With Dennis out of town the past week, I find myself wandering around town talking to strangers. Have I ever mentioned that this is something I enjoy doing?
It comes naturally through my genes, via my Dad.
So last night I was at Panda Express by myself, and I spotted 2 infant carriers side by side on a table.
Could I pass this opportunity up? NO!
I went up to this very tired and happy looking couple and said,
"So sorry to interrupt your dinner, but uh, You have twins??!"
They have not even reached their due date yet.
This mom said she did not get to sleep until 4:45am this morning!
These babies eat 10 times each a day.
So that's 20 times between them both!
I told her our twins are at 29 weeks now. She said she started labor at 29 weeks and with meds they were able to keep the twins in her for another 5 weeks after that. (I wanted to get these facts right for Amy...I know she would want to know :)
I was sad to leave this couple. I'll probably never see them again.
I wanted to watch their twins grow up.
But there is only so much I can ask of a stranger.
