    Twins are tough to raise! I have a twin brother who was born at normal weight. However, I was severely underweight at birth (even though we went full term), and have suffered a variety of ailments that might be birth-weight related.

    I've always appreciated having a twin, but it was definitely a challenge for my parents and siblings. At 4 years olds, we worked as a team and stacked chairs to climb up to the upper shelves of closets. Our messes were double-sized, and so were demands for attention.

    Being a twin is great, but raising twins is a huge commitment. I'm glad that fertility treatments are beginning to allow single births.

    I think twins are wonderful! I had twins when my first baby was 16 months old. The hardest part with my twins was the pregnancy and the first year or two. After they are potty trained, I am convinced that twins are easier than single births. They always have someone to play with. You can teach them everything at the same time. This was a great blessing for my children. If I could choose, I would have had more twins.
