I was thinking about it today on the way to the doctors. My brother Dylan's 13th birthday is on Saturday and I'm so proud of him. I have another half-brother I am not proud of. I have two half-sisters I adore (one is still a BB!) and one I...well sometimes I want to kick her hard so she could maybe glean some sense from it. Because wow.
That's a lot of siblings. Because I didn't grow up with them, I always look at Thomas and his 4 brothers and sisters and think, "wow your family is huge". I have one more sibling than he does. Which is just a little strange to think about. My Mam has five kids, just like Lavinia. Only, UNLIKE Lavinia, she wasn't the most incredible mother know to man. Meaning I didn't see her for like ten years after I turned 5. She's better now. But that's why sometimes I forget.
I'm glad though. I want a big family after so long of having no one but me. Which brings me to the next point.
I had an ultrasound today. I'm having twins.
