The twins.Posted: April 13, 2009
Happy Easter! I had the opportunity, after a long week at the Capitol, to spend Saturday with my twin cousins Bryon and Bryson. Well, it actually started off more as being conscripted since my mom informed me I would be escorting them around our church’s Easter egg hunt and related activites (inflatable obstacle courses, slides, moon rooms, balloons and face-painting).
Following the church events we all went to see Monsters vs. Aliens, followed by a trip to Buger King. This took place in a little over five hours, but it was tiring. Just me and two energetic boys. In any event, ignoring my intital reluctance it was very much a learning experience.
The main lesson I learned is that children are expensive! Not just in terms of monetary cost, but time as well. This isn’t meant to be taken in the negative, just a fact.
For me right now both, money and time, are at a premium. Meaning I have very little of either, and that which I do have I am not quite ready to give up selflessly to be a parent.
Maybe in another, ooh, five years. I should probably get married first though.
