Yes, we were hoping for twins. We both have siblings, and we really wanted two children, and quite honestly, I'm not sure we'll be up for a FET next year...financially, if not emotionally. We really want to donate those frosties to someone, help make THEIR dreams come true. And it's weird to wonder....what happened to the other one? Where did it go? What could it have become?
Please don't misunderstand me...we are THRILLED!! But I am definitely a little sad, and weirded out by this life that might have been. That my body just absorbed it. I told my friend at work that I am trying not to think about it. Because of the emotions attached to it.
Does this make sense? Is it normal? To mourn this speck a little, even with the one we have growing quite happily in Helga right now? I don't know how to feel!
But to make this not a total downer post, I will leave you with the fun things you get to say to customers when you work with cell phones in a call center...remember there are a lot of touchscreen phones out there today. So here are a couple snippets to make you smile whilst you contemplate my question.
- "Are you touching it? Are you touching it right now?" - When I overheard a friend say this I almost peed my pants.
- "Okay, now tap that. Now tap it again." We all get to tell people to Tap That multiple times a day. Oh, the things that amuse you to get you through the day in corporate hell.
