Taking our boys out in public always brings a lot of stares, pointing and questions.
We took our boys with us to Costco and WalMart yesterday and I was amazed at how many people stopped and just stared. Some will then strike up a conversation, while others will pretend they weren’t staring when we catch their eye.
But for those who do strike up a conversation… it’s almost a guarantee that we’ll hear one of these questions/statements before its all said and done…
10. Do the sleep at the same time?
9. God bless their mom, she must be a saint.
8. Their mom must have her hands full.
7. How do you do it?
6. Are they boys, girls or boy-girl?
5. Are they identical?
4. They’re so big!
3. They’re so cute!
2. How old are they?
1. Are they twins?!
And a new one from yesterday – “Do they go at the same time?”
Our response was, “Sometimes.” My first instinct was to say, “Do they go at the same time? Well, it depends on where we’re going. Sometimes we take them together, sometimes we take one by themselves, sometimes we leave them both at home.”
But what I really wanted to say, “Why yes, they talk these things out at night. They have a rotating schedule as to when they’re gonna go.”
