A blogger who got tired of answering questions about her twins placed some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) signs on her babies.
As Cosmopolitan shared, mom blogger Annie Nolan, 26, has been getting a lot of queries on her twins Delphi and Cheska so she posted a photo of the babies with the FAQ signs.
In the photo, one of the babies has a sign stating: “Yes, they are mine. Yes, they are twins. Yes, both girls. No, not identical. Yes, I know they look alike though. Yes, I’m sure they aren’t identical.”
While the other one has the sign: “Conceived by f*****g. Born via C-section. You have twins in your family? ‘Great.’ They don’t run in my family … until now. Yes, my hands are full (sometimes with 2 glasses of wine just to get through). Yes, triplets would be harder.”
“As a twin [twins’] mum, you get asked a series of questions/hear a series of statements EVERYTIME you go out,” Nolan captioned the photo, as posted by Bored Panda. “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…”
Of course the post was a joke.
“It was intended mostly for 4 [sic] specific friends who have twins, for a laugh. I could hardly predict the reaction it was going to have,” she posted, as reported by Daily Mail.
But not everyone saw the humor in the FAQ signs. ”If I had of known it was going to be this big, I wouldn’t of sworn,” Nolan said.
“This photo was staged. I did not actually walk them around like this. It was more “wouldn’t you love to do this somedays?” [sic] to parents of twins. Some agree, some don’t. That’s fine. I absolutely never meant to hurt a single soul with this photo. If you knew me, you would know that if I think the pet cat is upset with me, I can’t sleep! I am grateful for my children everyday,” she hit back to her critics.
She also told them that they have no idea how hard she prayed when her twins were brought to the intensive care. “The comments made by people who can’t conceive a child or have lost a child telling me I should ‘be happy that I even have kids’ really affected me.”
