Two For One Special

God has a way of being really funny.

My husband and I wanted a child and I thought we would have one maybe two. King had always wanted children and loves babies and kids.
When I became pregnant King was so happy.  It was wonderful to see how a man who is normally a happy person to begin with became even more happy.

I felt funny.  Strange dreams and weird cravings.  I didn't want to alarm King.  I went to have a sonogram to make sure that everything was OK, it was time to have one done anyway.  My doctor is a good friend and went with me.  Goop applied and the technician started the machine.  I'm looking at the screen and I said, that looks like, . . . two? The technician said yes, there are two little ones.  My doctor squeezed my hand because apparently I had turned pale at my discovery.  She smiled and asked me if I was OK.  I looked at her and asked if this was a real and true picture of my belly.  The technician looked at me and nodded and then looked at my doctor and nodded.  The technician said that she would take several pictures for me to take home with me.  I'm still looking pale and my doctor asked me if I was OK again.  I said, I suppose so.  I'm going to be a mother. . . to twins. 

Shock. Two. Not one but two.

I took the pictures the technician gave me and left.  I got in my car to go home.  I put my purse on the floor and put the pictures on the seat.  For some reason I turned around and looked in the backseat.  It dawned on me that I would need two car seats and two of every single thing that had to do with a baby.  I got out of the car and opened the back door and got in.  I sat in the back seat and just thought about how different our lives were going to be with two children.  I cried.  It wasn't bad just shocking and unexpected.  I stopped crying, opened the back door and got out.  I opened the driver's side door and got in.  I dried my eyes.  I sat there for a while.  I looked back into the backseat and smiled.

I drove home.

King was looking at stroller reviews and I told him that I needed to talk to him about the baby.  He could see that I looked really serious and asked me if everything was OK.  I told him yes and that I had a sonogram to make sure.  I think that worried him because I knew that he wanted to go with me when I had one done.  I just didn't want him to be there if I was told something that wasn't good news. I asked him about his research into the world of strollers and told him that we would need two.  He nodded in agreement and said yes, there should be one for my car and for his car.  I told him no.  That we would need a double stroller.  He looked at me confused.  I told him that I am pregnant with twins.

He just looked at me stunned. He kept saying really?! Really?! and then I showed him the sonogram. That is when he jumped up and down. He hugged me. He ran to the front door opened it and yelled at the top of us lungs, "I'm going to be the Father of Twins." Then he hugged me again and kissed me. You'd think I told him that we had won the lottery. He kept kissing me and my tummy saying hello to the babies.

Thankfully our house is set way back on our property.  I would hate to know that somebody in neighborhood thought that King had gone mad.

Our double blessing is due in February.

What a great story!!! I can just picture King hopping up and down and you looking at him wondering if he'd be ok lol

I'm so looking forward to hearing about the new soon to be here arrivals. Take care and remember to take care of yourselves and don't forget to find some you time as well.

Thank you Jacee.

Now thats great news , This story tells me that king had more amo than he thought Wilde .

There will be double cribs in the nursery .

Paschar, I was talking to some friends on the phone that live out of the country. They were at our wedding but didn't know that I am pregnant. I told them that not only was King NOT shooting blanks but he got me with both barrels.

Come to think of it there is a double barrel shotgun , Made by Savage 12GA bore for double ott buck ;-) , King will be a happy Papa .


This is such a sweet story Wilde. You should definitely put it in the baby albums. Congrats Mommy and Daddy. :)

Thank you Kat. It is already there.

Oh Wilde, how wonderful!! Congratulations to you both! What a blessing--twins!! *tears of joy on cheeks* I can't think of two better parents than you and King: what fortunate children! How marvelous for you all. I spent several years as a nanny for a set of boy/girl twins, and I never enjoyed anything else that much. When it comes down to it, twins are more work than one--but not twice as much--and at least ten times the joy and love. God bless you all.

Thank you Ms. Footies. We are starting the process of interviewing nurses next week. After the first year we will probably go with a full-time, live-in nanny. Since the children will not have a grandmother, we are hoping to find someone who is older with experience.

Thank you Sugar. We are going to be looking for a nanny and a nurse for our little ones. They will be a handful and we have to get some sleep in order to provide for them.

your story brings back memories of my best friend. She two had twins...however she didn't find out until 4 days before they were born. When she told me the news I too laughed with the joy of the whole idea of it, and she cried. Her house was tiny and they were a one income family...the tiny nursery was already set up for one. She had beautiful baby boys who were identical enough to drive me crazy for years trying to figure out who was who. These guys were all boy and kept their mother hopping. Like most twins they were always blaming something on the other one. Life is never ever dull with twins. Today they are both married with children of their own. Wonderful twin boys who grew into wonderful twin men. Oh and the bond between them is unseverable.

Beautiful.. You have won the lottery. What blessings you have received. I am so happy for the two of you. May the Blessings keep flowing <3

Thank you WW.

I would have paid MONEY to see his face when you clarified the situation. GOOD MONEY!

Dumbstruck. Ruby. I was truly dumbstruck.

I can't even fathom! ;-)

It was something to see. I have never seen King so excited.

I didn't care who heard me yell. I want the world to know that you have made me the happiest man on the planet.
