They were sitting next to each other.
In a room full of peers.
Sometimes I find myself so disgusted with my kids and their lack of respect for their siblings. It is totally NOT ALLOWED in our home, and yet they try it. Every. Day. They are constantly being
I remember being a kid. All of my friends "hated" their sisters and brothers. They were "so annoying." That was all there was. It was expected. It was practiced.
And then I grew up and realized that my sister were the best friends I would have on God's green earth. Wha....?
I don't intend to let my kids waste their years together and figure that out once they are far flung. I would have LOVED to walk into school with an ally. Since I piled so many kids into our family in such a short amount of time, my kids should have built in allies. If they will just take advantage of it.
And another thing: I hear a lot of c-r-a-p about "artificial twinning." So much so that I have begun to feel a little guilty about accidentally doing it. And yet, it appears that I will be accidentally doing it again. But hey, my twins are cute, don't ya think? And they like each other.
It's a gift.
