Bizarre Love Triangle

I wanted to sleep in this morning.

The twins, on the other hand, did not.

So I brought them into my bed and attempted to snuggle them back to sleep.

It was working well, until they realized I was snuggling them simultaneously.

They share a room, they share clothes, they share DNA. But they will not, repeat NOT, share their mama.

I tried to explain to them that they shared my womb for 8+ months, that my arms and my lap are big enough to accomodate them both, and that even though they're too heavy to carry at the same time, now I can hold each of their hands and walk with them instead.

However, they remained unconvinced.

So my baby boys fought over me this morning. I broke it up, which is difficult to do when you've got 50+ pounds of toddler in a body pile on your torso trying to claim as much mommy territory as possible.

But break them up I did.

The rest of the day was more of the same. It's nice to feel loved, but I must admit this is not the scenario I pictured back in high school when I daydreamed of two cute boys fighting over me. Be careful what you wish for, apparently.

Even Becca & Bridget fight over my lap these days - crazy. I can only imagine it with twin boys! Cute.

It's even worse when Ashley jumps in! Luckily she's not too keen on snuggling so it doesn't happen very often. ;-)

My boys fight over me all the time. All the while Aaron sits on the side, all alone. I said to him once, "what's it like to be so unpopular?" He didn't think it was funny.

Hee hee!! I'll have to use that line on Scott - I doubt he'll think it's funny either, but it made me laugh!! :-)
