Haven't read it. Looks interesting though. Let me know if it turns out to be worth buying! With the C's being ID I tend to worry about whether I am raising them to be two unique little people.
Never read it. I parent my twins as "twins" though. When they get old enough to do things their own way that will be fine, but for now they are twins and everything is the same/equal/fair/etc amongst them, even down to every last clothing item. And yes, my husband thinks I'm completely off using this tactic...
Never even heard of it, therefore never read it. I, unlike Gibson Twins, parent my id girls like sisters. I try hard not to buy identical outfits, however, grandma likes identical outfits, so the girls have a few. My mom would always take one child at a time to her house for the week. This gave my girls a chance to be alone with mommy (alone meaning without the other twin). The only thing I did do twin like was co-bed them. Even to this day they share a bed. They love sleeping together, but then again, they love sleeping with their brothers too. They just love being with their siblings. At school, they are in the same class. Since they go to a private school whose principal has twins, the school policy is to keep twins/siblings in the same class unless asked otherwise. I love having the same homework/project due dates/teacher/tests, it makes my life easier. Personally, I think individuality in twins is more of an issue with id twins than frat twins. Frat twins, for the most part, are easy for friends/others to tell apart. My girls are a different story, everyone asks how to tell them apart...and I tell them. The bigest issue my girls face is being called by their sisters name...but they let you know who they are.
Haven't read the book, but let me know if you do and if you think it is worthwhile!So, I was at the dr today and she thought it *could* be PUPPS, but usually that doesn't appear on the hands and I have a rash on both hands in addition to my abdomen/trunk. Her other thought was that it could be cholestasis of pregnancy, but we won't have results of blood work for that back for a week. Or, it could be something unrelated that has nothing to do with pregnancy or is just aggravated by it. She has me putting on hydrocortisone cream twice a day (which I've been doing and it does nothing) and now taking 50mg of Benadryl orally every 6 hours. Funny though, I just read somewhere that antihistamines shouldn't be used for cholestasis of pregnancy (and the site I was reading also said specifically not to use "Aveeno or Oatmeal bath"). Uggh!!! I think out of all of the discomforts I have, the itching is the worst!
I've never heard of the book.As a fraternal boy/girl twin myself I will tell you that a little more individuality would have been nice growing up. It sucked to share soooooo much with my brother. And of course everyone referred to us as "The twins". We were also so close that we grew up having issues making friends. We didn't know how to properly socialize and that made my first day of kindergarten (not with my brother) very difficult.
