Oh hello HDYDI readers! It’s me again LauraC.
Remember how I stopped writing for HDYDI when my twin boys turned 3 because we didn’t have much twinny stuff? Well do I have a story for you!
Saturday I took my boys (almost 4.5) to a local park. As we were walking along a greenway, a woman came up behind us and asked the boys how old they were. They both said four and her eyes sparkled with that familiar gleam when she realized they were twins. She started remarking on their differences. One brown hair and one blond hair! One brown eyes and one blue eyes! How different the twins are!
Then she said right to Nate, “You are so beautiful, the face of an angel!” and she rubbed his hair.
Then she kept right on going.
Mama BearC wanted to claw at her back and yell, “WTF lady, you’re going to compliment one twin IN FRONT OF THE OTHER twin and then walk on by? Did you even you see Alex’s sad, hurt little face?”
Instead I just told the boys it was so nice this lady thought they were both such beautiful little angels.
Have you guys encountered this and what did you do?
