We’re all guilty of being fascinated by twins.
The 26 year old mum, who lives in Melbourne, posted the following image on Instagram, saying:
“…You get asked a series of questions/hear a series of statements EVERYTIME you go out. I know most people are coming from a great place and are just curious however many can be quite intrusive and after a while it’s just plain exhausting. And since I was heading into the city, I knew the questions would be coming thick and fast… but I chickened out on the train and took them off!”
The signs read:
YES, THEY ARE MINE.
YES, THEY ARE TWINS.
YES, BOTH GIRLS
NO, NOT IDENTICAL
YES, I KOW THEY LOOK ALIKE THOUGH.
YES, I’M SURE THEY AREN’T IDENTICAL
CONCEIVED BY F**CKING
BORN VIA C-SECTION
YOU HAVE TWINS IN YOUR FAMILY? “GREAT”
THEY DON’T RUN IN MY FAMIILY…UNTIL NOW
YES, MY HANDS ARE FULL (sometimes with 2 glasses of red wine)
YES, TRIPLETS WOULD BE HARDER
Annie says that she is frequently bombarded questions from people who are a little too curious about her twin daughters, Delphine and Cheska: “I’m so happy to talk but I don’t think people understand that it’s tiring being a mum of twins, or just multiple kids. We’re fighting the poo-feed-sleep-bath schedule and stopping to talk all the time interrupts the strict routine that we hold to just to keep our world turning,” Annie told The Daily Mail.
Take a look at Annie’s beautiful and fun children: (Post continues after gallery.)
On her blog, Uncanny Annie, Annie says that she got the idea after joking with other parents of twins about the questions they are always asked. Annie was brave enough to keep the signs on during her train trip into the city, but “chickened out” before while she was on the train
The Daily Mail says that Annie is vision impaired and so she spends a lot of her time catching public transport. When she is stopped in the street, it often disrupts her routine that keeps her steady.
