So I have an induction date set for this Wednesday, Aug 22nd. Â We are really excited and can’t wait to meet our little guys. Â This past weekend was filled with last outings since we knew we would be very busy in the coming weeks. Â We went to the pool on Thursday with Becky, John, Reese, and Poppi. Â Chris and John had a guys night Friday night. Â Grammie and Poppi took us out to a pre-birthday celebration for the boys on Saturday.
And then Becky and I attempted to do brunch on Sunday. Â I say attempt because Sunday morning brought a big storm and the rain was crazy!!! Â We had planned to go to a restaurant called Relish and decided to brave the rain. Â The drive was slow and we both were a little nervous being out driving in the conditions. Â Well, we finally made it and sit down to have a nice little brunch. Â When we sit down, Becky informs me that everyone was looking at me as we walked in. Â I am so numb to the stares and whispers that I hadn’t really noticed. Â I look around and there are still people looking at me and whispering and I just have to laugh. Â Yes, I’m a freak show. Â I’m pretty sure I’m not going to have these babies in the restaurant, but that is what I’m sure everyone is thinking. Â The hostess inquires about my due date and I go through my usual routine. Â The table next to us hears that I’m having twins and I swear I can see a sense of relief on all their faces and I picture their conversation…Ooooohhh…that explains it.
Once we are past the freak show entrance, we started to look at our menus. Â Power flickers. Â Power goes out. Â We use our iPhones as flashlights to look at the menu but obviously the restaurant can’t cook anything at the moment. Â So we wait maybe 10 minutes or so and then we hear that a tree has struck a power line. Â We leave. Â Another chance for everyone to look at the freak show as we exit.
We battle the rain and get back to the car for another yucky car ride back. Â We debate just throwing in the towel and going home, but decide to go to Piper’s which is closer to home. We are determined to have our brunch!! Â We make it to Piper’s and no one stares as we sit down. Â No one asks about my due date. Â It’s lovely.
I go to the buffet and the omelette chef politely says:
Omelette chef: I’m guessing you are due any day now?
Omelette chef: Are you having a boy or a girl?
Me: Twin boys actually
Omelette chef: I was wondering that, but didn’t want to presume anything. Congratulations!
Me: Thanks! Watch out, I might eat this whole buffet.
Omelette chef: Help yourself…we’ll make more!!
Ahhh…after all the yucky comments and stares, it was nice to have a pleasant and fun interaction for once. Thanks nice omelette chef!! And by the way…the omelette was delicious!!
We had a fun weekend and are ready to meet these little guys! Â Just a few more days before life changes yet again!!
