I love hearing other's stories and tips. It intrigues the pee out of me. So on Thursday's you will find a guest poster around these here parts. Whether they be twin, twin mommy/daddy, twin grandma, twin whatever I'll wrangle them up and let them do the talking (errr typing).
This weeks guest post is written by Leslie M. You can visit her blog Leslie Loves Veggies just as soon as you read her post! LOL
Best Friends, Worst enemies...the Life of a Twin!
Twin A. That is me!
Love it. Hate it.
Never thought alot about it!
I cannot imagine my life without Twin B! My womb mate!
I can't speak for All twins; I can only speak for me and my Twin!
So here we go!
It is the BEST and it is the WORST!
Best: I was never lonely, I had a built in Best Friend!
Worst: I had to share a strawberry shortcake Butter cream frosting Birthday cake with my Twin for 18 years!! I wanted my OWN Chocolate Whipped Cream frosting cake!
Best: No first day Jitters at school! Ha I had my Twin by my side! Even though we never had a Class together, I had nothing to fear! I had my Sissy by my side!
Worst: All the other kids had Gumby and Pokey! I wanted both too! I got Pokey Darn it! We had to SHARE every single toy we had! So NOT fair, just because we were twins!
Best: Didn't have to be afraid of the Dark! No Siree Bob! Twin Sissy and I Shared that Big old Bed together and how could a monster get me? He would surely go for HER first! So *I* was safe! Besides I would hear her scream when the monster came through the door and I would protect both of us! (That is how a twin thinks, no lie)
Worst: I must have had insomnia even as a kid. Poor Sissy (ya know my Sister's name is Helen, not Sissy Right?) would try to sleep and I would want to play, so I would put my hand under her pillow and jiggle it to keep her awake! She would beg me to stop! "Please stop Sissy!" Would I? Heck no! If I did she would go to sleep and my fun would be OVER!
Best: It was Helen who introduced me to my Hubby! I DID NOT WANT HIM! I figured he was HER CAST off! She tried to get me to meet him for 2 years. I canceled....Stood him up at least half a dozen times. I figured if he was so great, she would keep him for herself! But she insisted he was the MAN for me! Well, 28 years later and Sissy KNEW BEST!
Worst: Hearing "I told you so". Shut up Already! We have been married for 25 years! YOU WERE RIGHT!!!! ENOUGH!
Best: Our family moved to Georgia from New York 11 years ago! I did NOT want to leave my TWIN! We lived 2 miles apart Sissy cried, I cried and we made the Hubbies miserable. Finally Helen told her Hubby "We have to move to GA....You can't separate Twins, they die! They arrived in GA 6 months later! Ha! Victory!
There is NO worst! I cannot imagine my Life without Helen! I Love her and Thank God for her every single day of my life! Helen lives 2 miles away! That's how it should be!
The Twins are Happy!
The Hubbies are Happy!
