Rarely can I honestly say I am very excited about people stopping us in public to look at the girls. I don’t want Alyssa and Kylie growing up feeling like they are on display or something to be “looked at”. Not to mention it can get very tiresome when almost everyone wants to see them and talk to me about them. Not like I don’t have anything else to do… But on Monday Russell, the girls and I stopped into a Winchell’s to grab some doughnuts. As soon as we walked in we found a group of senior citizens socializing and having coffee. (always a good sign in a doughnut shop!) Anyways, they didn’t seem to notice us much when we came in, but as we were leaving they were quite excited to see we had twins so we stopped for a few seconds for them to see the girls.
They were SO excited!
One man was even clapping for them! It was so much fun to see a bunch of older people get so joyful so quickly. As we were leaving they were yelling encouragements for us to come back often, even saying “We want to watch them grow up!”. After only like 30 seconds of meeting them. They were so sweet. I left with the biggest smile on my face.
