“Wow, you have your hands full”



Have you ever heard “WOW, you have your hands full”?? Being a mother of a 5 year old boy and 2 year old boy/girl twins, I hear it ALL THE TIME. Here are 10 different ways to respond:

1. My hands are as full as my heart

2. Thank You

3. Not today, my oldest is in school

4. (cricket, cricket)…ignore the comments and keep walking

5. Smile, say nothing (keep walking)

6. God gives us what we can handle, though some days I think he hit the wrong house

7. I wouldn’t have it any other way

8. I’ve never heard that before (this comes out when I’m usually tired)

9. Yup, (insert sarcastic laugh and eye roll)

10. It’s not naptime yet, so we’re good

I think people feel they have to say something and it can be annoying. I love when people comment on how having twins is a blessing! The positive comments are a breath of fresh air and reminds that I am doing a great job as a mother!!!
