No..no they are not.
I'm so sick of that comment.
Any time we go somewhere (me and the boys) this is how it goes.
Question #1 - Are they twins?
Answer - (Rolling Eyes) What to you think? Well...I really don't say that and I really don't roll my eyes. I just say, "Why yes, yes they are!" "You are SOOOO observant!"
Question #2 - How old are they?
Answer - They are 17 months old. (Never mind getting into the whole "they are 15 months adjusted age because they were 9 weeks premature blah blah blah.)
Question #3 - (more of a question/comment) Wow! They MUST be running ALL over the place!!!
Answer - Nope, not yet. (as I am feeling guilty inside - feeling like I have to explain myself)
Comment - Oh.........(long pause).......well that's ok. Babies take their time. They will walk when the are ready.
I'm SO OVER this conversation I have EVERY SINGLE time we go somewhere in public.
I know I know, it's ok that they aren't walking yet.
This is my Public Service Announcement to all people that make comments to other moms about their children:
Don't make ANY assumptions!
