I know, you’re thinking I’m bananas.
And I am. But a friend of mine, Katy, over at the blog I Want a Dumpster Baby is having her twins this weekend. I’m a little excited. She calls them Hall and Oates. So for the last 6 months, myself, and about 20,000 other folks have been following her journey while she gestates these babies! I’m guessing there will be real names and Hall and Oates have been code names this whole time.
I wish her so much goodness as she brings those babies into the world. If you know Katy, then you know how superbly fabulous this whole occasion is. If you don’t know Katy, let me give you a quick reference guide to help you along with why she’s so awesome-
Katy has a big smile.
Katy was an alcoholic.
Katy was a homeless alcoholic living on the streets of Chicago.
Katy is now clean and sober and full of gratitude each and every day.
I first met Katy online last spring when she was talking on her page about quitting smoking. She made an electric cigarette pretty damn sexy.
Katy likes spazz dancing in elevators.
Katy likes animals so much so that she doesn’t eat them.
Katy has people who love her and these babies who will think the world of her.
Yep, these babies are being brought into the world by two very grateful, full of happy kind of people. Her husband Chris, I can only imagine, is completely strong and loving, to be with such a larger than life girl like Katy. They chose the route of IVF to have these babies so they know how absolutely precious and darned lucky this whole gig is.
So I can’t kiss Katy’s belly- she’s in Chicago and I’m over here in the rainy Northwest. So I send my love via the internet and my blog.
My Reason to Live Friday #28 is other people’s happiness and those sweet Hall & Oates babies that the world gets to meet here in a few days.
Katy- all the best my sweet. And please don’t plan on freezing your placenta for later. It’s just weird.
Spazz dances for you- MUWAH!
Everyone is talking about Kim Kardashian and if she’ll sell her pics to the press when her baby is born. I say, who cares? The only babies I’m interested in are Hall & Oates. As far as I’m concerned, no Kimye baby or even Ivy Blue has anything on these kids.
And then everyone knows what a big deal Katy is, so I told her so with this card:
