I do not mean to sound ungrateful that people find my twins amusing, I sometimes do not mind answering the NUMEROUS questions over and over again. Yet sometimes either me or my two girls are having an off day. You know the day when you are lucky that you ran a brush through your hair, and are not in the mood to talk. Not only that but why is it that the "novelty" of having twins opens us up for people to feel free to touch them or even lift up their blanket covering to take a look without asking. Not only that but sometimes the questions or comments are downright invasive. From you did not have them on purpose because it is trendy did you? to Well better me than you or I hope you are breastfeeding them because even though it may be tough with two it IS possible if you care enough. To are they natural (no, they are made of plastic). Okay I am so sorry this message is kind of negative but I really needed to vent, and am open to anyone who has found a way to deal with this issue.
Usually I am okay and people are for the most part nice and intrigued, but there are always that few that just wear. Again I am so sorry to vent but I just got back from Costco on what turned out to be a nightmare outing. I feel guilty because I left a bit out of sorts. I am so open to advice on how to cope better or at least answer as politely as possible even when one of my daughters may be in the middle of a meltdown at the time.
