There comes a day in every woman's life when she becomes a mother.. of beautiful Louboutin twins. For some this day has come and gone, for others it is somewhere on a distant horizon. For me, it was this weekend. I've held off for all the normal reasons:
- I'm only 25, is it totally ridiculous to buy these for myself?
- PS: I'm also not a Kardashian
- I was saving this for a special purpose/occasion that I deemed worthy
I am pleased to report the latter of the above happened. I was somehow accepted to the Harvard of the fashion world, Parson's! It is in a lot of ways a dream come true, a very significant step in the right direction. Therefore, it was time to make my steps more significant - and what better way to do that than with my new loubs, greyhounds + tooth! As a typical new mom, I became very snap happy and decided to photograph their "firsts".
Their first night at home! Look at how regal they are on top of their new bed! Hopefully they don't keep me up!
Classic sibling rivalry, "Mom aren't I taller? I'm taller aren't I?"
Here are my children discovering the double edged sword that is the alcoholic beverage, "Mom why do we have to live in such a boring place, when are we moving? I consumed far too many greyhounds..again.." I let them know that alcohol intake gets easier to control as you get older and learn your limits. But, there are some that never learn them, and I am more than happy to send them to a beautiful "resort" on the PCH with other like minded individuals that are often famous for their indiscretions.
I am so happy that their big brother, Awkward Face Cheetah, is adjusting so well to having the twins in the house. Nothing makes parents happier than when they see all their children getting along!
Here is big brother Awkward Face Cheetah being protective of little sis Tooth. I overheard a sweet moment where he said, "Never date a male shoe just because he looks good and has a promising career, date him because of what's in his sole..and quit drinking so many damn greyhounds!"

As usual there are times when my girls feel insecure and start to compare themselves to the photos in the magazines. I shared this moment with Greyhounds the other evening, "Mom, am I pretty? Do you think other people think I'm beautiful? Will I ever be in Vogue?" I gently let her know that she was physically perfect in my eyes and that I would not change a thing. But more importantly, it was how she saw herself that really mattered. That a truly beautiful shoe had nothing to do with looks, it was more about what was on the inside and how she treated the other shoes. I assured her there were all different colors of soles out there, that other people might be jealous of her redness and how she should not let that effect her. That it said more about them that it did about her.
Here my babies are congratulating me on getting into Parson's! "Mom, can we go with you to New York City??!?!"
I told them of course they could come with me.. IF they learned how to type!
