Week 22 -- Acute Angles and Obtuse Ankles
Lisa goes to the doctor's office. Before she steps on the scale, she takes off her sandals. As the nurse adjusts the scale's weights, she glances at Lisa's feet and shrieks, "Wow! Your ankles are huuuuuuge!"
You can see Lisa's progression of ankle size by my quick little sketch. Currently, her nickname around the house is Babar. And my nickname around the house is Don't-Be-An-A-Hole.
So yes...Lisa is getting bigger. All over the school yard she's hearing parents say things like, "Look how big you are!" or "Your tummy is so large!" or "Where's my child? Good lord...where did my child go?" Thankfully, Lisa's last day of work will be next Wednesday. After which she will be in the comfort of her home hearing her husband say things like "Look how big you are, Babar" or "Your tummy is so large, Babar!"
This past Sunday, Lisa's student's parent threw her a baby shower. It was very exciting because this was our first shower. Lisa received many great gifts, but I didn't have the heart to tell her that none of the clothes will fit her. At least Lisa will be able to use the diapers (Who knew they knew?!?).
Another big event this week is that Lisa started to feel the babies kick. She even put my hand on her belly, and I felt the baby kick too. This was a big deal for me because Lisa hasn't allowed me to touch her for the past five months after she found out I impregnated her with twins. I've been very lonely.
