I am really proud of the caring, intelligent little boys I have growing up before my eyes (they're 4 in June). One twin is a little more advanced with some things, but he will always try help his brother out if he notices him struggling.
They had a really good day today playing together nicely which has made me even more proud
I'm proud of their resilience and their kindness and their heart. It's not easy when your mum is chronically ill and you're separated from her for months at a time with no end in sight but they continue to try hard at school and at home regardless. My older two have told me on more than one occasion that they wish they could take on my illness so I wouldn't have to go through it - they are 10 and 7.
I was in fact just reading this article which my local multiple births association just posted, it's about the chances of conceiving twins twice, but covers a lot
I was like no no no way not twins. They asked me how many scans I had and then I was like Oh you know I had a scan at about 5/6 weeks that showed one sac that didn't form and was starting to reabsorb. I definitely didn't have twins but the midwife said he was lying in a classic town lie and there was so much room in my uterus but he wasn't budging. I sometimes wonder if he had some kind of subconscious feeling still of being a twin.
Do your boys have that weird spiritual unspoken connection a lot of people talk about?
