Maybe it's the milk prices.........

I mean it's the only thing that I can think of. I don't generally buy milk since neither J nor I drink the stuff but I have heard that the cost of a gallon of milk has gone up. So maybe - just maybe all of those who were once milk drinkers but can no longer afford to indulge in the white, thick grossness are low on calcium. And maybe this calcium deficiency is somehow interfering with their nerve conduction causing them to say outrageous things and ask even more outrageous questions when they come in contact with me and BOB when we are out with E squared........ I mean do YOU have any ideas. I can't think of another explanation for the recent rash of stupidness we have encountered this week.
Remember kidnapper van lady. You know the one with the missing tooth off centered to the left. Asking me if "they were mine". Well -- today we were sitting in my favorite little mexican restaurant downtown (no I wasn't eating fattening mexican food. remember I am a fat baby mama). It was hot outside and I was having a nice cold diet coke while E squared finished up a little cat nap. So this developmentally delayed dude (must remain politically correct even though the guy was clearly retarded as evidenced by this convo) came over with his mouth still full of tortilla chips. He proceeds to talk (have you ever tried to whistle with saltines in your mouth)(as a joke -- not when you actually planned to talk to another person) - spraying his disgusting half chewed chips around. I mean thank goodness BOB was there -- with his oversized sun shades......protecting E squared. So here goes -- oh wait -- the best part. He was wearing electric blue socks with 1 orange and 1 lime green CROC......... no joke! Ok now -- so here goes........
electric croc guy: oh, twins!? (no big deal, very common question)(right?)
me: yeah. Two little girls. (didn't even leave room for the obligatory a boy and a girl?)
electric croc guy: my so and so's (some family member -- I don't remember because frankly I didn't give a croc) brothers sisters neighbor (or whatever) had twins and they were born a half a second apart.
me: WOW -- that's one fast doctor. (what else was I supposed to say -- can ANYTHING be done a half a damn second apart. Let alone birth children)
electric croc guy: so are you still with their dad? (what the hell kind of question is that? Is it too much to think that a woman can push her twin babies around downtown on a Saturday and still be married?) But like I said the guy must have been retarded. Right? NO NO NO I am not making fun of developmentaly delayed folks -- he wasn't REALLY. He was weird though.
Now the good stuff............ MUNCHKINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is Edie doing her "belly pose". She loves to roll over from her back to her belly and spends quite a bit of time doing so. A typical day consists of her rolling over, playing and yelling for about 1 minute, screaming and crying, me rolling her back, her immediately rolling back over........... you get the picture. 128 times / day. But it's cute and she has fun........

Here is Ella in her bathrobe.........
Here is Ella sitting. We don't usually wear our pants that high -- not sure what happened.
My name is Edie and I'm a sweetie............
My name is Ella Grace and I've got a pretty face..............
rolling eventually takes it's toll............
Edie and her miniskirt..........
Ella and her blue jeaned baby bottom

I just love looking at pictures of your girls. It gives me so much hope that I will be able to survive this. They are precious!

Perhaps there is a sticker on BOB that you forgot to remove when you got it? It might say something about crazy a-s strangers, please flood me with annoying and outrageous comments? Ewww, tortilla chips flying and crazy shoes and socks....I'm shuddering over here at the thought. I am so sorry sweetie that you had to endure that. Are you recovered from any of it yet? That may take some time I'm afraid. And the fact that he did that to poor mexican food as well- it's my favorite food and shouldn't be messed with either!

Happier thoughts - E squared looked adorable! Such perfect facial features on both the girls - their skin is just perfect and so delicate looking. I loved the flipping over again and again- baby dancing in the making? Perhaps. The bath robe is adorable too, I want a grown up sized one to match, LOL! Hope you don't have too many other encounters. One mom can only take so much - if this continues I may have to lift my couch arrest and come be your mean arse body guard!

Freakin weirdos. I always get asked if Brooklyn was a preemie when people find out how old she is. Some lady told me like 2 months ago that I needed to stick Brooklyn "back up in there" so she could "cook a little longer." WTF. Gross. I don't know where people's boundaries are.

Adorable pics by the way. And I need to know where to get the personalized binkies!

I swear people are so retarded. I love how he somehow questions your relationship while you have twin babies. Who ARE these people?

I just love your blog, it cracks me up! Sara-love your comment. As my husband would say, "what a smack!" Thanks for the daily lighthearted humor.

This is one of those stories I will just have to tell! There was this twin mom who's blog I read...

They are looking cute, cute, cute!

To answer your question about how I tell the dudes apart...Finn's head is slightly more alongated, whereas Reid's in more circular. Also, Reid has two tiny, tiny, tiny birthmarks on this side of his face. When they were itty bitty, I could tell which kid was which by the color of their thumb nail. Reid's was On the Town Red (by Revlon). :)

But yes, they are often called "Fried" and "Refinn".
