Have I ever told you that the twins have a groupie? I know, you think I’m just trying to be funny, but I’m absolutely serious. And this is no ordinary groupie…this is the ultimate groupie, and you all know who she is!
Okay, I’ll give you a hint:
That’s right! The Empress from Good Day, Regular People! The Empress fell in love with the girls long ago – but her absolute favorite thing about them is when they do naughty things that make me want to pull my hair out…I think she really thinks they’re still cute.
Because she loves those little monsters/tyrants/sweethearts so much, I asked her to tell you about the newest Mommy of a Monster feature.
So without further adieu, I gave you the Empress, who is going to introduce The Bidness…my, ahem, I mean the girls’ new feature!
Her eyelashes slowly flutter open as she is awakened by the bright chirping of the birds that have made their home in the tree just outside of her sheer draped french windows.
She smiles as she rolls over onto her side, and sees her husband, still asleep and still handsome after ten years of an idyllic marriage.
Yawning, she grins at the thought of what her day holds ahead: an early Pilates class with her best and dearest friends, followed by a massage at the club’s spa. Without a doubt, the morning will be celebrated with mimosas and the fresh fruit filled crepes their club is known for.
“MOMMY!! Please wake up! OPEN THE DOOR!”
:POUND POUND POUND:
“Mommy! HELP! The twins are dumping out ALL the flour and pulling out the mixer because they say they want pancakes. MOMMY! PLEASE! OPEN THIS DOOR! HURRY!”
:POUND POUND POUND:
Silent swears fill her head as she realizes–once again–it had all been a dream. A dream. Even the handsome husband whose head had been on the pillow next to hers–that lucky dog was already at work. He called it work. HA! THAT made her laugh out loud.
No longer able to deny reality, she threw back the covers, revealing the T shirt and yoga pants she had passed out in the night before. When had she last been able to simply go to bed, she wondered, why was it always passing out like she had just been hit in the head with a 2×4.
She caught herself as she almost tripped down the stairs in her haste to get to the kitchen as quickly as physics allowed. She had learned long ago that seconds counted in staving off clean up time where the twins were involved. Visions, and not holy ones, filled her head, of what she might find once she turned the corner after that last bottom step.
No matter how far she reached into her mind, the twins always did one better.
And this morning’s early sight was no exception.
Welcome to a day in the life with Ms.L and Ms. M. And poor Tater, who will grow up to pen such a memoir, mark my words.
Life with the girls. Life with the home of The Bidness.
I have been asking and begging and harassing and driving Natalie nuts to PLEASE have a weekly feature of what these girls are up to. I get a huge kick out of them. I think it’s the safety in numbers, it’s the twin double trouble, it’s the hilarity of watching it happen to someone else, it’s the joy and the moments of hijinks that I love. “I’ll take a picture, a snippet, a captioned photo, a short story…anything…. ” I told her, “I just have to get my girls on a regular basis.”
Natalie is making my bloggy dreams come true: with the debut of a weekly dose of The Bidness.
I am so dang happy.
Welcome to your own regular feature, Ms.L and Ms. M. You have made this old bag very, very happy. It’s always so much fun to laugh, and watch, because it’s happening to someone else. Seriously, you girls make my day.
Happy to have you here!
And, Nat? I can laugh because it’s happening to you and not me.
Sigh. I’m glad that you get such a kick out of them, Empress!
The girls will be posting for the first time next Friday. They’re already very excited about it. The Empress already has a question she wants the girls to answer: “How do you decide what to do that will make their mom lose her mind that day?”
They’ll be answering that question, as well as any questions you might want to ask them! If you have a question for Lila or Mia, leave it in the comment below!
In the meantime, make sure that you visit The Empress at Good Day Regular People.
And Empress? Thank you. I owe you one!
