Meet Gracie and Luke, our six-year-old twins!
We waited for them forever and can't remember life without them.

Twinsies for Sale! A Poem

Twinsies for Sale
A Poem by Mommy

Twinsies for Sale! Oh, Twinsies for Sale!
Two crying and crying young Twinsies for Sale!
You may think I'm joking, but really I'm not.
They're driving me crazy, my stomach's in knots!

From morning to night,
They cry and they pout,
They throw toys, food and shoes.
Heck, sometimes, they shout!

I don't know what's happening,
They used to be fine.
If this continues much longer,
I'll have to drink some wine.

They hit and they scratch,
They hang from my clothes.
They walk around screaming
With snot streaming from their nose!

Who will buy the young Twinsies?
I'll make you a deal.
Five dollars? One?
I promise, they're a steal!

They're really a bargain.
It's like two for one.
Toddlers without being pregnant,
You could be done!

I guess I might miss them.
I, mean, heck, who would wake me up early?
Who else would make me so crazy
My hair goes curly?

Wait.........Yes, I mean it!

Twinsies for Sale! Oh, Twinsies for Sale!
Two crying and crying young Twinsies for Sale!
