OK... so here's the deal. There is a lot I don't talk about here. My cool girl, stiletto wearing, wanna be rock star author awesomeness probably leads people to draw some conclusions about me--like that I am a total badass (true), as well as modest and retiring, (also true), but they might not see the you know, normal stuff.
And maybe I do that on purpose. But sometimes, that means big events can sometimes seem like they come out of the wild blue yonder...and well this is going to be one of those times.
I planned on originally having a baby rather stealthy next month. I had planned all this stuff for while I was gone, and it was going to be fun and awesome for both of us; except for my fun was going to involve a lot of pain and not sleeping. I'm into that. Your fun was going to be... like... actual fun.
Anyway, the reason I didn't plan on saying anything is because prior to the expected new baby I already had five young kids. I am not old enough to have spaced them out very far--mmkay? The thing is, some people have to make very wild assumptions about people with large families. The women of these families in particular; and while not knocking anyones choices I will never fit that mold with my studded leather pants, and neon green kitten heels. Five didn't seem like such a big number to me, and I am not sure why six did, but it did. So here was actually having a large family where as I felt people just said that before. *Wink* Not that I care what people off the street think, just telling you the thought process.
January 26th was the expected arrival date, so I was a little shocked when I actually went into labor December 28th--and even more shocked to have not one baby, but two babies December 29th. Yes, apparently this does happen in the modern world. Even to women who have had twins before--because I have had twins before and this was way different. To start with it was way too easy. This was my second set of boy/girl twins. The L&D nurse said I needed to go buy a lottery ticket.
And yes, we're all fine. Just a little shocked, and off schedule.
