The Trouble With Twins

I thought I'd dealt with the hardest things about having twins. IE. Pregnancy, breastfeeding 2 babies, differing sleep schedules, potty training, and enduring the terrible 3's times two.

I'm wrong. I'm now stumbling into new territory, that of Planet School. Tonight I went to curriculum night where I spoke privately with the teacher. She and I discussed Boy Wondertwin without her ever having mentioned my daughter. I wonder if this is going to be a regular thing. I hope that neither of my kids will "suffer" as a result of having another just like him/her. I'm starting to see why parents choose to split up their twins.

No cause for panic presently but I do hope that both twins get equal treatment and equal attention. I guess we'll see.


  1. I have the problem with teachers trying to measure my daughter by the standard my son has set. My oldest daughter and her older brother are VERY different and one of my least favorite phrases is, "I'm not sure why JB is having a hard time with *blank* because BB caught on right away." Sadly, I think to some degree what you are talking about is inevitable.

  2. Since I was the oldest, there was no one to compare to but you are right. Whether it's a twin, sibling, cousin or even sometimes a friend, those comparisons happen. That stinks!
