Ugg- the comments!

So my best friend from childhood keeps making these annoying comments about how her singleton baby is like taking care of two babies because she is fussy/difficult. Yes, her baby was a premie (mine were born at almost 38 weeks), but I have TWO and it really bothers me that she keeps making these comments. I have told her numerous times that no matter how fussy one baby is, when I am done changing one diaper, I am only 50% done (same with BFing and everything else for that matter). She continues to make these comments- just needed to vent! 

Also, yesterday I was walking around NYC for a few hours and got the following comments (and made a game out of it)

double trouble- 6 people said this

better you than me- 2 people said this 

do twins run in your family - 3 people said this 

one for each ear- 1 person

  • I had to laugh about the NYC.  I have been taking the train into NYC about once a week lately and the conversations I have in the city are the best.  Last week 13 different people came up to me to tell me they either have twins or are a twin.
