I am not sure twins get the blame for that, judging by my youth, I think that is just as common with most siblings

On a side note, I am also an uncle to twins (fraternal 10 year old girls) who had their own language when they were about 2. They would carry on a conversation including laughing and no one could understand them except each other.

I have 4 1/2 year old fraternal twin boys. I really don't like when people say they'er not "real twins" just because the don't have the same face.

My husband had a lady at Costco trying to tell him our fraternal boys were not really twins since they're not identical. His response (I wasn't there) was, "You'd better not mention that to my wife who carried two babies at once! They're twins. "

Now that they're almost 3 and looking less and less alike and vary greatly in size no one believes they are twins anymore. It's kind of nice not dealing with the asinine twins comments.

I've never had anyone say anything remotely as rude as that to me. Thank goodness, because I would probably say something snarky.

So fun to see so many other twin parents!

I have twin boys (in my siggie!) and they were 8lb and not quite 7lb at birth. I had a scheduled c-section at 38wks. They were huge! I ended up with complications and was in the hospital for almost two weeks, but thankfully the boys stayed with me in the really, really nice maternity ward.

Our first trip to Disney is planned for this October and they will turn exactly 3.5 during it (October 14) and I hope it goes well. They can be a little hesitant in new situations, but they are very excited about the train ride. I joke that we will spend 6hrs just circling the park.

Do most of you use a double or two single strollers in the parks? We recently started using two singles for long daytrips because they would irritate each other in the double, but I worry that two strollers will be a lot to manage.

I have 9 month old B/G twins and a 3yr old singleton. We just decided to plan a trip to Disney (why not go before we have to pay for the twins to fly and pay for them to get into the park). The twins will be 13 months by our trip. I welcome any tips/advice for best rides/things to see/do at the parks.

I have boy / girl twins who will be 2.5 years old at time of our Disney trip.

I had someone at Target tell me one time that they were not "real" twins because they were not identical. Ummm?? Really?? Ugh!

My twins are 6. Err, I mean 6 1/2.

Tips: Nothing you haven't heard before but...

1. It goes by fast. Enjoy these times.
2. It DOES get easier.
3. We hired a nanny when my wife went back to work when they turned 1.
4. You will love it when they can buckle and un-buckle themselves.

Now we're heading to WDW with them.

We have identical 5 year old twin boys. They visited Disney World for the first time in February of 2012 and haven't stopped talking about it since! We have a surprise trip planned for May and I cannot wait to see their reactions when they realize where we are going.
