We’ve all seen the funny twin-parent shirt that says, “You can’t scare me, I have twins.” Although that is usually the truth, in honor of Halloween, here at Twiniversity, we’ve decided to put fear in ALL twin parents. Hold your screams until the end, and check out the grossest thing your twins have put in their mouth!

Let’s talk about the dark side of twin parenting! The things our twins put in their mouth is definitely one of the grossest things kids do and parents have to witness. Look, there is no judgment here. We’ve all been there, especially when we are keeping an eye on two curious children! We recently asked our Twiniversity community, “What is the grossest thing your twins have put in their mouth?”

The answers do not disappoint! Just be prepared to laugh a lot and be completely grossed out a little!

The Grossest Thing Your Twins Have Put in Their Mouth


Poop is a magnet for all children. They seem to be able to find it, touch it, smear it, and play with it. And if you are really lucky, they might even put it in their mouths 🤢!

Water From Different Places

Water is water, right? Even if it is brown, right?

  • Probably not the worst, but most recent was my daughter who climbed up on a toddler chair to reach the kitchen sink, took apart the bottle-drying rack, and lapped the drained dish water out of the bottom while saying “yum yum yum”. 🤢😂 -jungblut.twins
