Kaia can spin a pretty good story when needed, but sometimes she speaks nothing but the truth. Last night she was telling me some of her made up jokes. And this one hurt:
Kaia: Why was the mommy cranky?
Me: I don't know, why?
Kaia: Because she has two babies in her tummy.
Ok, I get it, I've been pretty cranky lately. I try hard not to be, but I haven't succeeded. Last night was exceptionally bad, but I was really trying to keep it to myself. My back hurt, I was tired, and I learned that another November mom, also carrying twins, went in for an ultrasound and learned that one of the babies had died. She and I bonded quite quickly. The first two to know we were having twins. We both have two older children, and are close in age. I felt her loss like I would feel my own. The good news is the other baby is doing well, and the doctor believes she'll have no problems carrying him or her to full term.
I don't want to start your weekend out on a sour note, so it's a good thing Kaia had something much funnier to say this morning. I told her that she had $2.25 in her backpack for lunch.
Kaia: $2.25 is a lot
Me: Yes, that's what it costs for lunch
Kaia: That's expensive
Me: I think so too, but apparently that's what it costs
Kaia: They should be ashamed of themselves!
