No they're not twins. Yes I know what I'm talking about. *piog*

Posted by   + Show Post

 A couple days ago, DD, DS and I were in the check out line at the supermarket. For some reason, the store was overly crowded, and someone just HAD to make useless conversation with me. Whatever, I'm not rude, I'll talk back...nothing better to do.
So this woman goes "awwwww they are ADORABLE! Twins?" And it's not like it's a question I'm not use to, I kinda saw it coming. But after I said "Thanks so much but nope :)" In my bet youre gonna be suprised voice, she's all (in her proof or it didn't happen voice) "So how old are they?" She sounded really skeptical (I can see why, they're about the same height, and close to the same weight), but why would I lie? Idk, but I go "they're 3 but--" She TOTALLY cuts me off to tell me "I shouldn't lie because lying is a sin" *MAJOR EYE ROLL* --> **Sidenote: DD & DS are 10 mths 28 days apart, both born in 2009. DS turned 3 on Dec 28th which makes him share his age with DD for a month who wont be 4 till Jan 30th** So I proceed to explain this to her, the fact that they were both born in the same year making them less than a year apart but she doesn't let me get anywhere NEAR that subject. She's all, "I bet you were a teen mom" O_O "Yeah so?" Shes mumbling under her breath what sounds like "This is why kids dont need to have kids." Really lady? Dont you think I'd know if I had two kids on the same day? So she looks up at me and goes "they're 3, but they're not twins? Is that really the story youre trying to stick to?" I'm like "I was TRYING to tell you, they're 3, but he JUST turned 3, and she'll be 4 at the end of the month." Then DD starts bugging me about some skittles or M & M's....something I wasn't gonna buy. I tell her to leave the candy alone because it's bad for her teeth & you see this woman really thinking about what I said and goes "That doesnt add up" SHE CANT BE SERIOUS. WHY IS SHE EVEN TALKING TO ME? BETTER YET, WHY AM I RESPONDING? I STILL HAVE *NO* CLUE, BUT I WAS. "What doesn't add up miss?" "The dates" IS SHE REALLY TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHEN I CONCIEVED? UGH "Miss, I'm not gonna sit here and talk to you about when my son was concieved. I would know if I had twins, and if I did, I'd be fine with telling people I had twins." In my head I'm like: Don't you think it'd be easier to tell people I was 18 with two kids because I had twins, not because I couldn't control myself? So she asks me how old I am, since I claimed to be a teen mom. "I'm 21. I'll be 22 next month" She goes back to adding whatever the hell she's adding, to go "Well atleast that makes sense" O_O UGH LEAVE ME ALONE. I'M TRYING NOT TO BE RUDE HERE. I'm finally at the check out & then she starts shit talking my groceries. "Oh you're not gonna feed them that are you?" I'm ignoring her at this point, because she was really getting on my nerves. I had a couple packs of chicken, a pack of carrots, a pack of celery (they love raw celery sticks) some apple juice and a couple other things. She's bitching because I don't do organic veggies. UGH wtf is this womans problem? I know I'm not the only person in 2013 that hasn't gone organic. Why didn't I need a few more thing so that I walked around the store longer & missed her in the line? First she basically tells me I'm lying about when my children were born, and then I'm shit because regular veggies are good enough for us. What did I do to deserve this shopping trip?
Guess what? My kids ate those veggies and they're still alive! <3

I meant to post this a few days ago, but never felt like typing it out lol
Here they are with daddy

I used to get the "oh are they twins?" when I was caring for a child 3 months younger than my son. I would say "no they are 3 months apart." I would get all sorts of questions, accusations of lying, and dirty looks and I would just say "please stop accusing me. you never bothered to ask if they were both mine. this one is but she is a friend's daughter. I'm not lying. it's completely possible. you shouldn't be so quick to judge." and leave them apologizing.

My friends kids were Irish twins....just over 9 months apart BC baby 2 was premie, and people were always ignorant with it...oh, and being young has nothing to do with it...she was 30 when she gave birth to both of them

My friend has 2- 9 months apart so Im sure she feels your pain.....she always tells people they are Irish Twins (siblings who are born in same year). People just nod and look confused

I have herd siblings that close in age called Dutch Twins. I have 2 younger sisters who are 10 months and 5 days apart. So maybe you can start saying they are Dutch Twins and explain they are 10 months apart.

I think its Irish twins, SO actually goes into that with people, but I dont have that kind of time lol.

They are adorable. And they really do look like they could be twins, but I believe you when you say they aren't. :)
Oh...I'm just happy I can get my kid to eat veggies, they don't have to be organic.

I think her teen mom reference was her way of saying I cant keep track of my seeds *eye roll*

We call our oldest two Irish Twins. They are 11 months apart. For 16 days they are the same age....but while they are both boys, they are very different sizes so I get asked from time to time. My brother was 12 months younger than my sister but by the time he turned one, he was already bigger than her.
