  • I get the same. My daughter is almost 3 and my son just turned 1. They are 20 months apart and people ask me that all the time because my 1 yr old is almost the size of a 2 yr old. He is 3 inches and 5 pounds shy of his big sister

  • Because so many people have kids close in age these days and there are plenty that do look like they could be twins but arent- and it seems to be popular for those people to dress their kids that are 10mths apart alike- since twins can be different sizes..

    As a mother to twins the question does annoy me because once you say yes they are twins a lot of people feel the need to inform you of their family history on their multiples and your stuck there for 5minutes or more when all you want to do is finish your shopping...

  • I have a nephew that is 3 days younger than my adopted son of a different race, when they were younger people would ask if they were twins. One day my mom replied why yes they are, they were born 3 days apart and have different fathers and mothers, that shut them up.

  • People are just being nice, making conversation. "Are they twins?" is a good icebreaker.
