I actually do have a twin. A twin brother. I think that having a twin brother was easier than it would've been to have a twin sister. Less competition, and comparisons between us as siblings/twins. It was wonderful having someone always around. We started school together, switched schools, graduated, worked, etc. together. It was always comforting to have someone with me especially when starting something new. My brother and I weren't all together that close, as some twins are, we are more like siblings, in my opinion. But I'm sure deep down we share a closer bond than I realize.
In a weird twist, I just gave birth to twins as well. I couldn't be happier and more excited to have twins! I have two girls, however, so it'll be interesting to watch the difference. They aren't identical however. So far, it's been awesome having twins. They are so much fun and such great babies. I think twins are great.
