It’s been a heckofa long time since I blogged. Normally I don’t make excuses for blog lapses; you just can assume I’ve been: A) busy B) lazy C) uninspired or D) held hostage by a band of wild sixth graders who insist I grade their personal narratives thisveryminute.
This time my blog-absence was absurdly long. But I have a good reason.
TWO very good reasons:
St. Matt and I are expecting our first children — twins — early next winter.
Go ahead and jump up and down in glee for me — the doctor says *I’m* to refrain from impish dancing. Do you know how hard it is to refrain from impish dancing and other hijinks when you’re this elated? WICKED HARD!
And while the Schmidtlets (lettes?) will be the very best things to happen to us, they are also terrible nausea-monsters. I’ve spent most of the past 3 months in varying shades of green.
Luckily green is my second-favorite color.
Even more lucky is the fact that The Queasy is finally, finally starting to pass.
Until it’s completely gone, however, I’ll keep rocking my sea-sickness bracelets and wearing a pea-soup completion with a smile. They’re the latest trends, you know.

Still happy-dancing for you and St. Matt. 🙂
Oh wow! Congratulations times two!
Tiffany! CONGRATULATIONS! What exciting news!
What a GREAT excuse for not blogging – it beats mine! Can’t wait to shower the little Schmidtlets(ettes) with baby sparkles, T! I might even let them call me Auntie Em… 😉

Congratulations! You are going to love being a twin mom!
Please, PLEASE, let me know if you have any questions. So many things are different when you are having two and it helps to ask someone who has been there before.
How many weeks are you?
Kim : Thank you, thank you!
Irish : don’t trip! I will play DJ for you and Linda.
Linda : <3
Nova : THANKS! This means I get MULTIPLE cupcakes, right?
Nicole! I will definitely be asking for suggestions and advice. We’re 14 weeks. So… about that nausea?
Ahh, I see Blogger’s being a little Fussypants and not posting all the comments. Sorry, guys, but I still get them via e-mail and appreciate all the congrats!
And, you’re all going to be available to babysit, right?
I also cannot WAIT for the Schmidtlets to arrive, so I can spoil them ROTTEN.
Tiffany, you will now need to find a great and graceful new way to eat TWO cupcakes at the same time! Because that’s what you’re getting when I see you! I’m so happy for you!
Emily – so nice of Blogger to finally let your comment show up 😉 Maybe it was caught up in “A Twister! A Twister” *gigglefit*
Suze – Spoil away. Since YOUR kiddo is freakin’ fantastic, I’m not too worried.
Nova – YUM!
Do you know how hard I had to try to not cry when you told me this!?! 🙂
Ridiculously excited for you & Matt!
Should we do a pregnancy photo shoot sometime?
Tiff – Now you’ve got *ME* all sniffly. Thanks for being 12 types of awesome when I’ve been 12 shades of green. <3 you, too!
I haven’t been able to sit down and comment on this til now, but I kept the tab open and every time I saw it, I smiled huge. Still smile! So happy for you, Tiff. CONGRATS to you and M!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Courtney – I will take your smiles ANY TIME, darling! Thanks.
