The "Learning Curve" of Pregnancy

We're all "expanding" here at the Johnson home.  Babies and I are growing every day. And B's knowledge of "how-to" on caring for a hormonal woman pregnant with twins is increasing as well. Poor guy. It's kind of been "baptism by fire" this past week for my sweet husband and I don't know whether to let him lay his head on my shoulder and weep, make him a REALLY good meal, or just give him a little "atta boy!" or "You can do it!" with a slug in the shoulder.

List of things B has learned this week (actually within the past 2 days):

1. Turn the AC on. Portable fan doesn't necessarily "cut" it.
2. If wifey hasn't been clear on this, moms and grandmothers will make it clear.
3. When your wife has gotten to the "waddle" stage of pregnancy, just drop her off at the temple entrance. Less walking = Less waddling. Less waddling = THE BETTER.
4. If this wasn't clear either, mother-in-law will make it clear.
5. You're wife still has about 3 months to go on this roller coaster. And things just seem...hard.
6. If this hasn't been made clear...well it's pretty clear. You're wife looks like a planet. And that planet just keeps growing. It's possible an orbit will soon form around her swollen body with it's own gravitational pull. And. That's. Not. Sexy.
7. But, please, PLEASE remember how much you are LOVED. By SO many people. Mostly by your wifey and these 2 sweet babies she is growing. You are our HERO!!!

Keep your head up, Superman. You are doing AMAZING.
