Mom Of Twins Uses Hilarious Signs To Shut Down Strangers Who Ask Intrusive Questions

Australian mom of three Annie Nolan is causing quite a stir with her viral photo of her twin daughters.   Nolan, who has a blog called Uncanny Annie, shared a picture of her 2-year-old twins Delphia and Cheska with two very... informative signs.   The signs read: Yes, they are mine. Yes, they are twins Yes, both girls No, not identical Yes, I know they look alike though Yes, I’m sure they aren’t identical Conceived by f**ing Born via C-section You have twins in your family? “Great” They don’t run in my family … until now Yes, my hands are full (sometimes with 2 glasses of wine just to get through) Yes, triplets would be harder In her caption for the photo, Nolan says she wanted to leave the signs on the baby stroller when she took the girls into Melbourne last week but she removed them before they arrived. "As a twin mum, you get asked a series of questions/hear a series of statements EVERYTIME you go out," she wrote. I know most people are coming from a great place and are just curious however many can be quite intrusive and after a while it's just plain exhausting."  Following up in the comments section, the mom added that she always answers questions from strangers in public, but certain inquiries still shock her sometimes -- especially when they ask about IVF, fertility drugs and even if she considered aborting one of the fetuses. "Eighty percent of people are fantastic and the twent...

It’s hardly news that the gastrointestinal tract is important to human health: It transports food from the mouth to the stomach, converts it into absorbable nutrients and stored energy, and shuttles waste back out of the body. If you don’t properly nourish yourself, you don’t live. It’s that simple. But in recent years, scientists have discovered that the GI system has an even bigger, more complex job than previously appreciated. It’s been linked to numerous aspects of health that have seemingly nothing to do with digestion, from immunity to emotional stress to chronic illnesses, including can...
