When people see us with twins the first question we mostly get is, "are they twins?" when clearly the answer is yes or by an act of god I delivered two singleton boys really, really close in age. The second question is, "did you use fertility drugs?" Some people may see this as a more personal question, but they ask it. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt here because I know they are curious. It is ok to me. The third question we get, "do twins run in your family?" This question is not the easy yes or no. It is more of a yes and no answer. Yes we have another set of twins in the Scott family, but I am not a blood relative to my sister in law. As most of you know, Brett's brother Brian and wife Tina have twins, Titus and Genesis. This is an anomaly. I would like to give the boys some credit but I think that the women were the driving force on this one. Brett says that the reason we had twins was because of my competive nature. I don't want to admit it, but he may be right.
It is fun to have the two sets of twins. We can compare notes and share! Tina did some reminising of T and G as infants when E and B were born. I have some pictures.

Wow, I can't believe people ask if you used fertility drugs. That is like strangers touching your belly and stating that "you've dropped", what is it with pregnancy, birth, babies, and people's desire to know EVERYTHING? Weird.

The best part is when people stat asking you when/if you're gonna have more! It's like, yeah, if you want to come to my house and babysit for a week straight so I can catch up on sleep- me and hubby with think about it...
Also, please let my boobs, waist, and all else get back to normal first, thankyouverymuch!
People are so funny
