Nothing like a fresh start. It’s finally done, the semester is finished. Thankfully, we voted no to the strike and did not get suspended. Woah, I mean extended. Take it as you wish. Vanier happens to have a mold problem and is located between two cemetery’s. I’m glad I finished the semester, and I’m also glad to be alive.
Balancing school, stage, comedy, and raising the twins has become very tiring for me. However, I’ve learned to balance and organize everything. When I say ‘balance’ I mean it literally. I mean being able to pick up both twins at once (no use for the gym anymore). But it’s over. I can finally concentrate on the important things like taking my kids to the park, and washing the tomato sauce of the ceiling which has been there for several months. I’m still uncertain as to how it got there.
Children are not ‘food connoisseurs’ they are ‘food decorators’. If you took Andy Warhol and Monet paintings and spun them in a blender, that’s what my kitchen walls would look like. I’m glad I finally have time to get the kitchen. I’m not sure what’s living in the kitchen sink, but i’ll be honest there are a lot of them, and I hear them talking loudly at night. You hear that Kafka? C’mon help me out. Oh wait you got your own problems.
I don’t use shampoo with the twins. I don’t want to offend the yogurt that has taken residency on their scalps. The twins are developing different food taste. Which can honestly be really annoying. Imagine cooking three suppers? I know how my mom felt. She would cook a separate dish for my dad . For some reason she referred to it as ‘dog food’ I’m not sure I want to get into that. The funny part is once the food is actually on the plate (this food they supposedly don’t eat), they will eat and demand more. When I say demand. I mean asking has started to disappear from there vocabulary. I will just see a hand pop out from the stroller, expecting the prompt release of some sort of sugary treat. But having twins is an awesome experience, so here’s this:
Top ten reason twins are awesome:
1-Double Halloween candy.
2-You can dress them up in matching vintage 1850’s clothes, have them stand in middle of a hotel hallway and scare the **** out of people.
3-They can watch each other.
4- You can teach them the repeat game, and use it at your discretion.
5- It’s way easier when you just buy two of everything.
6- You can grab one in each arm and run down the street yelling “PANDA!”
7-You are the celebrity of the peasants.
8-Watching people have the most confused look on their face when they notice the other twin.
10- They can share a swing, until they grow old enough and get stuck there for a month.
On another note, I got to perform tonight at a place I have a special connection to. I got to perform at the Miriam home. I got my first job there, and my older brother lives in a Miriam The audience members have intellectual impairments, and were amazingly responsive to us. “Why did the chicken..?” seemed to have been the joke of the night, and the animal impression were hysterical! It was a beautiful show, and I hope to be there in the near future.
I hope you enjoyed this post, and please comment. would love some feedback.
