double trouble....

..... as we are getting closer to celebrating our girls 2nd birthday, i'm wondering how many times i've heard this! it began as soon as we found out we were having twins {12 weeks into the pregnancy} and pretty much hasn't stopped since....

my question is.... do people of singletons get random people coming up to them in the street and saying "ooooo trouble" ?? probably not, so why because i have 2 adorable little girls does it mean they would be trouble?? i know it's just a saying, but when you go through a pregnancy like we did, not knowing from day to day if my girls were going to survive, trust me having 2 of the most gorgeous, good little girls doesn't seem like much trouble to me!

my extremely little vent over and back to feeling so blessed to have all that i do

i hope you all have a wonderful weekend... we are taking the girls to the zoo for the first time and i'm so excited.... they just adore animals {down to kissing ants and bugs... eeewwww} and i cannot wait to see the baby elephant and spend some quality time with my family :)

They are so gorgeous! And I don't think double trouble at all, I think twice the fun!

Double the fun, joy and laughter.

thank you! i know most people think as you do it just gets on top of me some days when the 15 or so people that decide to talk to me while i'm running around trying to get things done give me that negative saying....

but i'm all happy again :)

ohmygoodness. I am so there with you. I HATE it when people stop me to tell me that it must be trouble, that isn't is just too much like hard work, oh, goodness, you just wait until they're older, then you're in trouble....etc etc.

I say the same thing every time - "actually, no, they're no trouble at all. they are a complete delight"

your little girls are such treasures.

No matter how many kids you have, there is always someone who makes a comment!
I have one daughter, and I am tired of the "only child" comments....
"She'll be spoiled", "She won't learn to share" blah blah blah.
And my favourite of all time, when she was a newborn.... "Is she a good baby?" (No, she's a BAD, BADDD baby! lol)

I hear you!!! I love the "you have your hands full" comment and then they proceed to want to chat!!! Excuse me, I have a 3 year old and 21 month old twins!!!!!!! Do I look like I have time to chat to random strangers?!? I barely catch up with the friends I love!!!
But that being said, I am a lucky lady :)
