Is there something wrong with me? Is my playroom supposed to look like this?

Because it doesn't.

I am usually pretty certain that I have a good command of the English Language. However, I am an idiot when it becomes to double entendres. It was only 3 years ago that I finally understood the “Every kiss begins with Kay” slogan.

I am not sure why I think this is so funny… but in the eighties, I thought the two most beautiful women in the world were Lea Thompson, and… wait for it… Darryl Hannah. That’s the truth. You can’t make that kind of stuff up.

A PSA for next Christmas or any other gift-giving occasion: When you give a gift certificate, please remember to put the amount somewhere where the receiver can see it. Not because it will make them appreciate the gift more or less, but because they will know whether they can dream about an iPod or iDrops.

I cannot believe that on Wednesday my babies will be one. Everyone told me that the first year with twins would be a blur, but I couldn’t disagree more. This first year has been so chock-full of memories and warm moments. Has it been busy? Absolutely. Have we lost sleep? For sure. Have I lost my mind? On occasion. But overall, are we happier than we have ever been in our entire lives? NO QUESTION!!!! Come back Wednesday for a very special Twinstrom first-birthday post – complete with a hilarious story about the moment that makes me almost exactly like Britney Spears (I kid you not, whether you love me or hate me, this story will delight you. I promise).


  1. You mean your children don't play on a cold, hard floor next to a very expensive telescope?

  2. Colleen, I have felt we are kindred spirits before, but now it is solidified. Last year, my husband and I were watching tv and a Kay Jewelers commercial came on. At the end, I exclaimed, "OH! I get it!" My husband was astounded I never figured out the "every kiss begins with kay" slogan. I, too, feel very comfortable with the English language, but it didn't dawn on me until then. Hope the Twinstroms have a wonderful birthday week!


Comments are cool, being mean is not, so please... just don't do it. Hey, thanks!
