Even in the age of IVF multiple births twins are still a curiosity. People have romantic notions about closeness and sharing and private languages and reading each other's thoughts. Even when they are one boy and one girl people will still comment 'oh, they don't look very alike', without understanding anything about the nature of twins. But I have them too. I don't wonder if my older son misses my younger daughter, but I wonder if the twins miss each other. I want there to be a bond between them. But they are more concerned with getting on with life.
