Although the twins are not quite 6 months old, I talk to them constantly. I love the way their eyes light up and they smile it just hearing my voice. Yes, I know they don’t understand a word, but we have long unreciprocated conversations nevertheless!
So… what kind of things do I find myself saying to twins, that I didn’t say with my singleton?
“One of you smells!”
“Girls, Stop eating each other!”
“Look it’s not fair to be sick in each others hair!”
“LET GO OF HER HAIR!”
“Well if you put your hand in her mouth, you can’t expect her not to bite you!”
“That’s not your foot!”
“Whoops wrong baby!”
Obviously there are more and I expect there will be many more twin-specific rhetoric conversations yet to come! I’ll post some more soon!
You’ve got a bottle yourself, why do you nick your brothers? Don’t just crawl over your brother as if he wasn’t there? Why did you have to slap your brother, he was just about to drift off to sleep? and quite a few more! 🙂

Aww I bet it’s every bit as rewarding as it is challenging. Are your grandparents twins? Did it skip a generation for you? My OH’s grandparents are so I might be joining the multiple brigade soon x

are you starting to call them the wrong name yet?
I am an identical twin, growing up we used to laugh at my mum when she was cross with one of us or she was mega busy she used to shout the others name!! and not even realise until the wrong twin answered/turned up and then it would send us all into fits of giggles.

It is a great idea to keep a record of mad things you say to your kids. I found myself saying to my monkey this week “we don’t climb in the dishwasher” and immediately thought to myself that it wasn’t a sentence I ever thought I was going to need! I just popped over to check out your lovely blog from Blog Your Own Blog Horn 😀
