Who gets the biggest kick out of your having multiples?

Maybe you do! Or hubby, possibly a sibling who loves them beyond all belief, or a grandparent... or maybe you're all taking it in stride and it's the strangers and friends who make a bigger deal about it!

Who got the biggest kick out of it when you found out in the first place? What were some of the best reactions you received to your multi-news?

Much thanks to Alethia for my beautiful siggie and tags!!

Oh gosh ... too many questions to answer at once. Hmmm ... I think DH and I both get a great kick out of having two, but I know I truly enjoy it. I am one of the weird ones that 99% of the time we are out actually love showing them off to people and don't mind being stopped. (I mean if I had one I would probably LOVE showing them off too just wouldn't get stopped as often).

Most of our families haven't met them yet, so while they love the pics, I don't think the reality has set in for them like it has for us. I know my mom loves to show new pictures off to her clubs

I think my sister got the biggest kick out of it (DH and I were in too much shock to list us there). I say my sister, because she is definitely the one I say (jokingly) jinxed us into having twins. I had a m/c just a little over a month before we got pregnant with the twins. When I had called my sis after the m/c she encouraged me by telling me a story of a friend of hers who also had a m/c with their first pregnancy and 3 months later was pregant with twins. She meant it just as an encouragement that I could easily have a healthy next pregnancy. Well, by the time we had our first OB appt and found out it was twins, it was just about exactly 3 months after the m/c. My sister got a huge kick out of that.

My mom definitely gets the biggest kick out of it. She takes their picture with her everywhere she goes and shows anyone she talks to the picture.

The most interesting reaction I had was from a cousin. I was on the pill when I got pregnant with the twins because I didn't want to have any kids while I am going through school. Obviously, the pill didn't work. Anyway, my cousin says ,"That'll teach you to try and prevent a pregnancy." Real nice.
