Top 5 Annoying Amusing Comments

Sorry guys, I'm certain you're going to get twin comments your whole life. Hopefully you find them amusing and not annoying.

Everywhere we go, people comment on the babies. I'm sure it's that way even when you have one baby, but sometimes it's ridiculous. I tell myself people are just curious. But some of the things people have said...seriously?

Top 5 Annoying Amusing Things People Have Said to Me
And the things I wish I said back

1. (While shopping at Costco...) Oh, were you disappointed when you found out you were having twins?
WTF? Are you kidding me? So not disappointed, and would clearly not wish to discuss that personal feeling with stranger in warehouse if I had been.
2. OH MY GOSH TWINS! Are they identical?
No. My son has a penis, my daughter does not.

3. Twins? Oh look at your daughter, she's a lot smarter than the boy.
Did you honestly just say that? Based on..?

4. (While at the post office...) Oh no! Your daughter is hot. She needs out of her seat.
Really Mame? She's hot? It's 103 degrees out, what gave you the impression that she may be hot? Take her out of her seat? And carry her, my package, her seat, and her brother in his seat? You try.

5. Are you breastfeeding? You really should breastfeed. Breastfed babies are soooooo much healthier. Young women these days just don't understand the importance of breastfeeding.
If you say the word breastfeeding again I might throw up. Not that it's any of your business, but for the first three months of these babies lives, my boobs were out at least eight hours a day. Did you get that? It literally took me EIGHT HOURS A DAY to feed two babies. I now nurse both at the same time like rock star. Don't talk to me about breastfeeding. I'm doing just fine. Not that it's any of your business.

Not all the comments are this obnoxious. Many people just want to say hello and congratulations. But really, some people are absolutely stupid.

haha! I remember it seemed like everyone wanted to know if I was breastfeeding. I'm glad I'm not the only one :) Even a few men asked. Creeepyy. But seriously, you ARE a rock star for feeding them both at the same time, you should be VERY proud of what a great mommy you are to them!

Haha I think this is my favorite blog! People are stupid. I love you!


Haha... Yeah. People really can be stupid. I could give you some of the terrible things people said to me when I'd have Jackson out and about before his surgery. All that to say, I'm with you.

Wow! I'm certainly glad you got that off of your chest. You make me laugh. People do say weird things; I guess they just don't think before they open their mouths. You ARE the greatest.
Love ya

this reminds me of a recent trip to the library. the librarian tried to start a conversation with Amaris who can be shy at times. Amaris avoided eye contact and said nothing. The librarian looked at me a loudly asked, "Does she speak?" I said "yes". She rudly responded, "in sentences????" I politley explained that she is shy. What I wanted to say was, "oh, man I am so glad that you brought this to my attention. You know, I never noticed that my 5 year old wasnt speaking in sentences. Im really glad that you have diaganosed her with autism or some disablilty... Im sure you are a pediatrician or have a degree in child development since you WORK AT THE LIBRARY!!!!"
