I'm not the only one with siblings...

I feel like I think of great blog topics all day, and then forget them when it is time to write in the morning. I need to either write them down, or start writing blogs in the afternoon or evening instead. Or possibly, my ideas at that time of day aren't any better, but looking back on them now a day later I imagine that they were... I am not sure we will solve this problem.

I realize that I never mentioned (I don't think) when The Body's step-mom had her twins last month. A boy and a girl, both healthy and happy:-) To recap, The Body is one of my very dearest friends, first person I met in college, roommate for all four years, recently lived in LA and has (now) a grand total of NINE younger siblings (one brother, three half-brothers, five half sisters...) The twins follow the triplets, who are now about 5.

This comes up now because The Body is going to move back to Phoenix for a little while to help out. Not surprisingly, the two new babies have made things a bit overwhelming for her Mom and Dad (stepmom), so she is going to go back for a little while because she is a good daughter and sister:-) I think she plans on doing some cooking and shuffling the older kids to school and practices and stuff a lot so that her stepmom can be home with the babies all day and her Dad can be with them at night.

You know you are in trouble when it is a huge relief to ONLY have to take care of twin infants all day by yourself... So let's all give a quick shout out to The Body for being selfless enough to go pitch in for a couple months with the kids:-) She immediately becomes the hottest soccer mom in America. She can even make a minivan look hot!!!

Quick note on Tinkerbelle, too. She had a school play last night and many of her newly discovered aunts and uncles and a couple of cousins went to see it. This makes me wish even more that I knew my father's family when I was growing up. Ahh well, crying about it isn't gonna help... I am really glad that she will know them for longer than I did:-) They are great people and will be great to have in her life!

I can't wait for them to all come and visit next summer! That will be a trip...

I don't care how awesome The Body (tm) is, I doubt there is anything sexy to be said about a minivan. :P

Good point...I should have said "If anyone can make a minivan look hot..." because I don't know if it can be done.
