My Super Power

I ran across this article the other day about mothers of twins living longer than singleton mommies.  (This based on a study of Utah women from the 1800s.)  Researchers believe this could be due to twin moms being "stronger in the first place."  Having twins allows me to pass on my oh-so-amazingly-strong genetics at twice the normal rate.

I had to laugh.  Strong?  Me? 

You should have seen me pregnant with those little rug rats.  I still maintain that my body was not meant to carry two babies at once.  I was a miserable, painful and whiny mess.

I suppose I do have rather developed biceps.  Now, anyhow.  I mean, have you seen my twins?  Try carrying those kids around for any length of time.

Watch out world.  Mothers of twins (and their over-developed biceps) are on the loose.

Ha ha ha ha! I think you're right about the biceps though.

I think most mothers have stong arms as we spend a lot of time carrying our little darlings around. My sister has twins and she is one of the strongest women I know. My grandmother had twins and she was anything but strong...........
