I'm a meme virgin (for novices like me, a meme is when another blogger invites you to write a post based on one of theirs). The Dotterel (Bringing Up Charlie)'s meme got me all inspired this morning so I've gatecrashed his meme.. In fact, I was thinking about it so hard in the shower this morning that I couldn't remember if I'd conditioned my hair or not, so I did it again just in case (nothing wrong with twice-conditioned hair after all).
Anyways, back to the meme. The idea is to pick an object that tells the story of me or my family in some way. So here it is - it's the scan I had at five weeks when we discovered we were expecting twins.
The news came as a complete surprise (we were actually prepared for the scan to show I was no longer pregnant). I carried this scan around with me for the next 32 weeks until Mr A and Miss E arrived so it's been well-thumbed and has even travelled to New Zealand and back. The best thing about it was that when we started telling people we were expecting, it was great to pass them this scan and see their reaction as they registered the 'Twin A', 'Twin B' labels. I loved hearing, "Oh my god! Twins!"
