must we do EVERYTHING together?

I mentioned yesterday that my BFF had a baby on Sunday, we'll call her Peas. Her friend we will call Carrots.

Peas was home-schooled. So was Carrots.

After school they lived together for a year and became best friends.

Carrots got married. Peas got married.

Their husbands are brothers.

So now they are sisters-in-law.

They both had "5 year plans" which ended up lasting 7 or 8.

They grew apart over the years, but remained friends.

Peas miscarried her untold pregnancy.

A month later, Carrots miscarried her untold pregnancy.


It took Peas another year to get pregnant.

As it did Carrot. Their due dates were 2 weeks apart, Peas was due first.


Now keep in mind they were not AT ALL planning anything together. In fact Carrots was afraid to tell Peas she was pregnant since she didn't know Peas was also pregnant.

They live in a small town. 1 hospital, 1 delivery room, 3 doctors. They both used the same doctor.

He decides to take off the weekend after Peas' due date. Great.

Peas had contractions for 3 days before she went into active labor. When she got to the hospital, Carrots had been there for 9 hours. Carrots wasn't due for another 2 weeks.

So here we have 2 sisters-in-law in labor at the same time. Their doctor is out of town.


Skipping some more crazy details, Peas had her baby girl 4 hours after Carrots had her baby boy.

Cousins born on the same day.
