Of course her identical twin sister would...

Yesterday the girls and I decided to go grocery it never fails that always half way through the shopping trip we have to make a trip to the bathroom.  Not for my girls...which is what you would normally think, but for me.  The old bladder just doesn't work the same after twins pee my pants everyday

The girls and I go into the bathroom of Safeway and I am washing my hands, Em is getting towels to dry her hands and Er is waiting for the towels.  The rest of the stalls have since filled up since we got out.

Emilie was drying her hands and screached in the loudest almost non-human tone I had ever heard.  I instantly said to her in a stern tone..."Em, there is not a human being on earth that would think that was funny."  Erynn looked at me and said, "Mom...I think it's funny."  I said, "Well of course her identical twin sister would."

This was an epiphany for me in my life...I finally figured out a portion of my life that puzzled me daily.  The reason my girls are so goofy and crazy, is because their sister thinks it's funny!  They always have a given audience with the exact same sense of humor.  What an absolute blessing to be an identical twin. 

I laughed so was hilarious.  Not to mention...all the women in the stalls found the humor in it too.

Have a great Friday night all!


  1. I never thought of it that way...My boys are not id but they still have the same way about them and think that something that is funny and they laugh so hard at each other...yes a given audience.

  2. I'm coming at the world of twin-mommyhood from the perspective of having been an only child. I find the interaction between siblings...much less amazing. Our girls are 15 months old, and I know it's just going to keep getting better.

    I love this story! :)

  3. Oh yeah. Being an identical twin, we loved to mirror one another's behavior. If one licked insulation because she thought it was pink cotton candy, the other one did too.

    I would love to see them in action. We still do this even in our adult years...we will defend the pants off of each other even if one of us is in the wrong.

  4. Oh I still wish I had an identical twin sister! Heck I don't even have a sister. So I settle for cracking myself up! =)

  5. Loved the story!
