You Know You're a Mom of Multiples When...

By January 5, 2013

Follow me on:

"... No one can ride in your car because it's full of safety seats and the front passenger seat holds the duffle bag of baby stuff you need for a "quick" trip to the store."

"... When you take one of your twins to the doctor because he/she is sick then you ask the doctor for two prescriptions because you know the other twin will be catching it too, really soon."

and then "... the insurance company denies payment for medication because you had two of the same prescription filled on the same day."

"... (you) buy all sorts of stuff online to avoid packing up your singleton & twins and going to the store."

"... you can sit 2 kids in highchairs, pop open 2 jars of baby food, and -- with a spoon in each hand -- feed both kids simultaneously."

If any of these situations apply to you, then you know you're a mom of multiples! These are just a few of the clever responses submitted by readers of this site. What about you? Share your comments on mothering multiples by completing this sentence: "You Know You're a Mom of Multiples When..."
