Comparing & Coloring

I have twins, and they are identical too. This invites a lot of people to try to compare them to each other. It happened much more when they were babies.

“Have they both started to crawl yet?”

“Who is the better sleeper?”

“Do you have the same discipline problems with both?”

I get it. Twins are interesting and people are curious, but it makes me crazy. I feel like there can be so much pressure on them to do things in the same way at the same time. Since their little egg split these two are different people. They may save the same DNA but have different personalities and interests. It didn’t matter that Alyssa started crawling a month after Kylie, she ended up walking first. And so what if Kylie isn’t as good at catching a ball as Alyssa? She is better at drawing. And in a couple of years if one wants to do karate and one wants to take piano lessons then that just sounds perfect to me.

And just because I am a proud little mama, here is a picture Kylie colored yesterday. I think she did a pretty good job for still being two years old! She is getting better at coloring in the lines (all on her own, we don’t tell her she needs to!) and worked especially hard on Big Bird’s beak and feet.

  1. Love it! Great post. My b/g twins get the same questions, although it feels as if the questioner is rooting for boy or girl! Good job, Kylie! Love her expression in this pic.
