Opinionated


The other day the Babies R Us mailer came, and I was flipping through it. I saw their Christmas clothes were on sale, buy one, get one 50%. Sweet deal when you've got twins. I started thinking about the family photo I want to have taken in early December, both to mark the babies 9 months and also to have for Christmas cards.

I loved one little dress in particular, and thought it would look just precious on my baby girl (then again, what doesn't?) And I thought a certain little argyle sweater set next to it would look adorable on my baby boy (then again, what doesn't? =-) ).

I mentally started thinking about what David and I had in our closets to match these outfits for the babes, (which of course led to me silently cursing these remaining pregnancy pounds because not everything in my closet fits again...yet.) I left the mailer open on the kitchen table and went about my evening, then went to bed.

When I got up the next morning I saw the mailer on the kitchen counter, only this time there was something different about it...


Turns out my husband has a lot to say about what the babies can and cannot wear in our family photo.

At least we agree on the dress. (he wrote "this one's cute" next to it)

It looks like he said its "okay", ha ha! But, I'm going blind, so ya know! I think those babies will look adorable in whatever you put them in.

"Smack" and "Hug". That's funny.

Eeyore's standard comment is probably appropriate... "Thanks for noticin'."

LOVE,
GRAND DAD

I laughed so hard I have tears in my eyes. Be sure to SAVE that.

I'll be anxiously awaiting the picture to see what you came up with. Remember, black is the perfect color for adults....and it's "kind" to any figure. Be proud of that shape you are in. Your body did a very good work! mom
