Most of us can’t imaging what it’s like to raise two little people at the exact same time – twins are a whole new world, and unless you’ve been there firsthand, there’s no way to really wrap your mind around it.
That said, these 10 parents of twins are trying to let us in on all of the secrets with these super funny tweets about living life in double.
10. Just a little creepy is ok.
Like, a fun level of creepy.
Sometimes I'm disappointed that my identical twins aren't creepier. No secret language, no phantom connection, no REDRUM.

9. Why is there not a built-in workaround for that?
Like? Twins are not that rare?
Insurance Co: That claim was denied because you exceeded the number of people allowed with one birthday.
Me: They're twins.
IC: Rules are rules.

8. This is their mantra.
Best to just go along with it.
I'm a parent of twins, I don't care about fair, I just want things to be even

7. Better both than neither.
In this situation, at least.
My 4 year old twins used to fight about who got to flush the toilet first. Now no one does. We're going in the wrong direction.

6. I doubt she was thrilled.
I’m just saying.
First woman that gave birth to twins was prolly like “????????”

5. They just look alike.
The rest is a crapshoot.
I hear the same 3 drawers open and close 50 times as my son desperately searches for his homework.
His brother is hyper-organized and has zero problems finding his homework.
HOW CAN TWINS BE DIFFERENT!?!??

4. A very helpful graph.
That seems about right, except most parents are at least a little bit insane.

3. Fun fact: boy/girl twins are never identical.
I feel like everyone should know that by now.
When people look at my twins and ask if they're identical, I say, "Sure, except for the penis on the boy. And every other thing about them."

2. Eh, it’s one of you.
Couldn’t one of them have had a birthmark or something?
Twin 1: *looking at an old photo album* Is this me?
Me: I literally have no idea.

1. That clears it up.
It probably doesn’t really matter, though. Right?
I’m a mum to identical twins and I can regularly tell them apart until I’m in another room and a wee voice calls out ‘MAMMY?’
So I ask ‘Who is looking for me?’
And they just reply ‘Me.’ #parenting #twins

I don’t know if I could do it, y’all. Hat’s off to those folks who have to deal with two demons…. um, bundles of joy, at the same time.
If you’ve got twins, we want to hear your best stories down in the comments!
Seriously… what would you do if you had that many kids at the same time?
