Yesterday, I was browsing the massive blogroll over at Multiples and More site and a blog caught my eye. The post description was the title of a book I read and really enjoyed when I was expecting the girls. The blog was under the 'Expecting' category, so I clicked over to see what the parents-to-be thought of the book in question.
I read through the review of the book, and decided to leave a comment congratulating the new parents on their upcoming additions. After commenting, I read a little further on the blog, which is written by the dad-to-be. (Don't you just love seeing a dad's perspective on the whole pregnancy/family thing? I enjoy reading about it from the "other side" sometimes.)
To my surprise, the 'About Me' section mentioned that the couple had recently moved back to the husband's hometown, which happens to be only about an hour and a half from where I live. Funny, right? I commented again, telling them about the coincidence I had discovered and mentioning my hometown.
It gets better...
The dad responded to my comment with an email, telling me that his wife is actually from the same town as me! Turns out, she is just a couple of years younger than me, and I vaguely remember her face from school and sports over the years. She actually has a twin sister herself, which helped jar my memory a little.
So, to sum it up...I click on a blog at random, out of about 1000 or so listed on a website. The family ends up living near me, and the mother and I basically went to school together here in this small town in north Alabama.
How random is that?!
It really IS a small, small, world. (Do I have that song stuck in your head yet? Do you want to kill me? I've been singing it all afternoon!)
Stop by The Waiting Womb and welcome my new friends to the multiples parenting community. I'm sure they would love a little unsolicited advice! : )
