Having kids is a blessing, for sure, but I can tell you from experience that bringing home one newborn baby is quite enough of a life change. I can’t imagine bringing home two at the same time, to be honest, but people do it every day!
If you’ve been there, or are going to be there, or are just curious what it’s like, these 11 posts will give you a little peek behind the curtain.
11. They turn out how they want.
Like all kids, actually.
So a right-wing southerner and a liberal psych major walk into a bar…
No joke here. My twins are home from college this week.

10. Use your eyes, people!
Stop asking me these questions!
One of my twins is 3" taller than the other + they have diff hair/eye colors, so when someone asks if they're identical, I always say "yes"

9. So fun, right?
This is one of the best parts of all parenting.
One of my favorite things about having twins is getting to watch two tiny humans violently argue over an item while an identical version of the same item sits unplayed with 3 feet away. #Dadlife #Parenting

8. It was like a secret little game they played.
And it didn’t hurt anyone so that’s fun enough.
In the weeks after my b/g twins were born they were tiny, skinny & bald and my then 4yo would ask “which one is this?” and I’d reply “which do you think?” and he’d say one of their names and I’d always say yes bc honestly just looking at their faces I didn’t have a clue either

7. Who put Woody on the front of boy’s pull-ups?
I have some words for them. After I stop laughing.
[Overheard from the other room]:
Twin A: See? My woodys happy right here in the front
Twin B: Yea! Look at MY happy woody!
Me: Sweet Jesus, what are they doing now?!? *goes to check*
[Finds them with their Toy Story pull-ups on correctly with woody in the front] Ohhhhh good

6. He knew what happened next.
And he was not there for it.
[after having one kid then having twins]
wife: we should have sex
fibonacci: absolutely not

5. That’s a lot of cake.
Hope they like something delicious.
T1: "We want separate cakes for our birthday."
Me: "Ok, are they going to be different cakes?"
T2: "Nope. Both the same."#twins 😕😥

4. You’d better eat the one piece of candy.
It’s the only answer.
With twins, the only thing worse than having no candy is having only one piece of candy.

3. Just keep working on it.
You’ll get there eventually.
I have my twins 50% convinced they are actually triplets, and the third triplet is a vampire that lives in the attic

2. I think I’ve seen that episode.
In every detective show ever.
Both my twins are pitching a detective series where every single episode ends with the reveal that the other one did it.

1. Why do we need so much stuff?
And rest assured, whatever they want we will have left at home.
Mother at the park with twin three year olds, and a one year old in a stroller.
To get from the car to the play area, she was loaded like a pack mule crossing the Himalayas.

These are hilarious, and my hat is so off to these folks.
Do you have twins? Do you know what twins are? Do you have two of the same thing?
Tell us a great story down in the comments!
