I'm not funny

About the twins: I got quite a few calls/texts/e-mails from people who didn't dare congratulate me via comments considering the date of my announcement... and that was probably smart because I was totally lying.


When I came up with the idea yesterday to fool you all with my totally believeable twin plot I thought I was so funny and smart. I hastily posted, almost forgetting to crop the name of the real mother of twins out of the ultrasound photo. I laughed and couldn't wait for comments.


Then I did what I normally do after posting - checked some of my friends' blogs. It was crazy because many of them felt prompted to announce their pregnancies on that special day too! I realized that I wasn't smart - or funny - and immediately went back to my blog to delete that post. I struggled with the ethics of taking a post off of my blog (I know, I blatantly lied on my blog and I'm worried about the ethical dilemma of unposting). So I left it there. I'm sorry to all of those who were geniuinely excited for me. And I'm sorry to those disappointed by my truly unoriginal idea.

It did give me a good laugh though.

I did notice the plethora of "I'm pregnant" stuff on April Fools day... so... I went ahead and did not believe you, but it was still a good one. :)

I read this too late (after all the family website stuff) But I sure wish you were having twins. It would be so fun!

i was almost fooled when ms dethrow corroborated your story in her comment, but i held off my congratulations, knowing what a trickster she is. i totally would have believed you if not for her -- what does that say about our lovely julie? :)
