You might be the parent of twins…..

Almost everyone I know has heard the jokes by Jeff Foxworthy…..You might be a redneck if……I have decided to put a little spin on this joke but have altered it slightly because…….You might be the parent of twins if……

  • You plan your grocery shopping based on stores that have double carts
  • You disagree completely that having a newborn and a 1 year old is NOT LIKE HAVING TWINS
  • You’ve allowed complete strangers to hold onto your children so they’ll stop screaming
  • You’ve changed your baby in the trunk so you didn’t have to lug everyone back inside (this could almost be a redneck one as well…..)
  • You’ve never bought diapers, formula or baby food without a coupon
  • You have changed 25 diapers in a single day and you don’t work at a daycare or nursing home
  • You only go to stroller accessible stores and services
  • You’ve wanted to (but didn’t of course!) punch a singleton parent in the face for complaining about “how hard” it is with A newborn baby
  • You get stared at constantly when you go out in public and it’s in no relation to what you are doing or wearing
  • You’ve been asked extremely inappropriate questions by complete strangers
  • You’ve breastfed 2 babies, at the same time and ate your lunch
  • You’ve fed 2 babies a bottle, at the same time, by yourself and ate your lunch
  • You can carry 2 bucket car seats, a diaper bag, a bottle bag and your purse all at the same time
  • You’ve had to brush your teeth and yell at your kids to stay out of the bathroom garbage and stop chewing on your hairspray, at the SAME TIME
  • You’ve painted your infant’s toenails so you can tell them apart from their sibling
  • You’ve said the statement “Yes, they’re twins” at least a thousand times
  • You’ve laughed, you’ve cried, you’ve almost thrown them out on the lawn
