Luckily They Have A Short Attention Span

So, our big cross-country journey sans small boys went off without a hitch. The boys stayed perfectly on schedule and were spoiled with attention from grandma and great-grandparents. This morning, I left them playing on the floor while I made their breakfast and I got a look like “Where do you think you’re going missy?” Sorry buds, you’re on your own now.

The thing I was most worried about was either them totally being confused why we were suddenly not there anymore or completly forgetting who we were. I know, how can I be worred about both things happening–they’re total opposites, but that’s how I roll. Worrywart central. However, a good friend said “They won’t know how much they missed you until you get back,” and I think those were wise and true words.

A few newsworthy developments:

1) The lower right incisor is both visible and very sharp in both boys.

2) We set a new record in bib usage yesterday–12. That’s pretty darn impressive when their mouths are oh so small.

3) We actually made it into the zoo, instead of just the parking lot. The boys couldn’t give a fig about the animals (although that may have had more to do with the fact they couldn’t see many of them), but we stayed about 2.5 hours with no major meltdowns. Andy demanded a ride in the Ergo carrier, and both fell asleep as we walked out.  I bought us a membership, so I guess we’re going back.

4) Adam and I indulged our inner Gil Grissom (from CSI) and did a DNA test on the boys.  The number one question that I get is if they’re identical, and it was always weird to say “Well, we don’t know,” which then turns into a long conversation about how twins appear. Well, now I can just say identical and be done with it. Hooray.  And this again proves I am consistently a winner in the medical lottery. Nothing is never “normal” for me!

    Oh cool for identicals! Ours are too. I hate explaining the whole identical vs. fraternal genetics component.
