I don’t want to spend a lot of time recounting the past and instead want to focus on the future and the craziness that’s ahead for us. I’ve been occupying my time the past couple of months reading and researching everything I can get my hands on - trying to figure out where to put the babies, how we’re going to feed, bathe and clothe them, how S is going to adjust from 10-15 hours of sleep and if I’ll be able to close my mouth in time when I get peed on. As Tiffany knows from my spreadsheets that I sent her to track our cycles, organization and planning is something I love to do. I’m not naïve to think that because of all that, things will go smoothly when the babies come. But it does calm my nerves in some weird and sick way, so I continue to read all 2,000,000 reviews on Amazon for every baby product ever made until I start going cross-eyed and finally make myself go to bed! It’s totally normal to read 1,000 reviews on crib sheets, right???? I met my mentor from the Moms of Multiples group last week and she said she didn’t read one book before her twins came and just took everything in stride. I was definitely born without that gene… By the time we got done with lunch, I felt like I owed her $100 for her counseling session on how to chill out and for subjecting her to all the research she never wanted to know about. Oh well, I had great sweet potato fries!
Given how long it’s taken me to finally make an appearance, you’d think I’d have all kinds of things to say. It turns out, I’m not really sure what to say and I’m not that funny, so if you’re still actually reading this, I’m shocked! I’m happy to answer any questions that anyone has and I promise not to take 12 more months to come back. I don’t know much (other than excel and restaurants), but I do know that I am the luckiest person in the world to have found Tiffany. As you all know because you’ve been following her blog or know her personally, she’s truly an amazing person (and she has a damn good oven!). I don’t know what we did to deserve her, but having known Tiffany, Jason and their kids now for about a year and a half, I can’t imagine going through this with anyone else.
With that, I will leave you with the thought that goes through my head about every five minutes – HOLY CRAP, WE’RE HAVING TWINS!!!!!
