My daughters’ second grade teacher has given them permission to decorate their daily folders with stickers. My daughter J asked if she could use a dollar of her savings to buy stickers. I told her she could, but might want to check out the sticker bin in the art centre first.

Soon afterward, I found both 7-year-olds rummaging through stickers.

These twins' favourite thing ever? Each other! Check out this sweet conversation at hdydi.comJ: Mom! We have some really great stickers in here.
Me: I know! You’ve had them all along.
M: I knew they were there, but I didn’t really look. I’m not such a sticker person.
Me: You guys went through a period, when you were about 3, when you were all about stickers. They were your favourite thing ever.
M: More than sisters?
Me: Well, no.
M: That’s what I thought.

These kids have no clue how much joy their love for one another brings me.

    1. When my girlies were a little younger than yours, I introduced a mirror as (what I thought be) a fun toy. They pawed at it and cried and cried and cried. I finally realized they wanted it to be Sissy instead. I put the mirror away until they were old enough to “get” it. You can definitely tell by 8 months, in my opinion, whether your twins will be close! Of course, closeness also results in epic arguments.

  1. It comes through in the oddest ways too. Today R was lying facedown on the couch and M came up and started pounding on his back. Before I could stop him, R starts laughing hysterically, rolls over, and gives him a hug. The older they get, the less I understand, lol.
