Happy 7th!

There was a point in time when I wondered if I’d EVER become a mom. I prayed about it, I cried about it, and on April 19, 2003, I FINALLY got my wish. I can hardly even believe it, but my babies made their grand entrance to this crazy world seven years ago today. True to form, though, the stubborn little shorties had to be practically forced out of me, whether they liked it or not.

When a VERY pregnant woman is carrying not one but TWO babies in her massive torpedo belly and decides that it’s time for them to get the hell outta dodge, well, it’s best just to agree with every freaking thing she says and go along with the program. But when I started labor pains two days prior to my twins’ actual birthday, things were not really working according to my plans. My husband rushed me over to the hospital when my contractions were five minutes apart, only to be told that I wasn’t dilated enough. The nurse actually had the nerve to suggest that I waddle my Humpty Dumpty ass down the halls to try to kickstart things along a little more. I walked those damn hospital halls all friggin’ night long and about spit fire out my mouth when they sent me home at 6:00 the next morning to wait it out. If my husband would’ve let me steamroll the yahoo that discharged me, I would’ve done it in a heartbeat.

Nevertheless, though, I went home, bound and determined to get those kids out of me, somehow, someway. So, I dragged my husband out on a VERY long-winded walk throughout the neighborhood, and sure enough, my water broke thirty minutes after we got home. (Like I said earlier, you don’t mess with a determined mama of multiples!) We went back to the hospital, and eighteen pain-filled hours later, my world got a whole lot nucking futtier. We went from a family of two to a family of four just like that.

And seven years later, I could not be more proud to be the mama of such amazing kids. My daughter constantly amazes me with her kindness and ability to say “please” and “thank you” without even the slightest reminder, and my son blows me away when he holds doors open for complete strangers out in public. There’s not a day that goes by when they don’t make me laugh out loud or smile to myself. Sure they make me want to pull my arm hairs out one by one at times, but overall, I wouldn’t trade a single second with these incredible little beings. Happy 7th birthday to the two coolest people on the planet!!!!

      Thanks so much for the b-day wishes. I am really loving this age — I love that they still like hanging out with me & can really communicate with me. And watching them read a book all by themselves is absolutely one of the coolest things EVER! 🙂

    Happy 7th Birthday to your kiddos!

  10. Love, Love the picture of those two! Where does the time go..well on a day when I want to pull out my armpit hairs one by one I may not feel that way..but after just getting my kiddo’s 1 year portraits back and thinking my God she’s already changed ..I’m all gushy and think..where does the time go! The almost 7 YO- I don’t even know how she got to be such a little person over night!

    • mama2point0 says:

      Thank you for the compliments on the picture! I have NO idea where all the time went — it truly just disappears right before your eyes, doesn’t it? If you find a preservation bubble, please let me know where I can purchase one cause I’d bottle these 2 up forever if I could.

  11. Happy Happy Birthday!!! Love it!

  12. Abby says:

    That is the cutest picture EVER. Happy b-day to your 2 sweeties!

  13. Kris says:

    Have you finished vacuuming up after the birthday celebration? Hope it was AWESOME!
    Happy Birthday to all of you.

    • mama2point0 says:

      Thank you! And actually, I still haven’t vacuumed after all the festivities! Tomorrow, though, I will be sucking the hell out of the floor — look out dust bunnies, I’m comin’ for ya! 🙂

    Happy birthday to the Nucking Futs-lets. And a CabSav for NF Mama. Congrats to you all.

    • mama2point0 says:

      Thanks, mama! It’s unbelievable that it’s been 7 years since I first met these amazing kids! Cheers to that CabSav too! 😉

    What a great photo .. Congratulations and happy Birth-day 🙂 🙂 they are really cute.

    • mama2point0 says:

      Thank you! That was an impromptu photo that was arranged on the foot of my hospital bed the day of their birth by the 2 doting grandmas. 🙂

  16. Erin says:

    I always enjoy connecting with other moms of twins/multiples. My girls are nearly 4 1/2. I love the black and white photo. Happy birthday to them, and congratulations to you, beautiful mama! You’ve made it!

    • mama2point0 says:

      Thank you! It’s so hard to believe that they are 7! Time has seriously just flown by. Your girls are at my favorite age right now — I absolutely LOVED the age of 4. So incredibly sweet! I wish I could put them in a bubble so they never grow into hormonal teenagers who want nothing to do w/me. That’s gonna break my heart. 🙁

  17. oh my lord. I can’t believe they sent you home when you were carrying twins.

    What a bunch of dumbasses.

    Honestly, as far as we have come with multiples, I really don’t think the medical community have a good grip on things.

    That baby pic makes me want to be pregnant—for about 30 seconds 🙂
