The next American Idol!



I love my little girls so damn much. I know people wonder why I'm always smiling. It's my girls. They make me smile from ear to ear when I think about them. They're like one of my blue pills but way better. They are my sunshine! Both are so very different. Ab's is our thinker. Analytical. As a baby learning to walk she would try and try to get up only to fall repeatedly on her butt. Pulling herself back up with the determination of an athlete. Pushing herself like nothing I've ever seen from a child her age. A. baby. It was overwhelming. For me. She would after much exhaustion break down and cry. It was heartbreaking. I was afraid her spirit would be broken being defeated. But it never fazed her. She makes me smile with her determination. Oh, she also makes me cry sometimes with her stubborness! She is my daughter. Has to have the last word too! But, she is one bright little cookie.



My Kate is our little entertainer. Singing. Dancing. Tumbling. She's a natural. Her smile can light up a room. She's still a little shy with people she doesn't know, but oh...man........look out once she feels comfortable with you. She may just drop her panties and moon you! Seriously. She seems to do this when Mai's boyfriend comes over! It's nothing for her to break out in one of her favorite tunes, with her "make-believe" microphone in tow. Head bobbing and foot tapping. Her creative juices flowing. Katie is as graceful as a swan. The girl makes it look so easy too. I know I need to get her into dance. Both girls are quite sweet, although Katie loves nothing better than sitting in our laps and snuggling. She's a hugger. Oh, g-d I hope she never out grows that! Ok, yes, I do know she most likely will. But.....not yet....she is after all only three!




I was preparing dinner the other night and overheard the following conversation by the girls:







Abbey: "Don't leave Katie".




Katie: "Do you want me to stay with you Ab's"?




Abbey: "Yeah".



Katie" "I'll stay with you Ab's til your done".



Abbey: "Thanks Katie. I love you".







Ok, when I heard that I got all chocked up. I had to see what was going on. I walked into the bathroom and I just cracked up. Katie was sitting on her stool with a book and Abbey was sitting on the throne. I said:



Me: "What are you girls doing"?



Katie: "Abbey's going poo-poo and I'm waiting with her".



Abbey "Yeah, I go poo-poo, Katie has her doodle board".



Katie: "Stinky, mommy".



Me: "Boy, you can say that again"! Smiling and thinking to myself "now, if they would just wipe one another's butt's"!!


I nearly cracked up. I asked sweet thing later if he thought they would always be like this? Sitting in the bathroom while the other one takes a dump and talking as if were the most natural thing to do . He looked at me and said "yep, I think they will".


I hope they're always this close with one another.

I can tell you as a 46 year old identical twin we are still as close as ever even though we live on opposite sides of the country, we speak everyday and I would still wait for her in the bathroom if she wanted me to. Twins are special and my mother always said she was my best friend and my mom was right.
Your girls are adorable and they will love each other for ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mimi said...

Oh my goodness this post was so sweet! It gave me cavities.

That was so cute... as for the bottom picture... hey, it is a sister thing... the same thing happened in our house... my sisters and I (we range from 32 to 39) and we are at mum's house... still wonder around in the bathroom together - talking, showering, toilet (of course we aren't all in there together but the door is open so we can talk... when I tell Mike, he thinks it's nuts but it is a sister thing and they will always hang around - no matter what... take care

Ellie Monster said...

I don't know if this will warm your heart or freak your out, but li'l sis and I still hang out in each other's b-rooms while showering and/or preparing for bed. We've outgrown reading to one another on the throne, though. :) TOO CUTE!!!!!

I love that Abbey already has down waving to her peeps as she sings.
I think you may need to get her a bigger stage:)

Love the bathroom picture...that is too sweet. Amelia says, "That's a good sister."

Mr.Brian said...

Nothing says (LOVE) more then sitting in on a stinky poop.

awesome, Rony. How funny-sweet...I hope my girls are close forever, too. I bet they will be. If one leaves the room for more than 5 or 10 secs, the other says "Where's....?" It's pretty cute.

So nice chatting last night. Will talk later this weeek.

love,
cin

Dianne said...

Eat your heart out Jordan Sparks! Katie's already got it. Too cute!
They look like they're inseperable, and so close. Aren't twins fun.
Hilarious post,

Snowflowers Mum said...

that was so cute I threw up a little in my mouth!

what a ham!

Christy said...

ok that is just precious!!! I think they are just adorable and I love the differences in their personalities. It is strange for twins to be so different but they are 2 seperate little people and they become their own. My best friends are identicle twins and they are very similar but also very differenet-- especially as they have grown older. One thing they will always say is how thankful they were to have eachother growing up. No matter what, when they were nervous or scared or shy or whatever, they always had eachother to help them through the experience. Your girls are so lucky!!!
