When a Grown-up Twin Meets Your Twins

Joe Rawlinson by Joe Rawlinson - May 23, 2016

While out in public with your twins, many people will stop and ask you about your twins. This is natural and expected. Most often they will ask benign questions and then you part ways.

Twins Sitting

Occasionally, you will be stopped by someone who is a twin themselves.

You won’t get stupid questions about your twins from a twin. She will invariably state that she is a twin, too, or he will mention that he has a twin brother.

In fact, meeting a twin will immediately make you think of your twins in the other person’s shoes.

You’ll see ahead to the future and envision your twins as a cashier, or work colleague, or a father playing with his kid at the park.

You’ll wonder what you need to do to prepare your twins to reach that point in life (or to avoid it).

You’ll think, “I really can survive twins and they will survive me!”

Savor these chance meetings when you encounter a twin and make that brief connection with your twins. It is a glimpse of the future.
