Double Happiness Announcement!

Two faces to wash, and four dirty hands
Two insistent voices, making demands
Twice as much crying, when things go wrong
The four eyes closing, with slumber song
Twice as many garments, blowing on the line
Two cherubs in the wagon, soaking up sunshine
Work I do for twins, naturally comes double
But four arms to hug me, repay all my trouble.

Dearest Peeps! We’re very happy to announce that Cute Overlord Meg and hubby Sparky just had twins. The entire family is thrilled at the two healthy additions, including Aunt Chief Sister Officer. No names yet—maybe “Maru” and “Winston”? We’ll see. Hopefully we can get some sleep soon. Hooray! Hooray!


  1. Yay! Congrats to you both!

  100. BTW, if you have a girl and a boy twins, they can only be non-identical. But you already knew that.

  101. bookmonstercats says:

    It’s the lack of sleep that does it.

  102. You’d be surprised how many people will still ask if they are identical!

  103. Thanks for taking the time to update us, Sparkster! Sounds like you have a perfect little duo. Snuggles to all of you.

  104. You have to get another Italian Greyhound so everything’s balanced out. :P
