Sorry to disappoint y'all but I am NOT prego! (Don't even think about calling mom, Coco!) However, my two older boys have been cutting out leaves from construction paper this morning. We're going to do something with them, just don't know what yet. Anyhoo! This is the conversation that I overheard this morning.
4yo: Hey, we're both cutting out our second leaves at the same time!
6yo (with a big grin on his face): We're twins!!!
4yo: Yup, we do everything together.
I am sooo thankful for moments like this! There was a time when they couldn't even be in the same room together...they would always fight and scream at each other. I prayed for them...a lot...
I honestly thought that they didn't love each other and I was a horrible mother. Because mothers are supposed to control these things, right? Then one day another kid hit my younger son (2yo at the time). My then 4yo yelled at the other kid to go away and then attended to his younger brother. *LIGHTBULB* Ohhhhh...They can hit and beat up each other, but no one else can...They DO love each other!!!
Eventually, they started playing together more and actually sought out each other's company...without fighting too much. They have come such a long way to THIS MOMENT OF TWINDOM! What a blessing! They still fight sometimes and aggravate each other, but most of the time they play merrily together and have lots of adventures and say weird, funny things that I can post about here.
Thank you, dear God for your love and blessings upon my family! And thank you for a family that loves to spend and is able to spend both quantity and quality time together.
