The year is. 1982 wow I had just found out I am having twins … Noooooo was my first thought omg my daughter is only 14 months I am 20 .. Omg .. Not good… We had been married on the 3 rd of November. 1979. We were not having any children for three years … Wow three in the first three years … Oh well what do you do… Cry….. My parents were so excited I can not say hubby was when I told him… True to there word mom and dad help out heaps brought us another cot twin prams help out with things they thought and did need… Hubby was feeling a bit low I should be doing all this for you…I said my parents just want to help out…the big day came. I was shopping with dad.. We were in grace bros we were in the baby section and I broke water… Dad I called we need to go.. No he said just give me half an hour .. Dad DAD. DAD. My waters broke. What did you say .. I am going to have the babies then a pain grab me.. Omg he starts yelling top volume help HELP HELP and running around waving his arms like he is trying to fly .. I was standing there holding this table and trying to breath and I was laughing at him… It’s the funniest thing I ever seen in my life.. This man I had know all my life this strong man .. That I had never seen cry or lose it…just completely lost the plot… I walk over to the desk dad had all this help around him by this stage .. And he is trying to explain what’s going on… I,m standing there and they got him a chair…the ambulance came. They where going to take his blood pressure .. It was so funny . They took put me in the ambulance after I told staff I was sorry for the mess . They said when are you due . Oh I am full term tomorrow.. .. They ask if I would like my husband to come with me… What. NO That’s my dad…. Everyone was laughing .. Mum brought her car over and pick dad up he was in such a state…I did16 hours then got taken for a C section. I had given birth too two ident boys. Mathew and Martin.. . So dad goes to Work and tells everyone and anyone that will listen he just got twin sons. Omg his work sent my poor mother flowers she was so embarrassed .. After mum and dad having. 5 girls they and a grand daughter they finally got grand sons mum and dad was always going to call a son Mathew Roy. So we named our first twin Mathew Roy. And the other Martin James.. And we had a Melissa sue. .. Time goes and life is fun with our ups and downs but our parents were always good to us.. Mum and dad are gone now. But to sit and tell the story to my grand children about the funny poppy the dad your dad was born… My grand daughter was born last year on dads birthday. She has brown eyed parents but her eyes are as grey as dads and she has that wicked smile. .. My dad in her is back .. And I,m truly blessed to have such great parents and a loving husband and three beautiful children … But if I was to give anyone advise. Do not give them all the same letter for there first names the mail is bloody horrid… But as far as school goes I ever lost a thing in the thirteen years each one was there m. Gully covered all of them…
