Shy and Shae

Who are Shy and Shae, you may wonder? They are cute 9 year old twin sisters we met on the playground this week. Sadie fell in love with them, and I loved how they entertained Sadie so I could relax (a little).



Here's how they approached me:

Them: "Are you going to have another baby?"

Me: "Yes, I am."

Them: "Oh ya, we could tell!"

{This actually made me feel happy because I think I actually look pregnant now instead of overweight}

Later....

Them: "How old are you?"

Me: "Well, I'm 25"

Them: "Wow...."

{A long pause and I hold my breath because I have NO CLUE what they're going to say....}

Them: "That's really young!"

Other one: "Ya, our mom is 38!"

{Happiness fills my inner being and I breath a sigh of relief!}

This was how we ended the conversation:

Them: "Um...where does your baby come out?"

{Loooooonnnnggggg pause by me as I contemplate how to gracefully change this line of questioning}

Them, again: "Like, does it come out your belly?"

Me (relieved): "Yes, sometimes it does come out of your belly when women have a c-section."

Them: "Oh, did you have a c-section?"

Me (worried, again): "Um, no I didn't."

Other sister (with a coy look): "I know what happened!"

At this point I figured I better get going! But they were quite funny and helpful for the short hour we spent together on the playground.
