Would you choose to have twins?
October 17, 2013 § 17 Comments
As I sit here with my dissertation proposal powerpoint slides in front of me, fretting over my preparedness for my 4pm meeting with my committee, I moseyed on over to one of the twin forums I sometimes peek at when I am in desperate need for a distraction.
This was the first thing I saw:
I thought oh, nice! a feel good find! fully expecting to be hit with positivity and love and reassurance.
Out of 22 responses, only THREE twin moms said they would choose to have twins if they had a choice.
Of course, they all say that they love their children and they wouldn’t change their situation now, but had they known what they were getting into and had they had an option, they would not have picked the box with two balloons.
Um. Not exactly the positive, mindless web-surfing I was hoping for. Google strikes again. Ouch.
