(I am pregnant. My eight-year-old nephew is totally disinterested.)

Me: “So, I went to see the doctor today, and found out something pretty exciting.”

Sister: “Oh, did you find out the sex?”

(My nephew is playing with Lego nearby, still disinterested.)

Me: “No! But when he did the scan, he saw something pretty cool.”

Sister: “What! Tell me!”

Me: “I am having twins!”

(My nephew is suddenly animated and interested.)

Nephew: “Oh, wow! That’s amazing! Twins! I can’t wait to tell everyone at school you are having two babies joined together!”

Me: “Uh, no, that’s siamese-twins. I am having two babies, but they aren’t going to be joined together.”

Nephew: “Oh.”

(He loses all interest, and goes back to playing with Lego.)
