I need to write these down here before I forget.
This is the stuff that you forget to put in the baby book but that they'll LOVE to hear when they get older.
I was chatting with El and Em after school a few weeks ago and, as usual, they often talk over each other. We've been working on it. I try to remind them to let the other one talk but Em has a tendancy to go on, and on, and on, and on. El gets worried her sister is going to tell the whole story so she jumps in.
This time, however, it was El taking her sweet old time telling me a story and Em got sick of waiting and started taking over to which El said,
"Em stop interrupting me!"
Em, "I'm not interrupting you I'm just trying to talk while you're talking!"
Then this week the girls were being silly and one of them got scratched by the other one's toenail (don't judge...we groom but those toe nails grow fast!) and then both were yelling and finally I said to El,
El gets all sad faced because even though I saw "girls" I'm looking at her.
I turn away and hear,
"Cut it out! You're being mean and smiling at me!"
Since when is it mean to smile at someone?
Well, when it's your twin sister who is gloating that she isn't the one to have received the look.
Don't worry. She got the look after that.
And then we put a bandaid on the toenail scratch.
Just another day....
