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

and here they are alone: (DD, 4 on Jan 30th)

They do look like twins, but they are adorable

OMG! they are so freaking adorable. I can see why someone might mistake them for twins, but obviously that woman just wanted to start something.
when my 2 older children were younger I would get the "oh, are they twins?" um, no they are 18 months apart. some people just don't get it.

here they are younger:

here they are now, with their younger brother:

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

In the beginning, I did. Now its like what for? lol SO loves to talk about it though

I can sort of relate. I have three sons. When people ask their ages, I am honest. Example: 9, 9, and 6. 


"Oh, twins?"


Sometimes, I like to watch people's wheels spin: "No, they're four months apart." 


Sometimes, I don't feel like chatting and simply say yes, they're twins. Go away. 


Sometimes, I tell the truth: "The younger one is adopted." This usually has several follow-up questions. 


Point is, it's really no one's business. 


Kudos for not slapping her! Lol :).

Yep, cocoa puffs here lol. I have even bribed her with "you can have a bowl of cereal if you eat these baby carrots." For shame I know. Most organic is a waste of $ anyway.

Oh...I'm just happy I can get my kid to eat veggies, they don't have to be organic.


Thanks! And this is what Im saying....veggies arent their fave. If it was up to them, they'd live off cereal. lol

My girls are 15 months apart (2 and 3) and they are the same size. People ask if they are twins sometimes...the only thing is my 2 year old doesn't have a lot of hair and my 3 year old has a head full of curls so I know that's why more people don't ask. There was one huge idiot that saw me with my 7 month old son, 2 year old and 3 year old and asked if they were triplets. I almost fell over from being hit with so much stupidity...I posted a pic of my girls on the next page.
