Last week I caught up with a college friend who I haven’t seen in a long time. Her daughter is the same age as my boys and we were commiserating over toddler insanity. One of the first questions she asked was whether my boys truly have a secret twin language.
My first snarky thought was – if it’s a secret twin language, how would I know about it if I’m not a twin myself? Instead I answered that I’ve never seen any evidence of a twin language with my boys. In 2 1/2 years, I’ve gotten inappropriate questions, crazy questions, and standard questions, but never that question.
So it made me wonder – has anyone experienced twin language first-hand? And how often do multiple parents get asked this question?
