I thought that the latest round of tabloids were the reason why I had a weekend full of book sales. It was the International finale of the tv show. I wondered what was going on. My book sales went crazy and now I have all of these great new friends that I’m emailing. They all say the same thing. They see that she was lying. Which is what I said all along. So my 15 minutes of fame which is at minute 14 just went international. I knew we had a huge following in the Netherlands. I thought that was weird. The UK, Ireland, Australia, and a lot more are all reaching out. How cool is that? For my first book. I didn’t think that would happen. I honestly thought if I sell a few books we will do okay. I’m almost at the 10,000 books sold mark! That’s not even the actual book. It’s the Ebook. I’m starting to worry now. I ordered the printing company to only print up 1,000 paperback books to sale. That doesn’t count the books I promised for free to anyone that PreOrdered. What if this book takes off? I’m not prepared at all. This shows me how compelling the story is. It has nothing to do with me, it’s all her. People want to know why she said such contradictory things on the show’s ending as what I have proven on my blog over and over and well you get it.

This is exciting new. For anyone that is having a hard time finding the book link here it is:

That will take you directly to the ordering form for the Ebook. I hope that helps. I’ve gotten a lot of emails from the weekend saying they can’t find it. I just assumed it was all English-speaking countries that would have interest. I was wrong. Now we are scrambling to get foreign language translations out. This is so fun.

I want to thank all of you for still coming here and hanging in with me. My life is my life. It’s up and down. I do my best and I try really hard. I guess I’m making a small impact on other people. They are sharing their relationship stories. They are giving me great parenting advice. There are a few that want to mail me baby gifts. That is so sweet but I can provide for my boys. Please donate to your local women’s shelter. I would love that so much. Those women need help. I just need advice.

I talked to two of my friends on the phone last night. One is doing so well. I know she was being strong because she sounded so tired. But even through all she is going through she made me laugh so hard. We cracked up. I just love talking to her.

My other friend shot me a late night email so I called her. She is in “Sam, I’m coming down” mode because she realized that I have really done nothing to prepared for the babies Lol I told ya’ll I haven’t done anything yet. I figured I’ll just wing it. Now I do like to make lists. I like to be organized and I can get things done. I’m definitely not a procrastinater at all. I honestly haven’t had the time. I’m done traveling until the boys are born. And for a few months after. I got all of my work and fun trips checkmarked. I’m good. I don’t need or even want to go anywhere. I’m missing Mardi Gras this year but that’s okay. I have a much bigger party coming soon!

Here is our plan we all agreed with. The morning of Feb. 15th my cousin and her daughter are moving in. I have to pick them up at the airport. I already (My secretary) got us car service so we have plenty of room for their luggage. I told them both don’t pack much we will go shopping and I will get you whatever you need. I am having my maid come in Saturday to help me clean the entire place. I told her I will help you this time and she just laughed and said Okay okay. Whatever, I know how to clean! I just don’t wanna Lol But this is for my sons so I will scrub my whole place top to bottom. I started talking to my dog about the babies. I’m worried about him adjusting. He’s very snuggly. He sleeps in my room every night. I’m also talking to God at night. I kneel next to my bed for prayers but I end up just talking to God. I have a lot on my heart. I just want to do a good job being a dad. I want them to know everyday that I love them. But I don’t know how to do that. I don’t know anything Lol

I went over my list of names last night with my friend. She told me to write them down and start mixing middle names around until I come up with a combination I like. I honestly don’t know what names I want. I have one name picked and solid. That has been a breeze. It’s his brother’s name that I haven’t really figured out. I’m working on it. I’m not matching first letters or rhyming the names. I want them to be individuals as much as they can. I mean who are we kidding ya’ll know I’m going to put them in matching outfits the first 14 years Lol Just kidding. Honestly probably the first few years. Up until they are 2 then it’s time to put out the different outfits.

And you know there will be lots of Batman!

