Until I had kids, I used to believe there wasn't any such thing as a stupid question, because hey, if you didn't know, you didn't know, so why not just ask?
I changed my mind when I had kids and got these questions (and I got them a LOT) - "Are your kids twins?" Answer - "No". Question - "Are you sure?" Answer - "Yeah, I'm sure. There's 15 months between them. (Or, if I was in a "mood" - Umm, I'm pretty sure I would remember 15 mos of labor, so yeah, they're NOT twins...).
This exchange would usually be followed with "WOW, they aren't twins? But they look identical!" (Which might not be so funny, except my kids are opposite sex!)
What is the stupidest thing you have been asked "in real life"?

LOL. My boys are almost four years apart and some people will ask me if they are twins. Umm hello??? Take a better look. I also had people ask me if they were or a boy or girl when they were wearing blue or the clothes that made it obvious they were boys, same with my daughter.

LOL - thanks ladies :-) Even though it's sad to see that there are so many people walking around asking dumb questions about other people's kids, it's good to know that they all aren't just talking to me
