I am posting again this morning over at How Do You Do It? But, today I am posting about the awesome twin bond, twin connection that my girls and many twins share!
And I have to say this ultra special sibling connection is one of the greatest blessings and advantages about having twins. While twins are especially demanding in the first year or two of life, part of the reason I think they get easier with the passing days and months and years is that they have each other. As a parent, I don’t have to entertain them myself all day long. I don’t have to come up with things to do for them. They can play with each other. They can talk to each other. They are siblings, playmates, and best friends, as well as being twins.
My twin daughters may not be identical, but they still have this great bond. Now, at the age of three years, I love hearing them play together, hearing them giggle, watching them smile, holding hands and hugging of their own fruition, apologizing, kissing boo-boos, and pretending. I love how they encourage each other (though sometimes it may mean double trouble for mom and dad!), share, care, and love each other.
