He ain't heavy, he's my...wait, there's TWO!?

So, I saw this article about moms of twins on msnbc.com the other day.

Moms of twins may live longer, study says

Research suggests mothers of twins might be physically stronger

"Having two babies at a time is associated with a longer life, according to a new study. But that's not because doubling up on dirty diapers increases life span; instead, moms of twins are physically stronger in the first place."

Hmm. I don't think I was physically stronger in the first place.

But I know I'm sure as heck stronger in the after place.

Twins are freaking heavy.

They may be heavy...but I think the cuteness is a pretty good trade!

Amber said...

I saw that too! I kind of laughed - because I feel like a complete WIMP right about now as I moan about turning over or standing up. LOL.

what a gorgeous picture - and yes, twins are so heavy!

Mine have a new thing where they INSIST on both being carried at the same time. They tell me when I pick one up, "two babies... now!".

Okay then.

I totally agree- twins are freakin' heavy!! Even before they are born, and you are lugging your giant belly around. :)

And here I thought my twins were sending me to an early grave. Now that I think about it, though, my arms are pretty beefy . . . not to mention the rest of me. I shall blame my twin daughters.

Sarah said...

This is the most hilarious point made by a mom of twins EVER!
You are MOST DEFINITELY stronger than the rest of us! NO DOUBT!

Holly Ann said...

LOVED that article, I shared it on facebook and my twin mama friends loved it too!

I always knew we were awesome, not there is proof.

I heard a story about article and thought it was interesting! But, look at you super mom. I can barely hold our two girls...combined weight of about 70 lbs.

Yes, yes they are...

I wonder if this also applies to mothers of twins who had IVF...after all, we weren't technically slated to have twins...we had a bit of help.

Geez...now I have to go read the article!
