I belong to a Mothers of Multiples group, which for a nominal fee gives me the opportunity to sell things at their semi-annual sales and to attend various functions of a fun and/or useful nature. I don’t go to many of the regular meetings, though, and today I figured out why:
In my “regular” group of mommy friends, I can ALWAYS play the twin card. Some moms have the infertility card or the miscarriage card or the special needs card, but I am the only one with multiples. We really don’t compete — it’s a supportive group — but like moms everywhere we are all busy, and when we need to vent about our busy-ness we each have our own unique burden that the others cannot imagine.
In the MOMs club, though, everyone starts from the basis of multiples, and then many of them have dealt with infertility, etc. in addition to having multiples. I don’t like going to the meetings because with my uneventful pregnancies and healthy children, no one feels sorry for me.
What is wrong with me?!
