12 Merits of Having Twins
It is usually the case that moms-to-be feel horrified when they find out they’re expecting twins. I decided to spot some of the merits of having twins for a change!
1- Despite being double the hassle (or slightly more than double), they are also double the fun. You end up with two tiny funny creatures at home who, more often than not, are nothing alike.
2- They do get jealous from each other; when one is not eating and finds the other one eating, he tends to imitate him/her.
3- Having twins make you a real multitasker who’s more efficient with everything.
4- They always have company even if alone with you at home because they always have each other.
5- It’s often said that they sleep better because they don’t feel alone in their rooms.
6- Everyone volunteers to give a helping hand because caring for twins sounds scary; you find people feeling for you all the time.
7- The dad has to get involved in many tasks when he is a father of twins.
8- If they are the same gender, they can just share everything, especially toys (For me because they are a boy and a girl, they are worlds apart).
9- In school, it’s nice when they get to study the same things; they can even study together.
10- You won’t have to worry about the age gap between children; you had both in one shot.
11- You go through all the early months hassles only once. I can’t even imagine that if I had one baby I would now be considering a second one.
12- You have double the love, double the kisses and hugs. I love it when they compete for my hugs and kisses.
