yet another stage
Up until now, the twins have pretty much done everything together. Same activities, same playdates, same parties, same bedroom, same school. Now, all of a sudden, we have been faced with something new. They have both been invited to birthday parties of two classmates and these parties are on the SAME day and at the SAME time! After some discussion amongst themselves (super cute to overhear too) they decided that baby boy would go to the boy's party and baby girl to the girl's party (totally predictable outcome, of course). So this is pretty much the first time they will go to an event on their own. Being of different genders I was kind of expecting this to occur at one point as they grow up with different friends. More so than twins of the same gender who can share friends and activities for longer. Reminds me of a friend of mine who has twin boys. At the time they were both attending the same school and the same class, first grade. Come along one classmates's birthday party and he invites one twin and not the other. The latter was devastated. The mother ended up not sending either. For her, it was both or none.
