When you have twins, people ask you all kinds of questions about them. One of them, which is a little invasive, is whether or not they are natural. Well, they’re not aliens! But really what they mean is were they spontaneous, or did you have help? Even the thought of them being spontaneous makes one think of walking down the street, and BOOM! You’re having twins!
The more I get to know some of the other moms in my multiples group, the more I realize how lucky we are. So many women in the group were in vitro fertilization (or IVF-ers), and talk about how long they tried and how ecstatic they were to find out they were pregnant, and that they were more than likely having multiples. It just hit me tonight that although the thought of me being hit with a twinning lightening rod, thus causing my egg’s spontaneous splitting, was pretty funny, we are some of the lucky ones. I need to remember to count my blessings each day, and remember that although my life with two babies is not a breeze, we were sent this challenge for a reason. We are truly blessed.
Enjoy the slideshow entitled “Big Brown Eyes.” My favorite line from the song is “You’ve made a big impression for a girl of your size/Now I can’t get by without you and your big brown eyes.” So true.
