Aub and Court turn six today.  There is no better day than today to give you the answers to the top questions I am asked ALL OF THE TIME.

***These opinions are based on my own experiences. By no means do these examples reflect universal experiences.. I have no clue how others feel about their life with multiples.

  1. No, it is not always harder to have twins. As a matter of fact, it could be easier than two kids of different ages. They do all of the same things.
  2. No, I don’t dress them alike. They are 6 and that is creepy and that will make them weirder than they already are. Plus I can’t dress them alike because they do not like outfits that match and make sense. They wear outfits that aren’t even outfits.
  3. No, I am not separating them. I am not separating them because they were born together and they need to figure out life together.
  4. I know. They may have a harder time when they are older, but hopefully when they realize I screwed them up they will have a dorm room to call home.
  5. Yes, they are identical.
  6. Because I was told that they are identical.
  7. Because they look identical.
  8. Yes they do.
  9. Trust me. I can’t tell them apart.
  10. No, I did not use fertility drugs. I would never choose this life.
  11. Calm down. I am just kidding. I am twice blessed.
  12. I don’t understand. What do you mean how do you get anything done? I get things done the same way any other Mom gets things done. I ignore my kids.
  13. No, I don’t buy them two of everything. Last time I checked, I am not Noah and this is not an ark.
  14. I actually don‘t remember the baby stage.
  15. I actually don’t remember because I was in a coma.

And that my friends is usually the end of the conversation.

    Kristi, you definitely said it all! You are truly blessed and I remember when the twins were born and I remember when you were in the coma! While you were sleeping, you brought thousands of people together (I was going to say hundreds, but that would be fibbing), people unified in prayer and love for you and your family! Anyone that knew you brought your story to their friends and co-workers and the prayer chain grew as well as the help! We met in Chic Filets, DECA Dodgeball and many other places. We all had one very special person in common and that was YOU! Your sweet girls were in good hands and although you missed a little (I know it seems like a lot), God granted you a lifetime to share with your friends and family! I will always be in awe of you and I love you! And your girls have their wonderful, spunky Mom and devoted Dad to grow up with! God is good!
