Vivi and I had two memorable conversations this morning. The first was while she was standing on our loveseat and throwing her play food onto our other couch. We were yelling between a couple of rooms.

Vivi: Mama, come watch me throw my ice cream real hard.
Me: Just a minute V, I have to use the potty.
Vivi: Mooooooom, are you going pee or poop?
Me: I'm going pee. I'll be right out.
Vivi: Do you want your privacy?
Me: Yes, please.

10 seconds of silence...

Vivi: Mooooooom, are you sure you going only pee?
Me: Yes!

By the time I got out of the bathroom a whole 20 seconds after I first went in, she was done throwing the food and was camped outside the bathroom door wanting to know if I had washed my hands. The irony of all this is that we have these conversations ten times a day except I am usually the inquisitor. I think I shall give her more space in the future now that I realize how truly annoying the questioning is!

Our second conversation was while I was cutting vegetables for soup and she was eating them.

Vivi: Hey mom, I love you.
Me: Oh Vivi, I love you too... more than all the stars in the sky.
Vivi: Mom, I love you more than two whole thing clementines.

In our world, that is WAY better than all the stars in the sky!


  1. What a sweetheart! Happy New Year! How many months pregnant are you? Have they told you yet that twins develop more quickly than singletons, so they are considered "ready" 2 - 4 weeks earlier than the 40 weeks which is the standard? I just thought of that as a good fact to know so that you can be prepared. I hope you already knew this, so my information-sharing isn't causing a panic! Anyway, hope your pregnancy is going well!

  2. Thanks! I'm just starting my 31st week and still feeling really good so I'm optimistic that I can go until 36 weeks, if not longer. My due date is March 9 but we are hoping to have everything together and ready by mid-February. I think they'll be here before I know it-- I'm both excited AND nervous!

    Oh, and thanks for the Dr. Luke book recommendation. It's been really helpful!
