Brotherly Love - Twins Style

The Tigers and all their make believe....

Here they're playing, wrestling, looks like a big game of Twister to me. They love it. Guess what, I do too!

It seems like daily I stop in wonder in awe at the blessing of these two boys. Not only in my life but the blessing that they are to each other. There is a bond and love between them that is remarkable.

I grew up with four other siblings. It was wonderful. The Tigers have each other. We're thankful and I am amazed at their love and care for each other like no other. Oh, they battle too. They have their moments. Moments that make me wonder if we'll live through this parenting twin sons.

And yet, they feel for each other and care for one another in a way that is somewhat incomprehensible except that I love them that much. When one weeps, the other one is sad. Or weeps as well.

And God forbid, one gets timeout the other would rather be in timeout as well than be without his brother. With that said, they can be as different as day and night.

Tiger B explained it to a family friend last night, "He (Tiger A) is taller and I am heavier. He is more active and I am calmer." Now that's stretching it. Calmer. I never would describe either of the boys as 'calm.' Yet, he is 'calmER' than his brother. Their are a lot of other differences, blonde and blonder. Fast and faster. Happy and happier.

At the end of the day, they're brothers. "Brothers rule" as they said today. I smile. So you know, there's never a dull moment in the Carolina Mama household. There are many moments of gratitude.

As mamas, may we always stop and appreciate the joy and laughter these little lives bring among the exhaustion and mounds of laundry!

Well said. Mine are at the stage where they say, "You aren't my best friend" when they are angry with one another.

Reading this makes me happy since my little girl will soon have a sibling. I am so happy to know she will have this kind of relationship with her little brother or sister!

So sweet! They are so fortunate to have one another...and you as their mother!

That is so sweet! I love it when mine play together peaceably.

What a special gift your family has been given - in those darling twin boys! So glad you are able to enjoy their "activity"! They are both so "cute" (boy-style-cute), and I can see you in their faces. :-)

Praying for you to relish your day tomorrow, too.

Oh dear Tonggu Momma, who knew, I just thought the whole thing was hysterical. I mean did y'all notice the stuffed up muscles in their shirts. I think that was actually tissues. :) And they were so happy about the whole thing.

That is so great that they are so close! I always wanted a sibling when I was younger.
