when people comment about your twins or triplets what do you hear most?
I mostly get " are they twins?" even though I have identical twin boys lol. I dont know if they are just making polite conversation or what because its such a dumb question. Do people ask you ladies the same thing? I also get a lot of comments about how cute they are

Oh yes. I get told I have such cute twin boys (even though mine are b/g twins and the girl has pink or purple on! Abigail can't help it if she still doesn't have much hair)

I also get a lot of "You have your hands full" (to which my usual answer, since they are both strapper into a cart or stroller is "Nope, my hands are empty" as I show my empty hands

I get the "are they twins" comment a lot too even though mine are ID. They don't dress the same, so I think that throws people. I also get the "your hands are full" comment. I get it more often now that I have a 3rd child. I usually say "better full than empty". I think those are the most common comments. I get a ton of other random ones all the time. My all time favorite comment came from a woman working at the DMV. She asked "Are they twins?" when I said "Yes" she then asked "Are they both yours?"

Thank you peimum for my siggie

We get a lot of stares and "oh my, you must be so busy." I'm sure we make quite a scene with a 27-month old and a baby in the stroller and then me wearing a baby. I usually say something like "yes, and I love every minute!" After all our struggles to have these babies, I don't mind being busy one bit

I seem to have a knack for coming across old ladies who insist my b/g twins are identical, or that they and my son who is 15 months older are triplets. At this point, I just nod along and agree with pretty much anything they say. It's easier than arguing.
