We just received out first nasty comment. *giggle*
No biggie...but since our negative Nancy had to comment, I guess I will clear up her question.
She asked and I quote:
So I just have to ask, why do you call your blog, "Life with Twins and Multiples"? Twins ARE multiples; whenever I hear someone mention "twins and multiples," to be honest it sounds like they don't know what they're talking about and think that "multiples" refers to triplets and higher.
Well that is an EASY question to answer!! This blog is written by several Moms.
Some of the Moms have Twins, some have Triplets, some have Quads. Not all have written yet, some are new, some have been with us for a while. Most of the posts are written by myself, a Twin Mom. However if this blog was solely written by me, I would not call it Life with Twins and Multiples. I'd come up with some other fancy schmancy name that recolved around my own Twins names most likely.
Since this blog is not all about my Twins and not all about Twins, I named it Life with Twins and Multiples, explaining that this blog is about Mothers and their lives with their Twins....or in some cases if the author has Triplets or Higher......Multiples.
Kind of almost a hybrid of a title in a way.
IN most cases, with the Mothers of Multiples that I know.....Triplets or higher order multiples are referered to as Multiples and usually Twins are just, well... Twins.
This is just how it is in my circle of Mom of Multiples friends.
anyhow thanks for asking, Nancy. :)
Some of our readers agree.....
I agree as a mom of Twins, I see moms with "Multiples" to be moms who had trips, quads, etc. whether it's the correct term or not it's like slang in the "multiples" world. In fact nurses in the NICU used it the same way as well. Not to mention can be used to describe a mom with SETS of twins. I thought all moms of multiples knew that? ;)
I've written a couple of times (one of my resolutions is to try to write more now that my kids are older!) but I also don't think of my twins as 'multiples', I've always associated that with trips and up. Technically I know that isn't correct, but "Twins and Multiples" takes up a lot less space and rolls off the tongue much easier than the title "Twins and HIGHER ORDER Multiples". :-)
