John and I were chatting with the girls tonight before bed, and the conversation went something like this...
Me:"You guys are so great, I am so lucky to have two such sweet girls. I love you to pieces!"
Eden: "Yeah, you thought you were only going to have one baby and you got two!"
Me: "That's right, surprise!"
Eden: "Well, you could have had three...what's that called when you have three?"
Me: "It's called triplets."
Holland: "Yeah, I say that a lot. I wish you had triplets because then I would have someone to play with when Eden won't play with me."
Eden: "Yeah, we should have two sisters and a brother!"
Me: (Chuckling) "Yeah, that would have been GREAT..." (With sincerity) "But we were lucky to have just twins, because not everybody gets a twin sister to play with at all."
Eden: "Well, I think you should have two sisters and a brother BABIES!" (implying that I should have triplets NOW.) Thinks for a minute..." But then you would have to get married again."
Me: (Laughing) "You are right about that! I would have to get married again if I wanted to have triplets!"
Daddy: "But would you want Mom to get married again?"
Eden: (adamantly) "NO!"
Daddy: "Why not?"
Eden: (looking at me) "Because you fell in love with HIM."
Me: "You are right. I am in love with him."
Both girls smile happily.
Me: "Why do you think I fell in love with him?"
Eden: "Because he is really cute."
Holland: "Because he is HOT."
ROFL. These girls of mine. They really make me laugh.
