Besties

The twins can be so competitive.  About every thing.  Some days we start the day with tears, "He woke up before me and I wanted to wake up FIRST!".  Other days, we end the day in tears, "But I wanted to finish my dinner first!" 

Thankfully, in between all that competition, there are many moments when they are side by side, heads bent together in whispered secrets, the best of friends.  I love those moments.
It must be nice to have a twin.

Twins really are great!

My twin sister and I describe each other as more than a sister and more than a best friend. I feel so lucky to have been born a twin!

Oh Lisa growing up in a house with two sets of twins 16 months apart I have seen this all my life. It does not end the only difference is the competitions become different and they will motivate each other. LOVE LOVE the photo. B

Love the picture! Made me chuckle to read about the things important enough to them to be competing over. Must be pretty entertaining having twins :)

My SIL is a twin. There is a very special connection between them that is just unexplainable!

One of my daughters best friends is a twin. Boy and a girl. They compete academically and then at times it seems like my daughters friend quits competing at some things because her brother will beat her.

This picture is just priceless! They sound like normal twins to me! I agree, it must be nice. I would have settled for any sibling.

Siblings and competition can be hard at times but for twins it must be double the work and fun. I love the photo!
