Every morning I pack up my 2 kids and take them for a walk with the dog.  This time of year it involves coats, snowpants, hats, mitts, scarves and boots.  As I make my way around town with my double stroller and 100lb dog, most people smile, some say hello and others say "you must have your hands full?!".  The other day, I had the strangest comment. "Twins?" asked a woman as she walked past us.  No - I said.

My kids are 22 months apart.  They do look a lot alike, but twins? I may know why this particular woman jumped to that conclusion.  Occasionally, sometimes, once in a while, I will put my son in a one piece hot pink snow suit!  Embarrassed!  Cringing!  Hiding in shame! Is that cruel?  He has a handsome, blue 2 piece.  But lets be real - it can be a pain to put a 2 piece snowsuit on a 14 month old.

The first time I pulled out that pink snowsuit, I hesitated, but thought what's the harm in trying it.  It was in the evening and dark and no one could tell - right?  I promised myself I would only do it that one time.  But that one-time experiment led to another evening walk, and another and another.  And now I find myself grabbing for the pink snowsuit everyday, twice a day, just to get through the walk.  It has become a real problem - to the point that people stop and comment on my 2 girls and well - ask if they are twins. 

You tell me - do they look like twins?
