My kid clock hasn’t started ticking and I’m not all that upset about it (Stop with the judgement. I like your kids and don’t mind being around them. I’m just thrilled they’re yours. Especially when they’re screaming at the top of their lungs in Target, have snot running down their nose, smell of sewer due to a dirty diaper, need to go to the ER at 3am due to being sick for the 13th time this year, require one to get up at the ass crack of dawn, etc….).
However this year, I have acquired twins – a niece and nephew that I couldn’t love anymore if they were my own (for the love of Christ, no one tell Teddy).
Being that I’m 1,000 miles away from them, I try to buy their love from afar by sending them presents (this tactic always works with kids under one year, right?). I am sure to send two separate packages (on the same day), as I don’t want anyone getting pissy with having to share (plus, I remember how my sister and I made sure everything was EVEN as kids).
Upon receiving my gift in Iowa, I got this text and following photos from my sister:
B got the cutest star vest in the mail today! She loves it.
Dammit! The mailman was supposed to deliver two packages on the same day! I was promised at the counter when I mailed them!
Don’t worry. I just told her brother that you don’t love him as much.
Well I felt really screwed over (someone has to take the blame) by the lying USPS. How must my sweet nephew feel about his Auntie CBXB forgetting him?
The following morning I received this from my sister:
You do love B! He’s much more appreciative!
Upon seeing the pics, I realized that I’d sent my nephew two things vs. Bawl Baby’s single star vest.
Me: He’s so welcome! Please don’t tell Little Miss Diva that her brother got two things. PLEASE.
Sister: Too late. She knows!!
I rebounded quickly, telling my sister to remind my niece B of the Tiffany’s bracelet she received from her dear old auntie when she was baptized (while all brother B got a big hug and smooch).
Babies can be such bitches – especially when they take after their drama queen aunts.
