Revelation Day

The brunette twin recently discovered a few of our "pre-twins" photo albums. Since the girls are off school today, she decided to browse through a couple. She seems stunned to realize that we did stuff before they were born. The blond twin bounces in and out of the room whenever her sister sounds excited. 

You went to Alaska?
Where's this? 
You went to the Hoover Dam?
That's where my purple blankie came from?
Look at all that snow!
Sissy, look at Mom and Dad by the Statue of Liberty.
No fair.  I want to go to Hawaii.

It's really shocking for her to believe that we did anything before they were born.  She has been flipping through albums asking questions. She especially likes the photos of her Gramma Schmidt and Grampa Cartwright. 

Just a few minutes ago the light bulb went on in her head. She said, "Oh, you like to do stuff so now we get to do it with you."

Our pre-child and post-child worlds just connected in her head. She realized we're more than just her parents. It's her Good Friday revelation.
