Some place called Twinsburg is having a twins celebration this weekend. Are you a twin, do you have twins or do you have twins in your family? Got any funny "twincedents" to share?
I have a set of fraternal girls who are older than they'd like to be but still under 30. I was always amazed at the things people would say to us. When they were small, less than a year they only had peach fuzz for hair and people said, "Oh they look just alike, ".......now I let that slide since they were little and hairless, but obviously they never really LOOKED at them.......Elizabeth's face was as round as round could be and Sarah's face was long and slender. Then their hair finally grew and here we go again, " Oh they look so alike how do you tell them apart?..............are you kidding me???.....one is a brunette and one is blonde!
And then there were the people who knew we had twins but didn't know which kids they were........we have 4 kids all relatively the same age, Amanda was 3 years and 2 months when the girls were born and David was 11 1/2 months old when they were born ( no jokes, please, I've heard them all, half of them from my OB) accidents happen). ( For 2 weeks every year I have 3 the same age) Anyway as the kids grew people would look at the kids and just begin pairing them up in odd sets.......when Amanda was 6 she was short (still is) and dave was tall so they'd assume they were the twins. Then later as Amanda "developed" it became obviously that she and Dave were not the same age. So then the would choose David and Sarah, the tall blonde ones. Dave hated that!! When he was in 8th grade he told his English teacher who was brand new to the community that those girls in her 7th grade class were his cousins.............she was quite suprised when I wanted to talk to her about the girls at the parent/ teachers conference. Now that they are older my blonde twin is no longer blonde. Sarah's hair has turned brown over the years but with the hair dye it has been several shades of darker blondes, browns, auburns and reds??? So my twin stories don't center around them fooling us, just fooling others, in an odd sort of way.
Here's a picture of them at Sarah's graduation from college l-r, Kylie (GD#3), Elizabeth (D#2-four minutes older than Sarah), Sarah (D#3) and Amanda (D#1)
happy twins weekend girls!
