Just in case you were wondering...Tegan & Sara are cool
Tegan and Sara are the best thing since guacamole was invented. Read this post from their site and tell me it's not the sweetest thing ever. I love these girls...love 'em!
Dunno why I brought it up now...I suppose because I spent a post-courthouse afternoon drowning in their absolute funky sweetness just to ease my mind. The girls are twins and you should see 'em in interviews together. It's hilarious and all beautiful in the coolest sisterly way possible. It sways my wishful thinking to child #2, if and when we make that choice, and it makes me want a house full of girls. I was a twin myself and was all "boyed" out by the time I was all growed up. Little boys don't get much more little boyish than when they have mirror images of themselves to torture and love and torment just because they can. I grew up in hockey rinks, surrounded by farms and factories and grew up like any boy would...completely clueless about girls. My Mom did a stupendous job of coating us in a thick film of sensitivity and openness but I was still a little boy surrounded with boyish influences and a twin brother to taint all of my thinking. Now I can't get enough of my wife and daughter. They're indeed very much "girls" and I'm naturally well beyond intrigued.
I think if we choose to go to this parenting well one more time, I think I would like a girl again. You girls mesmerize me...all of you.
