Positive comments!

I thoroughly enjoyed the previous comments posts, but I thought I would start a post about positive comments that we get! I actually can't think of a lot, but I like the "I don't know how you do it!" comments. Just tonight at church a woman told me they are the most beautiful twins she has ever seen. Haha! I'm not sure whether this was positive or negative, but my friend always says they look healthy "for twins". Um, do twins normally look thin and sickly? Thats all I can think of. You got anything?

  • My creepy friend told me I am soooo lucky to spontaneously have twins.

    Waiting for my buddy, s0ulchicken, to finish cooking her own twins!
  • A coworker was excited to see me and said "you are growing!" I replied "I'm huge!" She said " you are pregnant in the most beautiful way." 

    I thought that was so sweet.  

  • I never get tired of hearing that my boys are adorable!

     Someone today told me that I really seemed to have it together.  That was a huge compliment!

  • I swell with pride when anyone complements their birthweight. I know 3.1, 3.3, and 3.7 doesn't sound like a lot but I am a thin 125lb, 5'3" person pre pregnancy and had lots of issues with diet, nutrition, and gestational diabetes when pregnant. I went th

  • I have had several "you are so blessed" and "you are so special to have twins" comments.  I actually don't like the special comment, because to me that implies it's less special to have singletons, and frankly I don't think it is, but it's still nice

  • I was out for a walk with my twins and a mom with a toddler playing in her yard said "you go girl" - I thought that was perfect b/c it complimented me without requiring a response, which I always find exhausting even for the nice comments!

  • I baked brownies and cupcakes for Easter while taking care of my 6 week old boys alone since my SO was working 5pm to 8am. I got a lot of positive comments about "I don't know how you do it." And I like that one. Especially since I don't know how I manage
  • I love this idea!  It's so easy to focus on the negative comments.

    At the grocery store pushing the dsng and pulling the cart before Easter by myself I had two moms with toddlers tell me I was their hero and they don't know how I do it alone
