Their childhood dream came true, but this time their children are real people, not balloons. Impressive foreshadowing
When Chaulet Barba, 33, and Brie Dietz, 35, were 6 and 4 years old, respectively, they had no idea that their pretend simultaneous pregnancies would one day become a reality as they are right now. But the California siblings had the chance to replicate their childhood photograph with balloons in their costumes, only this time they were actually pregnant adults.
“Do you remember that picture? I questioned her when we discovered we were expecting together. Even now, maybe 25 years later, I can still recall everything with absolute clarity! Chaulet Barba was told by Dietz.
25 years ago, they discovered their photo. The photograph was taken in the 1990s and shows the two wearing nightgowns, curlers in their hair, and balloons below. The sisters later posed side by side in their pajamas once more, this time lifting their shirts to show off their enormous tummies. Barba gave birth to her daughter Gemma in January 2020, while Dietz gave birth to her daughter Goldie in October 2019.
The mothers of the little girls decided to extend the photo shoot and recreate their childhood balloon picture with their kids because the two of them are now very close, just as their mothers were and are. The most recent photograph of Goldie and Gemma standing with their own under-nightdress balloons is now available as a triptych.
“We got lucky to have a chance to recreate that,” Dietz — who is now a mother of three — said of the now decades-long photo series. “It made it feel not only like it came full circle from playing that as a kid, but it felt like a special sister moment.” She hopes that she, her sister, and their daughters’ sweet photoshoots can remind viewers of how wonderful girlhood family time can be.
Dietz said. “I hope it makes people remember that sweet time when you’re in this little world of your own with your siblings, and we can’t mimic that now in our busy day-to-day lives.”
That is a good idea for your and your sister to play the future game. How do you feel about this idea?
