I often hear the comment from other moms, “Gosh, I just can’t imagine having twins. It would be so much work!” (Or some variation of this statement).
And on days like yesterday where I had two major meltdowns in the middle of the store… neither one wanted to ride in the stroller and screamed for the majority of my time in store #1, so I decided to hold their hands while I ran into store #2 to get just a couple of things. To which they both decided they didn’t want to hold my hands and much preferred to run around the store. So yes, they can be a lot of work.
But double the work, double the blessing. They play together so well for being not quite two. They make up their own little games. And really miss each other if they are apart. The other day I took M with me on some errands. As soon as we got home, L runs up to us and hugs M FIRST, then me. Haha.
And today I came home and they were playing in their room. I heard them laughing and talking. I opened the door and they were both sitting in one of their small toy boxes laughing hysterically. I am so thankful that they have a built-in best friend. What a blessing.
And they still snuggle.
