I shudder to think

Emma B. describes via instant messenger what life is like with twins:
but i cannot seem to explain to people [...] how it's just DIFFERENT when you have two precisely the same age.
my mom gets it, because she's spent the most time watching them.
but when there's one of you and two of them, it can be a lot.
one of them climbs up the outside of the stairs, and while you're removing her and scolding her, the other one's halfway to the top.
they were in the bath the other day, and [...] they kept standing up, and as soon as i'd push one of them into a sit, the other would pop back up.

it's like some giant game of whack-a-mole, some days.

You wouldn't believe how many people tell me that, watercolor. I love having twins, I really do, but they're exponentially more work than a singleton.
