Yes, they are twins!!
Today I had to take the girls to the ENT to have their tonsils looked at. They were quite nervous about the whole thing. I had to explain to them that the doctor was just going to look at them today and if he needed to remove them, it would be on a different date. We dropped little brother off at Paw-Paw's house ( thank GOD) and drove downtown. From the lobby to the elevator, to the dr.'s office, we got asked if they were twins. Now, I understand that sometimes sisters ( or brothers) that are similiar in height, could cause that question to be asked. However, when my girls are standing next to each other in identical coats, with the same hair/eye color and facial features, then I just don't understand the question. I am thinking of making them shirts that say "YES, WE ARE TWINS", and then listing all the stats that are inevitably the next round of questions from curious bystanders. I do not say any of this to be ugly. Maybe if I didn't have twins, I would go around asking the very same thing. I remember when they were babies and we would be in the store or the mall. I would have them in my side by side double stroller wearing identical PINK outfits. I would get " are they twins" all the time. My favorite had to be , "which one is the boy?". Uh, I don't know, the one in the PINK!!!! Ah, life with twins, it may be tiring, it may be crazy, but it is NEVER boring! ;)
