Hands Full

People always say "I bet you've got your hands full" and I reply, "I'd rather have my hands full than empty" and that shuts them up!

Very annoying
by: Christine

It's almost as though people are showing pitty for you that you are having twins. Like its more of a burden then a blessing. The usual comments I get when I tell people I am having twins is "Omg how are you going to manage" "Better you than me" "Get your sleep now" and so on. I always think to myself, absolutely better me than you, obviously you wouldn't be able to handle it.

stupid comments

I have 2 boys and identicle twin girls and get that question all the time. It is extremely annoying. I simply state, "Well if you feel that way, don't hesitate to come on over and help. I'm sure I could find something for you to do." They usually shut up and walk away.

How do you do it
by: Anonymous

I always have people saying 'I don't know how you do it' (talking about taking care of 5 mo. old twins, a 12 year old, and an 8 year old)well, I don't really have any other option and I really enjoy raising my kids. I wouldn't have it any other way. :)

by: Anonymous

I have a four year old boy, and 11 month old twin boys. I love it when I am at the store with all of them, trying to get them all situated into a cart or checking out and someone wants to chat about how hard it must be to do alone. Im like, cant you tell that I am busy NOW, and dont have time to talk to you about how busy I am?

Hands full? Then help me!
by: maddie and paige's mom

How about all the people who say "looks like you have your hands full" as I am carrying two car seats and trying to open a door that DO NOT offer to open it for me. Those people are very lucky that I have my hands full....
