Hands Full

If you are a mother of twins you will know that you hear the comment "you must have your hands full" about 10 times a day (if you manage to leave the house). I always appreciate the concern and interest but let's face it, it can get old. Plus I never know how to respond other than to agree that it is hard but very worth it.  One of my girlfriends who is expecting twins (naturally, who knew that actually happened.....lol) just posted the best comeback on her facebook page.  I am totally going to steal it, she said when people tell her she is going to have her hands full she just responds "if you think my hands are full, you should see my heart"  I LOVE THIS!!!!!

  1. I don't have twins, but I do have an almost 3 year old and a 1 year old, and I get that line all the time, "you must have your hands full" I just say "it's better than being empty"

  3. Aw, that's cute. I always go with something along the lines of "double the trouble, double the fun!" as a response to most of those comments.

  4. Love! I'm amazed at all of the negative feedback I've gotten...even during the pregnancy! "Ewww...better you than me." Blah blah blah. I'm ecstatic to be blessed with twins...people are so annoying!

    1. I totally agree! I was 100% excited about it being twins so I just ignored it but what were they expecting me to say "yeah, my life is ruined".
