Today has been a long day, and I’ve been short on inspiration for my posting. I decided to let my very helpful four-year-old to help. I interviewed him about having twin sister. Here’s what he had to say plus some pictures of the girls hugging.
Why do you like having two sisters?
I help them when they are stuck riding the car. I can read them books. If the light is off in their bedroom I can turn it on.
What does it mean when someone is a twin?
I don’t know.
What make someone a twin?
I don’t know.
What does the word twin mean?
You already wrote on there [the computer screen] I don’t know. (Note – I guess we’ve done a good job of not referring to our daughters as twins.)
How can you tell which sister is which?
I ask them their names. R or S or R…. One of the sisters has a little darker eyes. (I’m not sure if this is true or not.)
I think maybe S.
Do you know anyone else who has twins?
The Cat in the Hat does. And, the guy with two little sisters that we saw at Christmas when there was lots of snow and I forgot my mittens. (I think he means friends with twin daughters). I don’t know their names.
How do you know they are twins?
Because they are the same size as R and S. They are 2 years old.
Can twins be different ages than 2?
They can be 1 or 3.
Can they be 4-years-old?
Were there any twins at your playschool?
Um nope. (There were very similar looking twin girls. There was also a boy with younger twins siblings this year and another one last year.)
