It really was double the fun.
I'd been so worried that the boys would start asking for their OWN birthdays. Something just for ME, Mom, something I don't have to share.
But, you know what, they LOVED it. It was THEIR day, their weekend into Tuesday really, and they LOVED being the center of attention TOGETHER.
It never even occurred to them to NOT to want to share their special day.
They looked for eachother before opening two of their gifts before Andrew's baseball game on Sunday. And then passed out the cookies to the team together.
When the cakes came out later in the afternoon - and yes, we had two - they turned to eachother beaming at their luck.
How great is this, to be able to share your special day with the brother you love?!
Each made sure the other had a present to open too, before tearing into his. (And yes, this year anyway, they got the same things.)
And shared in the glory at kindergarten on Monday as well.
We had two cakes at the party Tuesday too. Although I don't think they needed it. And they did get some presents to share - on my request. And were okay with it.
I'm learning - slowly - to stop making such a big fuss over this stuff.
So what, they're twins.
Less one-on-one time with Mom. But you know what, two of their best friends have asked their mothers for siblings so that they can be like Aidan and Matthew!
Takes a four year old to point out the obvious.
What these guys have is special.
Happy Birthday Little Men!
