That’s right. You heard me. Twin moms are freaks of nature, or apparently so says Google. I admit, I do feel like we are freaks (in a good way) sometimes, but…
You see, I was looking for more blogs to add to my feed so I was googling twin mom blogs. As soon as I entered “twin moms” the first result to appear was the above!
Turns out it is in reference to a humourous YouTube video about the things people say to moms of multiples. Crisis averted. LOL
Every day we go for an hour walk (at least) and mostly my response from the public is nice. Sometimes I am surprised by the lack of response, but then again, I am an attention whore :-p
Facebook is another matter though. People are always giving me advice when I didn’t ask for any.
The girls had their four month doctors appointment and I was shocked to discover there is now a 5.5lb difference between them! June is 25.5 inches long and 20lbs and Sansa is 24.5 inches long and 14.5lbs. Sansa is the one who gets the most formula (which has more calories than breastmilk) but she is still smaller. The doctor reminded me that she is well within normal range and that they are two separate people and not to compare them.
When I posted on Facebook about it, I started getting feeding advice from people (and not moms of twins). I am sure they mean well, but I didn’t ask for advice.
Okay, I am being slightly defensive, but I usually like to be the one telling people what to do LOL. I mean if anything they are above and beyond for twins. June is in the 97 percentile for babies her age, nevermind twins, and all on my vegetarian breastmilk. 🙂
I guess my lesson is to quit posting on facebook and stick to my blog. Dually noted.
In the meantime I’ll keep being my freaky self with my wonderfully freaky family 🙂
