- Best friends forever
- Good twin, bad twin
- Always have a playmate
- Same personalities
And then let's talk about the best friends forever mythology, or rather, how I feed into that:
Do you know why I often post pictures of my boys kissing? It gives the impression they spontaneously kiss one another when I have a camera when they CERTAINLY do not. Telling them to give each other smoochies is the only way I know to get two four year old boys to stand still long enough to take a picture.
Always have a playmate... oh that is laughable for many reasons! They didn't truly start playing together any earlier than normal kids... around 3 years old. They didn't even *notice* each other until they were 4-5 months old.
Don't get me started on how there were THREE fights in the ten minutes I was upstairs changing this morning. Play together? HA HA HA.
I think to truly debunk (or prove) twin mythology takes time as you need to get know each individual pair. At times, they are best friends. At times, one is bad and one is good. At times, they love playing together. At times, they are inseparable. Their personalities are like night and day. This can be said about any siblings, not just twins.
Hopefully as you read here and get to know my boys, you will learn about twin myths and how my boys prove them or disprove them. And one only has to look through my flickr stream to see the trend. Two amazing boys, frequently together. I can't imagine one without the other. And yes, my hands are happily wonderfully full.
