Old News or Why B and I are officially INSANE

by | Mar 25, 2011 | Uncategorized | 15 comments

 I'm sharing something that was news aaaages ago but in my defense, I am only just reading about it now. The news was delivered, literally, with my Who magazine subscription (yes, it's trashy but I NEED it, so hush your judgey mouth).

My favourite edition of the year is The Oscars special. Yes, I'm only just reading about the Oscars now. Yes, it was delivered almost one month ago and yes, it has been sitting in it's plastic cover, unopened, until now. 

I blame the children entirely.

So, the news I'm sharing. I am in bed flicking through my brand new, month-old magazine. B is brushing his teeth. I tell him to hurry, I have something to show him.

He hops into bed next to me and together, we look.

At this.


And this.



And finally, this.

Danish Twins                                                                                                                                                                                    Photo source

And then we have a little conversation about wouldn't it be sort of amazing and beautiful


I'm not even joking.

Yes, the as-yet unnamed twins of Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik and Princess Mary are overwhelming in their adorability but really? Not that we could choose to have twins anyway but seriously?

I am outraged at the blatant disregard we have shown for our future mental health. Four children under the age of five? What are we playing at, dammit? 

Clearly, we can not be trusted to use our genitals responsibly.


Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    Hahahahahaha, you’re definitely crazy. However if you get Sarah to hope you have twins you probably will, that’s how I got the girls, I swear 😀

  2. E

    oh god my uterus just quivered…….

  3. MJ

    Unless you turned your life into some kind of hit reality show revolving around your adorably identical babes, giving you the money needed for nannies etc? Then it wouldn’t be so bonkers…

  4. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Oh, that is so what I’m doing if we have twins. I’m going to get a pitch ready just in case…..

  5. Melissa

    You know it worked for Kate Gosselin – she’s crazy but not because she had sextuplets and twins. She just is.

    God those royal offspring are cute. How like Mary to just do everything so perfectly. Two of each now.

    I hate her.

  6. Tash

    I was admiring those absolutely GORGEOUS children the other day & showed Tim as well. P.S – I have several, no make that at least 8 cooking mags from my subscriptions that are in plastic unopened. The next issues will arrive on Monday to no doubt join the others. Oh Time, where art thou

  7. Trish

    Twins rock …:)
    Gosh they are cute though the jumper on B is ugly.

  8. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Yes, Kate Gosselin is certifiable. That weird face, for starters.

    And yeah, Mary has nailed it. Just in general. With everything.


  9. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Oh Tash! We share some similarities at the moment. Unopened magazines and clucking little hearts.

    Oh time! Are you hiding with money?

  10. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    I always wanted a twin boy and a twin girl when I was little. Then I had one baby and was grateful for it’s oneness! But there is something magical about twins.

    The jumper is ugly? Oh no,no,no, Trish! I think part of the reason I want another baby is to dress it in that exact little jumper! The colour is sublime.

  11. Ruthy

    Bahahahaha…..you funny girl. If you had twins that cute you could count on me to babysit at least once! I only just caught up with their cuteness on Friday myself at Sam’s swimming lesson…it’s my half hour of trash mags 🙂 so no judgely thoughts here.

  12. Angie @ The Little Mumma

    Now Aunty Ruthy, we’ll need something more substantial than an offer of once. Also, do LD and Zee meet your cute requirements because you are welcome to babysit them ANY TIME.

  13. Tina

    Remember when the twins come they are to be called Norshun and Torbian. Nice Danish names don’t you think?
