I found this many moons ago on a blog written in response of things not to say to a twin parent. It is spot on and made me laugh, and I thought it was worthy of sharing. The original post no longer seems to exist so I'm not sure who to credit this to. 

  1. Strength: Our constant lifting of heavy babies gives us superior muscle tone.
  2. Endurance: We can endure sleep deprivation comparable to special-forces in training.
  3. Speed: We can fly in and out of a baby’s bedroom at 2am like a flipping ninja. (You would too if you risked waking another screaming baby).
  4. Sense: Our sense of smell is heightened to that of a top police tracker dog, being able not only to spot a dirty nappy, but locating it to within 6 inches from the other side of the room.
  5. Humour: We laugh in the face of danger. (Mainly because we accept we can only tackle one danger at a time so the other one may as well be funny!).
  6. Hustling: We have more grey hair than you would expect for our age, which is disarming and helps us hustle.
  7. Gift of the Gab: We should all have PhD’s in Diplomacy and Negotiation (e.g. you get to pull the plug out tomorrow, the second hand shoes are magic, three divided by two is one each and one for me, etc)
  8. Emotional Resilience: We can do all of the above while simultaneously crying without even smudging our mascara. (We have no time for makeup).
  9. Lords of the Dance: We always have enough people for the hokey pokey.
  10. Brute Force: Our prams are bigger than your prams. Move over, we’re coming through whether it suits you or not!
What are your qualifications/special skills?
