Christening Of The Twins Today! EEK, I’m Nervous! 10.5 Wks. Old
Christening Day Has Arrived! 5-16-10
10 wks. 5 days old.
Hi Everybody. Yeah! Finally Current on all my blog posts, they are all in, and up to date! Anyhow, I am sitting here a mere few hours away, from the christening of my twin baby girls. I should be excited, but I’m a bit scared for numerous reasons.
One reason, is because of who is going. I invited one friend, who in turn, invited her whole freakin family, and I was too much of a wuss to say ‘hey we can’t afford it’. I mean, after all, I did grow up with her family, but we were keeping it small due to expense, and lack of funds, so the extra $32 a person is going to be taxing on us, but we decided to go with it, and allow it. Doesn’t feel right to say no, eventhough we never invited those persons to begin with. Then my dad who has a gal pal, forgot to mention until last night, about her children, who are 13 and 15 I believe, not completely sure, I don’t really know them at all, and wasn’t expecting them to go, so tack on $64 more dollars there, plus more cramped quarters.
My mother is most nervewracking. She thinks she runs the show, no matter what the event, or whom is paying. She invited her friends, and tried to tell me who I should or could invite to my OWN WEDDING! Yup, that is the type of mom, I am talking about, but much worse to, she has a big time nasty streak, so I’m praying she doesn’t push buttons, today of all days, we will be REALLY upset with her.
Then with twins, I’m scared x’s two, about how they will be acting today. They by far don’t sleep as much as they did last month, so I predict them awake, and one at least, just adores cranking, so, i predict some crying jags going on, which is what I wanted to avoid by doing this early. With Mikayla she was 6 months, and cried the whole time, it was disastrous, but with them, I wanted to do it, while they still laid still and were quiet, mostly asleep, but that just didn’t happen. My boys were awesome during the christenings, but we are going back a decade + there. Maybe I can’t remember everything as it was, HE HE. (I think they were good though).
We couldn’t afford to have this shindig, any sooner, so now, I wonder, and worry, about how it’ll go, when their last feed prior will be, so they aren’t hungry at the alter, can we time that right? Will they spit up on their beautiful & pricey dresses? Will I forget something important, I should have packed? ETC ETC ETC. I just want a lovely, peaceful occassion, and them in fairly good moods, with the nice weather that was predicted. Is that too much to ask for? For me, it seems so *smile*, but we shall see, and soon. I’m just tense is all.
Hopefully the clouds will break soon, and the sun will start shining. Everything seems better, with a little light shed on it. Wish us all luck!
PS- OH, I wanted to mention, the girls are smiling like crazy now, (this just recently started). I’m so elated, it makes me well up completely, and totally melts my heart. I feel so blessed!
