Let Them Be Cake

A lot of people ask me whether or not Ashley loves being a big sister to the twins. Then they look genuinely surprised when I respond with "Um....sometimes?"

(Note to self: maybe honesty is not always the best policy).

But what can you do, right? They're only 17.5 months apart, so there's bound to be scrapes and squabbles and typical sibling rivalry. However, every now and then something comes up that makes me go "Hmmmmm. I wonder if there's a section on that in 'What to Expect - the Toddler Years?'"

Take last week, for example. Ashley drew me a "cake book." It looked exactly like it sounds - drawings and more drawings of cakes, all different colors, but with one thing in common - each of them was topped with a single cherry. A purple scribble here with a cherry on top, a rainbow scribble there with a cherry on top, etc.... Cute, right?

Until I got to this page.

Yes, that's Aidan and Owen. With cherries on their heads.

Good thing the oven is still broken. ;-)

funny funny, and you are right, there's normal sibling issues to be had - although I don't know if I would be so honest in public. I'm usually polite and to the point so people will leave us alone.
