3. Royal treatment

Once you have a baby, people will treat you differently. Some will race ahead of you to open doors, some will allow you to cut in front of them in line, some will smile sweetly as you pass, and some will ask you questions about your baby or tell you about their kids. Either way, you win. Having two babies is hard work, you deserve to be treated like the royalty that you are.

4. Celebrity status

Having twins makes you an instant celebrity. Everywhere you go people will stop to ask you questions (Are they twins? Are they identical? Are they natural?) , give you double-looks, stare at both you and your babies, and treat you like a super hero. If you’ve always wanted to know what it feels like to be famous, this is your chance to shine!

5. Surprising adaptations

As a new parent, your body will shock you with its ability to adapt to new and extreme conditions. Your body will learn to function (and thrive) with a torturous dose of sleep deprivation. With an endless number of physically and emotionally demanding days ahead, you might feel like you are going to die if you don’t get some sleep. Don’t worry, you won’t. Your body will adapt and adjust, and you will make it through another day. Just make sure you get your hands on some coffee, and drink up.
