Why Being The Father of “Double Trouble” Bothers Me
One of the most common things that gets said when people see us or me out with the twins is something along the lines of 'oh, how cute, double trouble, haha.' I know they are just trying to be nice, but it really bothers me for some reason. They aren't trouble, sure there's two of them, but it's just the two words that rhyme and the small bit of judgement that comes with it that bothers me.
I know that raising two babies at once is difficult and that raising two toddlers will probably make me go grey faster than being the President, but in no ways are they trouble. Plus, I love a challenge. Our "double trouble" has made me a better person in five months then I can only imagine. Double the nappies, double the crying and double the dependency is easily outweighed by double the smiles, double the cuddles and double the amazing firsts that we get to witness, twice.
So no, they aren't double trouble, they are double happiness, double loveliness and double the pleasure. Those are the reason why I love having double trouble.
