Parents of twins are everyday superheroes ! Change two JOONE diapers at the same time ? No problem. Install two car seats in 1 minute chrono? Easy ! On a daily basis, parents of twins, Beyoncé and George Clooney included, however, hear a lot of crazy comments !
It's probably what parents of twins hear the most. As if that was not enough of a shock to learn you're going to have two babies instead of one... No need to add more !
Two options here : to embark on a well-documented scientific explanation of dizygotic, monozygotic twins, bichorial or mono-amniotic pregnancy. Or choose to answer that you know one thing for sure her : yes, it is indeed two REAL babies.
Yes, twin babies usually look alike. But, as a parent, you know for sure who is who (Did I say "For sure" ?)
So it's a blessing those two adorable babies were born in our family, not yours.
The expression "Sleep like a baby" was probably invented by childfree people. No doubt. So yes, maybe nights will be short for a while. But nursing, cuddling or singing lullabies even at midnight are unforgettable memories.
Because we are not in Shining.
It's weird because I remember quite well them being born in the same day. Twins can look alike, or not, they can be a girl and a boy, or two boys, they are still twins. But before being twins, they are two children that we love dearly.
Not natural, supernatural ! Picture this, for several month, there was 3 hearts beating in my body. Isn't is a miracle ? (And yes, IVF increase chances of having twins but it's our journey, our story)
Oh yes ! And they even manage to move objects with their eyes and travel through time. It's so much fun.
Some couples want two children, some want 6. Having twins is not a curse and surely doesn't mean you're done having children. And you know what ? Sometimes, a couple tries for a third child and...have twins again. It even happened to famous tennis player Roger Federer...
Here at Joone, we love twins ! Lucie has a twin sister and Thomas a twin brother. So we wanted to give the parents of twins in our community a special offer, which is both practically and financially effective. We offer all parents of twins a 50% reduction on their second lifetime subscription (£97.35 instead of £129.80 for the two subscriptions).