Just sayin Lol The delivery is scheduled for March 1st in the morning. But I was told several times she may go early. She has agreed on a c-section no matter when they come. She does not want to prolong their birth because it’s really hard for her. She is not a happy camper this week. I’m trying to give her space and when she calls I literally jump out of my seat and do the Hello hello are you okay???????????? Lol Is that normal? I told all of my buddies I will be housebound for the next several weeks. If they want to hang out, come over because they won’t be seeing me much. My cousin and her daughter will be my priority. I’m going to work but then come home and do whatever they both need. I went to my Foster parent certification class last night. I have to do X amount of hours to get certified. I asked if I could double up to get done faster because I explained everything. They said no. But because I have lawyer documentations everything will be okay. They get to come home with me…….oh shit I need to get car seats! After work I will go car seat shopping. That is a must have. I forgot to put that on the list. I even said it last night I have to get it but I never wrote it down.

Parenting can’t be that hard with newborn twins, right?

HELP! Lol

  1. Of course! You can’t tell a babies whole wellness unless you can see their vitals. Thousands of more babies pass away from suffocation every year than car crashes.

  2. Oh I forgot, it’s Ash Wednesday today. I hope you got your ashes. I imagine you will be raising the boys Catholic. Two names that I would love you to consider, Dylan and Zander.

  3. That’s why you get the double stroller, also! You can take off the stroller seats, and then the car seats click right on to the stroller base so that you don’t have to carry a car seat in each hand. Seriously, it is the best system ever! It was a huge splurge for us, but we love it.

    And yes, they do make diaper bag messenger bags. With two, I have always found a diaper bag backpack easier, though, that way the bag isn’t shifting around on your hip. Timbuk2 makes a great bag in both the messenger (http://amzn.to/1T80ccj) and backpack (http://amzn.to/1O3bbNx) option. Eddie Bauer also makes a good diaper bag backpack (http://amzn.to/1O3bcRM). There is also a whole line of bags called Diaper Dude (which are designed to be more masculine looking), and they have one that is a convertible diaper bag/backpack so that you can wear it either way (http://amzn.to/20p13FX).

  4. Yeah, just go read about them. They excel in all of the crash test ratings. The base with the pivot mechanism is locked sturdily into the car. When you put the car seat on, it locks into place when you spin it to the proper rear facing position. I researched before buying them, and I didn’t find one case of the seat pivoting or coming loose from the base in an accident. Like I said, they have excellent safety ratings from the testing.

    1. I looked at them online last night. They are pricey but if it’s very safe then that’s what I want. I stopped into 2 places last night to look at baby seats and I almost had a panic attack. There’s all these……knobs and handles and red things on the side. The belts are like a 5 point restraint system and I picked one up. Do you realize how heavy they are? Without the baby! My gosh Lol I really thought I could just pick a car seat up in one hand each, and have the baby bag over my shoulder but I don’t know how that’s going to work. I need one of those messenger bag type baby bags. Do they make those? It needs to go across my chest so I can throw it behind my back and not lose it. I’m screwed. Help! Lol

  5. Hey Sam! Have you looked into Owlet monitors? They’re a bit on the higher end of baby tech but really necessary for any modern age parent.

    It’s a small sock with a pulse oximeter built into it that alerts your if one of your boys stop breathing. I use mine every single night to keep tabs on my little ones heart rate and blood oxygen levels!

  6. Yep, they spin around so that you don’t have to bend into the car at a weird angle to get them in and out. Then they lock into place, obviously, for when you are driving. I linked you to the Amazon order page, but if you go the actual Orbit website or look for Orbit car seat on youtube you can see videos of how it works.

    1. Wouldn’t a pivot mechanism compromise the strength of the system? In a non pivoting car seat the seat clicks into a solid piece on the base and it becomes on solid until. Is the pivot on a rod or some plastic thing? I don’t know about that. I understand the convenience of it and man would that be helpful. I need to go look at those links.

  7. Hi Sam!

    You mentioned car seats, so I had to chime in really quick….You said you wanted advice and suggestions, right? 🙂 The Orbit system is AMAZING! The seats pivot on the base, which makes it so easy to get kids in and out of the car. http://amzn.to/1SemEli Their double stroller is fantastic, also. http://amzn.to/1KDAICn It is kind of a pricey system, but is totally worth it for the convenience!

    Best wishes to you, and prayers for your cousin! We have been through the adoption process, also, and the roller coaster of emotions is just crazy.

  8. You don’t need help Sam you have the help you need in your good heart and your prayers. Sometimes we plan and plan and everything comes out the total opposite and it usually always works out better then planned! Take it all in and enjoy every minute !

Have something to say?
