    This is spot on – I get at least 2 of these questions every time we leave the house!

    Great post! At least once a day people tell me “I have my hands full”! And almost every time I am still shocked people are commenting to me that I can’t think of something witty other than, “nope, I am really lucky they are very good girls”! My favorite is when people are watching me open doors instead of helping hold the door! 😉

    Hilarious post! I get asked if my CLEARLY boy/girl twins are identical all the time…however, my favorite was after I explained that one was a girl and the other a boy, this guy went on to ask, “How do you tell them apart?” Um, if I have to explain that to you…

    I don’t have twins, my girls are 1.5 years apart and I also get the “you must have your hands full!” All the time. It doesn’t bother me, I usually see it as an acknowledgement that being a mom to two young girls is often hard. It’s not without reward, and usually I can tell by the way they ask that they see that side of it too.

    As for the “do twins run in your family” I have been guilty of asking that question, though I never have asked it because I wanted to know about fertility treatments, I see how that probably does happen. Mostly I am just curious about if having twins was a total shock or if they had a suspicion due to family history.
