You might be a Twin Mom if....

You have more breast milk in your freezer than food.

One baby throws up and you spend more time cleaning up the other one.

You wash dozens of bottles and/or sippy cups, and a day later, can't find a clean one. 

Your idea of a quiet day is having only one baby crying at a time.

You spend 3 hours getting ready, filling an entire mini-van, etc. for a 2 hour visit to family/friends.

You realize after leaving the house you have no idea what YOU look like. 

You grab a cart at Target for babies, not stuff.

You walk extra fast through stores, not because you're in a hurry, but you're just not in the mood to talk to anyone.

If you do see a stranger, you start mentally rolling through which question/phrase you're about to hear (it WILL be one of the following): 
"Double Trouble!" 
"Boy, you have your hands full," 
"Better you than me!" 
"Do twins run in your family?" 
Or, of course the simple, "Are they twins?"

Despite all that, it feels completely wrong to go ANYWHERE with only one of them.

Digital Babies...

It's funny how I'll come across an article that is so in tune with whatever might be happening in my life right now. Just last night, I moved the girl' computer into the living room. I know... when my sister told me that my nephew Bowen had his own computer, when he was still a little baby, I thought it was crazy :-p But, then you find your views on a lot of things change once you actually become a parent :-)

Anyway, we always seem to have a ton of computers in the house, of various ages and conditions :-p And the girls have had their own computer in their room for awhile now... ever since they won their first little Baby Computer game system in that Baby Photo contest on MommyAuctions :-) And then my Mom gave them a whole new, more advanced one, for Christmas. So, they like to go in there a lot and play with it. But, I wanted to move it out here for a few reasons....

For one, with it being back in their room, it's harder to keep an eye on what they're doing/how long they're doing it. They're pretty good with no supervision... they know how to work everything (they're full-fledged computer geeks :-p), they take plenty of breaks and play with plenty of other things besides the computer... but, I just liked the idea of having it out here better. It's actually back-to-back with my computer here... and they even seem to like it out here, better. Plus, it'll be easier to hook up to the internet. Right now they've just been playing the computer game that my Mom bought them on that computer, but they constantly want to get on my computer, because they also love the games atFisherPrice.com and PBS.com... so, I want them to be able to do that on their own computer from now on, instead of hogging mine all the time :-p
