Many parents of twins is hard to believe how fast time flies. It would seem that yesterday in the hospital you have stretched two sniffling convolution, and today the "convolution" are already in first grade ... But most of the parents of twins are happy to tell you what a great thing - two children born with a difference of a few minutes. If you have recently joined the elite club of parents of twins, and you still difficult to find a "plus" in your position, here are ten reasons to take a fresh look at the situation.
With the twins do not have time to sit on the ground, so you have to move a lot
One American-female twins once counted how many times a day she has to go up and down the stairs from the first to the second floor you need to cook a meal, trace, sleep Children, or already awake, change diapers, change clothes and prepare to walk. .. The resulting figure it stunned 49 times.
When children grow up, you will not have to sit on their hands will need to catch them - in the kitchen, in the store, on the playground.
Since constantly have to carry on the hands of both children receive an excellent workout for the muscles of the hands. Yes, a couple of years you will have those biceps as Sarah Connor in "Terminator." Have you ever seen a full mom of twins? No? Now you know why.
Unfortunately, all have to do twice ... Fortunately, all have to do twice
Many people find that very hard to bring the twins: twice as many worries and troubles, twice the costs and expenses ... What say? This is not entirely true, or rather, not so. If you have twins, you do everything the same as with one child only twice. Change diapers one - and doing the same for the second, preparing a meal for two, put them to sleep together.
However, often it has to be repeated twice own words. But this also has its benefits - so you will not forget what I said.
I often need to shop
Mothers of twins often have to go and see in supermarkets and shopping centers: that pampers the finish (it is not a paradox - diapers tend to "suddenly come to an end," regardless of how many packages you bought the last time), the baby food ...
Indeed, twice a year to update a wardrobe full of children - is not easy, especially if you have a boy and a girl, but this is an excellent opportunity to improve your organizational skills.
I've been saving both due to discounts and promotions
You would not believe how many of discounts and promotions you're missing if rarely in stores. Some large retail chains and malls offer special discounts for large parents, especially parents of twins and triplets.
So, with discounts (sometimes very significant) can be obtained in the following products:
- paper napkins and towels;
- baby food;
- cradles and cribs;
- seat for transportation of the child in the car;
- children's books and teaching aids.
On the street I feel like a superstar - all the attention drawn to me
Any mom of twins will tell you that the street it feels Angelina Jolie - passers-by, especially the elderly, consider it their duty to come and meet you, admire the kids.
At first, the attention of many a frustrating and confusing, but eventually you get used to it and feel at ease if for a walk you will not hear at least one praise your twins.
Try to answer the questions of strangers, of course, if they do not go beyond the permissible. Fortunately, most are limited syusyukanem and memories of their own children.
Sometimes strangers asking me personal questions
Yes, it's not the most pleasant moment. It's amazing how personal issues sometimes ask complete strangers. For example, often ask: "What about your twins conceived naturally or they are out of the tube? ". Or: "Your twins - Identical? ". Another: "I guess you and sit down once? ".
Nobody asks where I'm planning next baby
I think others do not ask this question, molesting many mothers because everything is obvious.
Twins do not need to entertain - they entertain each other
If you - mom of twins and doing housework, it is important that children do not need to come up with activities and entertainment, because they do an excellent job with this task. The twins from birth have a loyal friend, comrade for games and an interesting conversationalist. Agree: If the children were of different ages, you would have to look after them much closer. Yes twins invent crazy games, and if they thought the prank - beware.
I enter the inner circle "of parents of twins"
Every day, members of the "secret society" Parents of twins are more and more. In this "secret society" includes mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters, who defend the interests of each other, share advice, tell stories of life and support in difficult times.
Twins - twice as many love twice as many hugs and kisses
When I first heard "Congratulations, you have twins! "You will feel confused. But, having overcome the initial shock, you'll realize that would not want other developments. Perhaps the birth of twins, their education will be the highlight of your life, your greatest achievement.
Yes, it will be difficult, but these difficulties will be forgotten, once you look at your kids. Every day, watching them grow and develop - a priceless gift. You know, what is the best feeling in the world? When you hug your children and they kiss you on the cheek. Simultaneously.
