>We (well, I) tend to coordinate our boys’ outfits, but lately, at the age of 4 1/2 years, they simply dress themselves and we never know what they’ll come out wearing. I recently bought two bright orange shirts at our spring resale for the boys to wear while camping or when we’re in a crowded place (think Out of this World or the zoo) so they are much, much easier for me to spot. So, when I asked the boys to wear these bright orange shirts for the party yesterday, they were more than happy to oblige. Here’s how the conversation went:
B: Look, Gavin, we are wearing the same shirt!
G: Yeah, Ben, that’s ’cause we are twins.
B: Oh, yeah. So we wear the same shirt.
Me: We’re going to a party where there will be a lot of twins, just like you.
B & G: (Grinning ear to ear, jumping up and down while holding hands) We’re going to a twin party! We’re going to a twin party! We’re having a party for us!
