I'm pretty sure that 97.43% of the time, what they're really wanting to know is if there were any fertility treatments involved. Gotta love nosy strangers.
I usually just smile and say, "they do now!" or "yeah, we do 5Ks and Half Marathons."
But really - Brian's Berrett Grandparents had a similar family dynamic many years ago!
This is Marjorie and Daryl, with 3 yr old Barbara and 1 yr old twins Bill & Brad.
As the story goes, Marjorie was told she wasn't having twins - just one big baby. But she told her doctor that she felt like there were two. He assured her she was wrong. But on birth-day, he ate those words!

I'm very grateful that MY surprise news occurred months before birth-day!
