Foto Friday & More: Discussing Our Growing Twin Bond & Showing it (Cutest Twin Video Ever Included)
My lifetime loves are 3 years, 3 months, 2 weeks, and 5 days old.
Its been 3 years of laughter, 3 years of chaos. 3 years of seeing double and doing double. There’s been a lot of love and a lot of madness. Its been a very crazy ride, however, here I stand a woman once petrified of having multiples EVER..way back when, making it work. Praise the good Lord!
I look back at the singleton child I had craved for so much and think..’which one wouldn’t be here with us?’ It’s very sad to even imagine it. There is of course, not a one I could ever imagine sacrificing. They are both my heart.
They are so unique and just very different, little individuals who make my world a better place. My heart is split 5 ways now. (Yes, my angel forever holds a big part of it also). I wouldn’t have that any other way. It isn’t an easy venture, but I’d never let it go.
Last year at 2 I couldn’t imagine the fighting decreasing, my frustration decreasing rather than increasing when I would get down..feeling hopeless because with singletons it usually was harder at 3 than at 2 in my personal opinion. Not with the twins. They have grown more into allies that are truly more bonded every day. It makes my heart SO happy.
I could have sworn they would have loved being singletons instead of a duo. They simply didn’t give a hoot for so long. It made me want to cry tears of sorrow. At 3 I know they love each other now. The bond has grown and seems ongoing during the past few months. They watch out for one another. Some caring words and actions are shared. Annie told her twin yesterday, ”Allie, you’re my best friend. I love you.” Tears came into my eyes. This time..tears of joy!
For all of you with fighting twins that seem to hate one another and you do not know what you are going to do with yourself believe that hope is on the horizon my friend. Will there always be some rivalry among them like normal siblings? Of course. But they will grow to play more, care more, show affection more, in ways that will melt your heart.
Some proof for you is in the below video. It starts out a little sad, but then you see how the twin bond starts showing and growing and we become BFF’S..kissing and hugging away..and without bribery! In earlier times I didn’t get videos like this. Yes, I used to bribe for a super cute pic. It’s ‘paid for’ lol.
(Example shown here below.)
This video shows love without bribery after this event. I think it’s the cutest, sweetest, twin video ever! (And not just because I am obviously biased.) Take a looksy. Twin mamas…it may always be hard, but things will get better. More enjoyable to. Even if it is hard to imagine in the place you are at right now. I just love my twin girlies!
They all grow up too fast. Enjoy your own multiples (and other children if you have them). I wish I could start over and I truly, truly mean that. Pretty encouraging for someone who was scared of multiples like they were the plague. (I’m so sorry Annie & Allie…I didn’t know :lol .)
Kids are out of school in a few hours for the Summer. Time to get ready for more madness!
I’ll see you Monday!
(I’m taking weekends off now to start working on other projects I have going on that have not been getting done. No worries…Twinpossible will be here for many years to come.)
