Twins everywhere

Before I had twins I had never had an egg with 2 yolks in it. Now I get them all the time. Seriously, I even had one carton that had 2 eggs that had 2 yolks in them. It kind of makes me sad because I think of the little twin chicks they would have been. But that doesn't last long. Ha!

I just seem to be finding "twins" everywhere these days. Kind of makes me a little scared, like it better not be a sign that I am going to have more. Eek! So today I happened to notice a sunflower we have and it was a double sunflower. Very cool in retrospect.

And to help give some kind of reference there is a photo of one of the single ones as well.

The twin thing has been on my mind a lot lately. So don't get me wrong when I say what I am about to. I love having twins. But (Yep, you knew there had to be a but with that lead in), some times I wonder what it would be like to have had my children one at a time. I wonder if I am cheating them in a way. Of time with both me and M. Of their own personal space. Of all kinds of things I could sit and list but won't.

I seem to have periods of time when I ponder this more so than other times and this happens to be one of those. Still struggling with if I should put them in their own rooms or not. I always said I would wait until they were old enough to decide on their own and let them make the choice. But they sleep so differently and have been fighting lately I am wondering if some time to themselves may be what they need. They are almost ALWAYS together. They hardly ever have time alone. Although I have tried letting one go with me and the other with M at some point over the weekend this just doesn't happen often. We tend to go do things as a family on the weekend. Sigh. Just once again pondering what is best for my children. I think I will do this until the day I die. Crazy things we do as parents, huh?

4 Twin Boys and a Princess said...

Lee Anne, is there any way for you to hire a babysitter when Mike is working and take just one boy with you? I do that frequently, and I am amazed at how different the boys's personality is when their brother is not around! It is so special to do that! My big boys still remember most of the "alone time with mom" things we did when they were growing up!
Uh-HEM! That seeing the twin thing everywhere...that happened to me for about 1 year before the second set was born...

I agree with twins being everywhere. You had the twins. My colleague at work had twins. There is a set in our Kindermusik class, in our Little Gym class, in our pre-school class, and a set that comes to the pool where we swim. My little one is beginning to think that kids come in twos and is wondering where her twin is.

Bite your tongue woman! No, I will NOT have another set of twins. No, no, no. I can hardly keep up with the first set! Paranoia starting to set in now...
