My Favorite Viral Twins

And no, I don’t mean the disease-causing type.

Since word first got out that I’m having twins, friends would sometimes tag me or post on my timeline to show me viral posts of cute/adorable/hilarious/relatable links on twins. And cute/adorable/hilarious/relatable they are! Here are some of my favorites:

5. Tatata-Talking Twins. 

These chatty cuties have even appeared on Ellen!

4. Fed Twice.

This hasn’t happened to us exactly, but there might have been some switching of bottles here and there, with one twin managing to get the one with more milk 🙂

3. Putting twins to sleep.

In separate rooms. With both twins mobile and obviously not at all sleepy. Good luck, Mommy!

2. Making breakfast with twins

Yes, it can definitely be like this. Twins do tend to appear the moment we open the fridge, and why not? It’s a magical cold box filled with food and stuff to tinker with and spill. They can’t lose.

1. Dancing Twins.

My favorite, and one of the first ones to appear on my feed. These girls are just too adorable! They’re a little older now, but their youtube channel shows that they’re still at it!

When tagging us on these posts, friends would ask, tongue-in-cheek: Is it like this? Does this happen to you? Well, yes. Indeed, raising twins does come with a lot of cute/adorable/hilarious situations.  There are also a lot of stressful situations, of course, but for the sake of our sanity we’d want to look at them as cute/adorable/hilarious instead. Because if there’s another thing that we keep hearing from friends, again and again, it’s this: we are blessed. Doubly blessed, wonderfully blessed, and we are thankful.

Facebook friends who make me facepalm and those who keep me on Facebook

We all have our Facebook faults, as well as finest moments.

Facebook friends who make me facepalm:

  1. The ones who are always sharing tips/warnings/promos that are so obviously fake you have to wonder if they should ever be allowed within range of a wifi signal.
  2. The ones who tend to share satirical news items thinking that they’re real news. Most often they are the same people as #1. I just feel that it deserves a separate item because it’s especially cringe-worthy.
  3. The ones who post status messages in textspeak. Well, I’m just not going to read that. I’m probably not the target audience anyway.
  4. The ones who are always angry. At every little thing. A little righteous indignation is ok, but constant complaining about First World problems is just making my eyes hurt from all the rolling.
  5. The one who’s always posting baby pictures. Yes, I am fully aware that sometimes this person is me. Yes, I know there are countless other baby photos in the world and people don’t really need to see another one. No, I will not stop posting baby photos. I will, however, promise to never post baby poop photos, because apparently some people do that although fortunately not on my feed. Eeww, wtf dude.
  6. I guess this is sort of the mother category of #5. The ones who are always posting about basically the same thing. Food pictures. Workout stats. Rants/raves about a tv show that I don’t watch. The keyword here is “always”. Really, there’s no need to share all of that all the time. Except maybe if it’s related to a particular cause/advocacy, because I do that too.
  7. The ones posting tv/movie/book spoilers. How. Could. You. Okay I did this once before too, but c’mon. It was Harry Freaking Potter. I sort of assumed everyone knew that – um, nothing, forget it.
  8. The one who was always posting selfies. Always. But thank God you stopped. Don’t go into relapse now.
