Picture Heavy Leaving Las Vegas Vacation

Posted on Jul 21, 2008. 8 comments

I learned a lot during my "vacation" to Vegas.
1. My child does not react well to suddenly becoming one of a brood. And about the appropriateness of the Question, "Is it Naptime yet?"

Although I might prefer "Is it yarn time yet" or "Is it beer time yet."
2. I learned Beebo's Mama is a Super Pregnant Lady (with matching spit up repellent bullet proof bracelets) who is not foiled by the Sugar Plum Pooping Fairy.

3. Sometimes my child does resemble my side of the family, if only for short periods.

4. Having a Masters Degree Thesis over my head is great motivation for writing more knitting patterns.

5. See above

6 I like to call this one "YES THEY ARE TWINS."

7. I also learned from my brief visit just enough information about twins to make this venn diagram, which illustrates good and bad things to say to the Mom of twins. See? All those years of Physics and Mathematics did come in handy after all.

8. This is the face you get when you screech endlessly about baby boy twins the same age as a certain set of baby girl twins being pushed around in a tandem stroller. She does not care that those boy twins could be potential boyfriends some day far in the future. And she didn't think it would be funny to ask the boy twins Dad if his sons were twins, no matter how many times I said it sounded like a good idea.

    My sister called me long-distance, about 15 years ago, to say she was pregnant. With twins. (Identical boys, it turned out.) I told her I was jealous, and she exclaimed that our older sister had had the same reaction.

    welcome back!
    The thought of having twins scares me. I’m glad they don’t run in my family.

    Wow, that is a great picture that you got of me…LOL! So glad that you got to come to Vegas! Come back anytime, and next time we will rent a triplet stroller and dress Maya the same as the twins. It will be fun! :)
