The greatest sound in the world: your child saying mama.
The most annoying sound in the world: maaaaadadadadada. Followed with daddy dada daddy.
Don’t these babies know that I literally could have died while bringing them into this world?! Of course, my pregnancy was quite unremarkable considering I was carrying twins. And to be quite honest, labor was the easiest part. (This is the time where you are completely justified in calling me a bitch) So, I guess death, in my case is a bit dramatic.
Still it’s the principal, I COULD have died. And they have the nerve to say daddy first. Then, attempt mommy but finish with d.a.d.d.y. damnit.
Having twins is expensive. It is really expensive. Example: On Tuesday I received a shipment from diapers.com. It included a box of 156 diapers and 600 wipes. I used the many promo codes and was quite proud of myself for saving close to twenty dollars. Tonight I realized, I need to reorder. Reorder 156 diapers. Apparently, my children poop A LOT. I also realized that my children are difficult.
As I was researching the site for the best deal, I had to veto any generic brand because my children are difficult. There is a significant savings if you buy the generic however, my children will develop a diaper rash from anything cheap that touches their little butts. See, difficult. They unfortunately get this from me. I have an aversion to anything cheap. Actually, not me, my skin. Which made me think, what other awful traits are they going to inherit from me?
Impulsive- I have gotten myself into more trouble being impulsive. Now with that said, I have also done some really great things impulsively. Example: I married my husband after three and a half weeks of knowing him. In Vegas no less. Best thing I have ever done. For every good example, I have ten really bad reasons why being impulsive is not a trait I want to pass along.
Money management skills or rather lack of- I try really hard to be on top of our money and it’s comings and goings. I just don’t have the brain for it. I try, and fail every month. Why I cannot remember to pay certain bills on time (the same time every month) is beyond me. I don’t go on shopping sprees or wild girls weekends but for some reason we can’t seem to save more than five dollars a month. It is so frustrating.
My addictive personality This is a hard one to admit, mainly because I know it’s true. Before I got pregnant I discovered Redbull. It was the first drink I had when I left the hospital after giving birth. I have had a Redbull every day since then. And not those little eight ounce shots, no I found a twenty ounce can. Jackpot!! Thank god, I never tried doing drugs. I would have been the worst junkie ever. But I would have been a junkie. I pray the boys take after their father with this.
Holding grudges- I have a real problem with cutting a person off and never speaking to them again. Ever. To add I tend to make it quite clear that they will never see or hear me again. Forgot I exist because I already forgot about you. With this particular trait also comes trust issues. I hope the boys always find the silver lining in every cloud. I truly hope they lead with their hearts and guts. I don’t want them waiting for disappointment. Disappointment is a part of life however, I hope they can look at the positive side instead of the negative.
So basically I hope they turn out like their father. Wow, this post really depressed me. Damn it where is my Redbull? I think I need some vodka in it now.
