Twins?

We've been asked recently - on more than one occasion - if Lumpyhead and Lula are twins. It happens when it's not obvious that Lumpyhead is a head taller than Lula - like when one is being carried or they're both sitting down. Because Lula's head is gigantic and Lumpyhead is so skinny his arms are the same circumference as his sister's, I can understand the confusion. And if you can't hear that Lumpyhead speaks in full sentences and Lula only has a few intelligible words, or you don't notice that Lula is still a BABY for heaven's sake. . .
um, right. Fine. They might look like twins.

But then, doesn't everyone wearing Small Paul pajamas look alike?

You must hang out with a lot of people who smoke a lot of crack.

Is that some kind of crazy all-Hapa-kids-look-alike bullshit?

Anyone with functioning eyes can see that he has progressed to the "little boy" face and she still has the "baby" face.

It ain't rocket science, y'all.

Most people are just assholes who speak without thinking.

I hope no one has asked you if you are expecting twins as the next question.

Middle and Baby are 12-1/2 months apart. I get asked ALL THE TIME if they're twins. Despite the fact that Middle is a head taller than Baby.

So why are people so surprised when I tell them my kids ARE twins?
