Twin Life Hacks: Courtesy of Calvin and Abel

Having to share toys, attention and time is part of a twin’s life. Luckily, Calvin and Abel have also figured out some ways to use their Doublemint status to their advantage, and are happy to share them with you.

Bored of your toy? Spilled milk on your blankie? Sprint-crawl across the room and grab your brother’s!  Bonus: his cries will ensure you both get more attention.

Looking for a way to climb out of the bathtub? Wait until your mom is trying to diaper your brother after taking him out, and see how good she is at multitasking.

Sad because you threw your toothbrush on the ground and now regret the decision? Grab your brother’s! Sharing germs still counts as sharing.

Worried that mom will be lonely without your constant company? Nap in shifts!

Want to make anyone’s heart melt? Crack each other up, have a baby talk convo, or even better, snuggle or hold hands. (This will also totally take their minds off the hidden puddle of milk you poured out together.)

Works every time!

Works every time!
