Chapter 3 – The Unexpected

I didn’t see it coming. I didn’t even think that it was a possibility. The signs were there, but I was blind. Our lives were forever altered on that fateful day of October 5th, 2018.

A few months earlier, my wife was making breakfast. She opened a carton of eggs, and started cracking. The first egg hit the pan, and she noticed something odd… two yolks. She cracked another one, and again, two yolks. She cracked another one… two yolks!!

My wife claims she knew at that time. My dumbass didn’t even give it a second thought. I just remember sitting there in that office with my jaw hanging open as I stared at the blue screen. There they were, squirming with life right in front of our faces. The midwife looked at us and said, “Congratulations guys, you’re having twins!”

Hello my beautiful babies!

I will try to summarize the roller coaster of emotions I felt in the moments that followed: Shocked, elated, scared, hopeful, worried, dumbfounded, joyous, proud.” Those are just a few. I literally had “all the feels” as my sister would say.
