    Some people are clueless. I am still baffled when people ask me if mine are identical when C has an olive complexion and D has a white complexion. Besides the fact they have totally different head shapes. However they do have the same eye color.

  • I feel sooooo sorry for all the fraternal twin mamas! In a way, I think ID twin parents have it slightly better in the comments department!

  • A woman today educated me about twins. Two placentas = fraternal and one placenta = identical. She asked how many placentas I had and informed me that my girls are fraternal. (They are didi identicals). I just nodded and backed away!

  • I had a guy say to me a few days ago... "Wow, boy/girl twins. That is really rare! Usually it is boy boy or girl girl."
    Uhhhh...


    I've gotten this one more than once...

    Apparently my identical twins are maternal. There's maternal and fraternal. At least that's what this older gentlemen at Olive Garden insisted today. @-)
    LMFAO there is no such thing as maternal twins... there are "sororal" twins, which are just girl/girl dizygotic twins.... but most people still just call them fraternal in that situation. 

    (I think that person has fraternal confused with paternal.....)

  • Yesterday at the salon when I said our twins were fraternal the hairdresser gave that lesson to everyone else present. (Usually when people ask I say "probably fraternal," but sometimes I get tired of explaining the whole di/di, fraternal vs identical thing and just say "fraternal.")

  • These are hilarious!
  • I have boy/girl twins and more than one person has said, "but they don't look alike!" or "are they identical?" Ummm...no. Someone yesterday asked me "Are they twins?" I said yes and she said "but he's bigger than her". I guess they can't be twins if one is bigger than the other lol.

    OMG!!!! I totally got that same comment from a woman at a mall.  I've also recently gotten paternal.  It's really sad how misinformed people are.

  • "Oh, a boy and a girl! How do you tell them apart?" Um...it's two girls and they are fraternal! 

    I also get, "Which one is the aggressive one?"  People have sick minds about what twins are/should be.

  • Still pregnant here, but for some reason it bothers me when people say 'You look good for having twins!'.... so if it wasn't twins I'd be a lard? I know they mean it as a compliment, I just can't accept it. haha
    I got this all.the.time. Usually the convo started w asking me when I was due. They'd get all bug eyed and asked me if I knew what I was having. When I would say "two boys", this look of relief would come over them after the initial confusion and they'd say, "well you look fantastic!" Right. Bc if there was only one in there, I'm clearly a fat ass. Thanks.
    I got the same thing, my answer was "just two" and the reaction was usually priceless. No one understood how we could wait to find out either. 
    My favorite comment since the girls were born has to be from the wack job at Wal-Mart yesterday:
    Oh twins! Are they girls? 
    Yes (head to toe pink)
    Oh so they are identical! 
    No, fraternal
    Are you sure? (Looking at me like I am an idiot)
    Yes
    Well now your done! But you should have had a boy first.
    I did, he's in the basket in front of us.
    Oh, so then you really are done having kids!
    (I have no idea who this woman was or why she thought I needed to be done, seriously?)

    Slightly off topic, between the obnoxious comments at the store this weekend, we happened to run into another set of twins - 10mo old fraternal girls. My loudmouth, Jamie, was standing in the basket of the cart and making noises at the bigger girl, who was doing the same from her cart. The girl looked him dead in the face and let out a playful scream. Poor James... his lip came tumbling out and the tears started rolling and he just cried his little head off. Why o why would she scream at me? hims says.

    I posted about this in a separate thread last week, but I think it's worth repeating here.

    Some random lady at Target: "I had twins the hard way. A year and two days apart."
    Cause, ya know, we did it the "easy" way.

    I've gotten this too. "I had my kids the hard way - one at a time". Thanks, lady.

    Hmm... I wonder what a mom of twins is supposed to look like.
    I know right? It's hard to not be offended for somebody with a comment like that....

    I get this a lot! "Oh, you have twins? You look great!"
    Huh? I forgot, I'm supposed to look beat down and depressed...I mean, thanks, but with that I feel like you aren't really expecting too much of me.
  • "You didn't waste time having another one.  What are they, a few months apart?" 
    Said from a cashier at Walmart when my duo was around 9 months old.

    "You brought your son's friend with you!  How nice."
    Since my twins look nothing alike.

    "What do you mean THEY are the twins and not THESE two? 
    Said after people insisted my youngest is the twin to my smaller twin.

    "They are twins. They should be around the same size."
    Said their pediatrician recently after realizing there is a 2.5-3 inch and 19 pound height difference between the two boys.

  • Random gentleman at a restaurant: Did you have twins on purpose?

    Me: I don't understand what you're asking.

    RGAR: You know, did you have fertility "help"?

    Me: No.... ::slowly backs away::

    I've gotten this before now that I'm pregnant with mine. It made me really angry at first since we've had pregnancy losses - there was nothing easy! On the flip side, I get a lot of "I'll pray for you" too.

    My personal favorite is when people ask what kind of babies we're having. I know they're looking for gender, but I tend to respond with human instead.
