Flour Baby Project
By: Clarisse Rizzi
I should have knocked on wood when I said to my friend, Karina “watch me end up with the 10 pound twins”.... This is
. As the second oldest of five, I have had
TOO MANY babies to take care of
and now I am,
, gifted with two more.
Today I found out that I have two 10 Ib twin girls, Aubrey and Liana, the names of which I plan on using for my future daughters. However, despite my overall
lack of enthusiasm
, I will
make the best of this
project and take care of my girls as if they were my actual offspring.
No child of mine
will be poorly dressed so I plan on changing their outfits every other day, giving both my even and odd classes the opportunity to gaze upon their
pure and utter cuteness.
Aubrey and Liana will be made of the
highest quality premium
unbleached flour on the market, stuffed with
100% crisp cotton
, and dressed in the
poshest & preppiest
Pottery Barn attire my daddy’s checkbook can afford(just kidding). Hopefully my girls will receive
, but I’m sure one or two people just might be jealous and feel the need to speak disapprovingly of them behind my back. (
To conclude my first entry, I plan on mimicking the
authoritative parenting approach
my parents have taken with me and will
emphasize the good
as well as
preventing and punishing
My goal through this approach is to give Aubrey and Liana the
as they mature into adulthood, as my parents
have done with me.

The park was so much fun! We went
on the slide, played on the toys,
posed on the steps, and even
floated in the air!
(well, not really)
Are we allowed to put out babies up for adoption????..I am so
. My babies are
every time I lift them. I knew having 10 Ib twins was going to be
but in no way, shape, or form did I know it was going to be to this magnitude. They are not even real and
I go to bed exhausted
!... They do, however, attract a lot of
They’re more Face-Insta-Vine-Snap-Twitter famous than I have ever been! haha.
I must say, I have been a little
, as a parent. I

on my part) and when I get
to carry them I simply
into the largest bag I have on me or assign the babydaddy the task of carrying them. My current
passive parenting approach
will probably cause
for both of my girls in the future such as
increasing the chances of them being clingy or needy, rude, becoming more likely to get into trouble, perform poorly in school, and be more of a follower
rather than a leader.. I toooootally should win the “Mother of the Year” award..(just kidding).
Just get an empty/old/new/used/dirty/clean bag and add your baby!!!
Walking home from the school bus is always a treat as some of my elderly neighbors make
disapproving facial expressions
towards me [since they believe Aubrey and Liana are real] and they are not up to date on the modern approaches towards Psychology experiments. One of them even accelerated towards me when I was walking on the sidewalk, stopped the car, and said
“What are you doing with two babies,
and after explaining the purpose of the experiment she said
“Oh..Well..good! You don’t need any of those..Not yet!”
On the flip side, my fellow classmates
interesting tales of the
lost body parts
of Aubrey or Liana and how
on the 3rd floor multiple times and twice as often in the courtyard.
Though this assignments was everything but a “piece of cake”, I am pleased to say that
I have never slept as soundly throughout my entire life as I have throughout these past three weeks
. Interestingly, I think I just might
lugging around my 10 ton twins. They certainly
toned my arms!
Anyway, Today is the first day I no longer am required to lug around Aubrey and Liana with me and I must say that it’s very….
. I feel like I am forgetting something yet I know exactly what it is-them! When the dismissal bell rings at the end of each class I, out of habit, pick up my belongings and thoroughly look around my desk as if something else seems to be missing…(which is no longer the case!)
My relationship with the babydaddy is getting better
as he no longer has to relieve me of the 20 extra pounds and deal with my incessant complaining =)
I am pleased to say that I have
how big of a commitment it is
to have children and
this experience makes me stand two-times more firmly by my initial belief of teen
because, honestly, who wants to get knocked up in high school and get stuck with an actual pooping-peeing-crying-whining-sleep-stealing baby...NOT ME!!!!!!! I must say, it was definitely a

everywhere I went
and the whole idea of
trying to take care of something other than myself.
do not want kids. At least not yet.
Despite all of the negative things birthed with this experience, a few
were surfaced due to Aubrey and Liana being the “show-stealers” that they are. I must say that it was quite
, receiving all of the
being in pictures and things
definitely an experience I will remember for a lifetime.

The "Whats" about Aubrey and Liana...
I plan on incorporating an
authoritative parenting style
with my children. I will refrain from tossing Aubrey and Liana around and keep them close to me at all times,
strengthening the bond
between them and myself. This closeness will aid in the development of a
Their schedule will be
, allowing them to feel
comfortable with their surroundings
forming new associations
newly arising issues
, causing them to
with any change within their schedule. This approach will allow my children to have a
strong and secure self-esteem
due to me
them to be
in themselves. Their
may be influence by their father and myself as we both happen to be more
will most likely be lax and easy because I will educate and serve as a model for what an
woman is and demonstrate how to
pay little attention to any external obstacles.
Shhhh.... They're sleeping!!!

-Schedule is unpredictable, conflicts with leasure time.
"Ethan/Becca may be sick at school and I have to leave during the middle of a meeting at work to pick one of them up when my wife can't"
-"Rewarding when children are complimented by people we know or strangers"
-"Seeing them progress day-to-day and learning more and applying along the way"
-More manageable due to income being generated by two people.
-Kids, in general, are expensive.
-More bills, doctor visits, trips to supermarket, etc.
-"Despite the minuses, we wouldn't trade our children for anything in the world
"-Andrea(Mom) and David(Dad)
-Mother of a 2 year old(
-Day care: expensive considering she has to support herself as well as Max
-Social life is difficult to maintain.
-Juggling work and motherly duties.
-Getting sleep b/c Max is rowdy.
-Max progressing daily.
-Applying lessons learned to various situations.
-Speaking, manners, etc.

-Sacrifices wants for needs.
-ex: Getting her hair or nails done vs. buying milk
-Wishes she could find a good man to marry to help alleviate financial burden.
-"I'm still young and I know I have a LOT I could improve on as a mother, but as Max learns and improves with each day, I'm right there beside him, learning too."
