Duped by the tabloids

Photo_7CCD39AA-BF9D-E463-959E-37D9EB4CDA25I like to read the tabloid headlines while I’m waiting in line at the store.

Oh, come on! You know you do it too!

But the other day one magazine interested me so much I had to buy it:

I just HAD to know about Angelina Jolie and how she was pregnant with twins again!

(In my defense, I have a lot in common with Angelina. I am a mother of twins myself. And a brunette. And… Okay, I guess that’s where our similarities end.)

So, as a fellow mother, I wanted to read all about this. Could she really be pregnant with twins AGAIN? There was an ultrasound of two babies right on the cover!

I mean, it does happen! Once you’ve had twins, you’re more likely to do it again.

Which is why I’ve had my tubes tied, but I digress.

Even the drugstore checkout girl was interested in the cover of the magazine. “Wow!” she said. “Is she really pregnant with twins again?” We discussed it at length.

Anyways, the short answer is…

She’s NOT.

Inside the magazine, you find that the only facts they actually have is that “a source” says that Angelina is “interested” in having more children, and that she might “consider” in-vitro and “possibly” have twins again.

LAME.

And that ultrasound on the cover?

In tiny tiny letters (white on gray) it says, “Ultrasound could look like this.”

I was FISHED IN!!!

Well played, OK Magazine.

How to tell that you’ve been eating at McDonald’s too often

I picked up Happy Meals for the twins in the drive-thru and passed the food to the backseat while driving to keep them quiet for five minutes.

What, like YOU’VE never done that?!

Little Boy opened his and exclaimed:

“Awww, a FART GUN?! We already¬†HAVE a fart gun.”

FART GUN

Sometimes you look at your kids and think, Maybe I should just start over…
