Stupid is as stupid does.

We told DH's family on Christmas night that we are having a boy and a girl. They were all thrilled, but above the happiness the following is what I remember most. Let me preface this with the fact that my BIL is a very intelligent man. He's an engineer with a few degrees, but is apparently only "book smart".

And Dandle, this of course made me think of you. LOL.

BIL: Wow, a boy and a girl. That's awesome.
Me: It's just what we were hoping for.
BIL: Will they be able to tell if they're fraternal or identical twins?
Me: Well, since they're not the same gender, they're obviously fraternal.
BIL: But they could still be identical twins, right?
Me: Ummm, well, not by definition. We know they're fraternal.
BIL: But what if they look alike?? Would they be identical twins then?
Me: ....walking away laughing...

I still crack up when I think of how serious he was about it. For a moment I thought he was joking, but he wasn't at all. LMAO.

Heh, I guess that didn't take long.

Reminds me of this post.

So happy that you were able to share such wonderful news with your in-laws.
