It's hard to be a lone pamphleteer with a house full of babies. Because I spent all of 2010 either pregnant or mothering twins, I have slacked off on my blogging. If ever there was a good excuse for abandoning a fun but fruitless activity like blogging, it's twins.
Having twins, in fact, are a good excuse for many human failings.
"Oh, yes, you need to get me into the OR right now. I'm having twins."
"Excuse me, can I slip by you? I know this stroller's huge but I have twins."
"Sorry we're so late. Twins!"
In the future I see them being blamed for lots more failings ("Who has time for makeup with twins?") but I'd like to keep the scapegoating to a minimum. After all, I wouldn't want them to get a complex or something. Twins are complex enough. Though I am likely to continue using my favorite line on parents of singletons:
"So what do you do with all your free time?"
