How many of us are a twin or have twin babys? How did you cope with all the house work and taking care of two little ones at the same time. Or for those who are a twin, how close are you really to you twin?

I have a twin sister. We are fraternal twins and we were born a minute apart. We go through times where we look almost identical, and then we go through other times where we don't even look like sisters. Through all of the years, and all of our ups and downs, we are best friends. She was the Maid of Honor in my wedding and she is the person I go to for everything (besides my husband). We ended up going to different colleges for the first couple of years, and it felt like something was missing. We both ended up coming back to our hometown and going to college together. It really is perfect having a twin. It's like a built in best friend. No matter what happens, we're always there for each other.

I am loving being able to witness the special relationship between my twins grow. Is it true that you and your twin have a bond that goes beyond siblingship? What is it like?

I think it does go beyond "siblingship". We have a bond that goes beyond the normal sibling relationship. It even goes beyond a "best friend" relationship. It's almost as if your twin is your other half. The link is much stronger than just a friend or just a sibling. You pretty much share every part of your life together. Growing up, you go through the same things as each other, and experience the same firsts together. Friends come and go - even siblings have times when they're closer or times when they've grown apart. My twin sister and I have never had a time when we've grown apart. We have our fair share of fights, but we can never go more than (literally) 10 minutes and then we're back to normal. It's kind of hard to explain to someone who's not a twin. Of course, I've never experienced anything other than being a twin. Like I've said before, your twin is truly your best friend for life.

Well, I'm not a twin. Nor do I have twin babies. Or any babies for that matter. But anyway... I have a niece and a nephew who are twins. They also have a little sister close in age and my brother and his wife seem to have a difficult time keeping the three of them in check. The twins are 3 (will be 4 in August) and their little sister is 2. So yeah... 3 little ones, no matter if their twins or not, would be difficult. Also, we have twins in the family on my dad's side. So, I'd have a good chance of having twins, myself, but that's never gonna happen!

sera is the mother of boy/girl twins: jacob and jenna who are now 4 months old Housework! Yeah that doesn't get done anymore. We eat on paper plates, wash glasses and silverware when we need it. We wash clothes when we run out. We clean floors after noticing too much hair, crumbs, lint. The babies' always have clean clothes and linens and bottles. Our day starts when one twin wakes up. Then its a 2-3hours to feeding cycle all day long. Wake, diaper, bottle, play, soothe, sleep. Tedious but teaching babies to rely on their schedule and feel well adjusted to their routine. Now that babies are a bit older and can be put down on to play on their own, mama can putter and get some things done. Hands free moments are wonderful opportunities that don't go unused for laundry, mail, dishes, showering, interneting.

ther eis a history of twins in my family both me and brother and two cousins all have twins. I found it was easier to take care of twins than just one cause the twins entertained each other most of the time. while the odd one out until they were able to keep pace with the twins need to be entertained a bit. the work was about the same diapers and feedings but it was jsut as much for one as for two i found.
