I’m going to explode?

Today, I picked up a used Baby Trend Double Snap N Go Stroller Frame (for $30 – a steal!) from a wonderful couple who had twins about a year ago.

The mother happily told me, “Oh, you don’t look big at all, but you’re going to explode towards the end”.  WHAT?!?  Explode?  Don’t get me wrong, I sensed a special “twin mom” comradary between the two of us and I know she meant no harm.

She was also very happy to offer some advice – something I haven’t gotten much of, believe it or not.  It seems that, unless someone has had direct experience with multiples, they aren’t likely to touch that subject with a 10-foot pole.  Perhaps, it’s that they know the pain and agony they experienced with one and hate to even think of two.  Well, whatever the case…

And, come to think of it, near the end, I probably will explode in one sense or another.
