Is the baby up front real?
Wow, is she mowing lawn? Holy cow. I have twins too, but I just mowed lawn while they were taking their nap.
The whole “leaving the house by yourself with two babies” thing is really challenging, though. I chose to just simply never leave the house with them. Grocery shopping late at night, alone, is actually quite pleasant. God I sound psycho. I should stop now.
Not at all, I totally agree with everything you said. And mine aren’t even twins!
What I want to know is how she managed to get all of that on … by herself. Assuming that’s what she did. I’m the opposite of Jennifer, in that with twins around, I HAVE to get out of the house. I can’t yet decide which requires more: the mental effort or the physical effort.
Whoa. She’s even clothed herself in purple.
I was going to say the exact same thing. Ha! :)
That looks kind of dangerous for the babies… what about flying debris from the mower??
Please tell me you’re joking…I could see hearing damage, but “flying debris”? :-)
I wondered that too, Betsy.
I’ve been nailed with flying debris even when using the bagger. So being concerned about the baby is valid! Not to mention their hearing!!
If there’s accidentally a stick in the grass, it can fly up. It’s happened to me before.
And I didn’t even think of the hearing damage! Good call. :)
What about the gas fumes ? That is a gas mower. SO dumb, where is Daddy ???
I agree, I’m thinking the one on the front will either be a daredevil as an adult or of heights while falling into chopping blades ~
I cannot imagine toting kids on my back while mowing ~ give me my rider mower any day
I had both twins packed on when we went hiking in Yosemite National Park this summer, but I think they were a little younger than these kids and I didn’t have to push a mower. That’s a mom who’s serious about her mowing.
She looks like every mom in Africa, only they’re cutting grass with a machete.
But she doesn’t look very happy.
I’m not usually smiling when I’m mowing the lawn but it doesn’t mean I’m unhappy.
I don’t smile either – I usually sing when I’m mowing the lawn (lots of noise so no one can hear me!). But then again, we have a riding mower.
Me too! About the singing part, I mean.
Except that she forgot to put safety glasses on all three of them. HAR HAR
That’s what pack-n-plays are for. Pretty sure my lawn mower exceeds the safe decibel and fume qoutient for infants.
Let’s hope she doesn’t hit a rock…happened to me before.
I would just like to say, “Go Mom!” She is probably out there because her husband is either working hard all day outside of the home or is a total lazy man who won’t accept responsibility for household duties. If she even has a husband at all!
Either way, she is making the most of the resources she has, isn’t leaving her babies to cry, and is working hard to have a nice yard for them to play in.
there’s no no way that kid in front is real.
I say she is heads and tails above the “Supermom’ neighbour I have who mowed the lawn while she was 9 months pregnant with at least 3 of her kids. “We’re from Seattle”. Well, I don’t see her mowing the lawn with two kids strapped to *her*. Top that “Seattle”!
