Here are some things people like to say to us:
"You're so lucky you had the twins first, because by the time the next baby comes it will be so easy!"
or "You're lucky to have the twins first, because now you don't know how easy just one baby is!"
Are we stupid?
I think that we, if anyone, understand how easy one baby is.
YOU, who have only ever had one baby at a time, do not know how easy it is.
Late one night, as we fed and changed and burped the twins Travis said "Oh my gosh, one baby would be a piece of cake. We could take turns getting up. We could maybe even get five hours of sleep in a row!"
And I'm pretty sure things aren't going to be completely smooth sailing once baby number three comes along, because I'll still have twins. They will still need to be taken care of.
They will probably only be a few years old, and toddlers and children are pretty needy, too.
Oh, and yesterday our brother-in-law said that we don't understand how easy disposable diapers are. We can't possibly understand, because we use cloth diapers, the convenience of being able to take the diaper off and just throw it away.
Well, we did use them for 2 months.
And we still use them at night, or when we go anywhere.
So again, I'm pretty sure we understand even better than he does.
