"So which of them is the B-E-S-T?"
Ummm...OHMMM... (deep breath 1..2..3..4..5..6..7..8..9..10..9..8..7..6..5...)
Where do I begin? Seriously?!? First of, we're in one tiny room together. You, me and the twins. Between the two of them, they've got four good ears. Statistics will show at least one is bound to hear that for sure. Add to that the fact that they ARE children. And oh wow don't we all know how they love to play deaf when you ask them to get off the FIFA game on your Iphone to brush their teeth but suddenly all ears when they're in a room full of grown-ups? More importantly they've got two hearts too, in case it didn't occur to you. If I did give you an answer how would that work for you? Will you show preference for the "best" one or go for the underdog? Favoritism never helps anyone. Not the favored one and not the neglected one. No one. Please trust me on this. Oh and have you forgotten? They are almost six. They can spell B-E-S-T. They can even spell T-A-C-T-L-E-S-S. Possibly even I-D-I-O-T-I-C. No, really. They can. Oh and you're asking about my TWO boys right? So the proper question would be: Which one is B-E-T-T-E-R? That's just grammar-wise of course because there's nothing proper about the question itself.
Well you did ask so here you go: They're both really, really great in their own way and they're the B-E-S-T things that ever happened to me.
Thank you for asking.
While I'm at it here are a few more questions NOT to ask a mom of twins:
ARE THEY IVF OR NATURAL?
Not anyone's business unless the information is readily given. Mine were conceived without the aid of fertility drugs or procedures and yet I don’t think they are any more “natural” than those conceived via IVF.
WHY DON’T THEY LOOK ALIKE? WHY IS ONE DARKER THAN THE OTHER?
Because not all twins do. Some twins are fraternal, some are identical and even many identical twins don’t look exactly alike. Same rule applies to skin shades.
WHO DO YOU LOVE MORE?
Please don’t ever make us choose. There is more than enough love to go around.
DON’T YOU WISH THEY WERE GIRL/BOY INSTEAD?
A Girl/ Boy set seems really cool but I am totally in love with my two so let's keep it at that.
WHO IS THE GOOD ONE AND WHO IS THE BAD ONE?
(This one has left me speechless. Still does. Suggestions needed)
