* You are obsessed with being “fair”.

* You feel that your greatest accomplishment in life is making it through another day with everyone fed and still breathing.

* Your laundry is only ever completely done when your mother or mother-in-law come to visit.

* Date night has become the two of you collapsed in the hallway, praying to God that both babies will sleep for the same consecutive three hours.

* You feel refreshed after a night of 5 hours of sleep.

* You can’t remember when the last time you slept through an entire night.

* Your theme song is Bon Jovi’s, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”.

* You know what “twin escalation syndrome” is.

* You can’t remember the last year of your life, but somehow you are celebrating two First Birthdays.

* Your brother-in-law says, “The twins are lookin’ good!” and you are not insulted.

* You feel an immediate bond with a stranger, just because they also parent twins. And they KNOW.

* You have no idea why God has given you multiple blessings, or how you will make it one more day. But He has and you will.

    “Your laundry is only ever completely done when your mother or mother-in-law come to visit.” – K I can relate to that and I don’t have twins ha ha.

    “Your brother-in-law says, “The twins are lookin’ good!” and you are not insulted.”
