My Story

The chronicle of the journey from infertility, to miscarriage, to finally raising twin girls born in June 2012.

And so it begins

I was sitting on the couch with the girls today, playing with a toy.  I had Middie Biddie on my lap and Teeny Tiny snuggled up next to me, both engaged with the toy.

Then Teeny Tiny got up and also sat on my lap, straddling Middie Biddie from behind.  I thought "this is so adorable!" and called out to K to come look.  That's when Teeny Tiny shoved Middie Biddie firmly and I was barely able to catch her arms to prevent her from hitting the ground.

With the way she steals toys* and now shoving Middie Biddie off my lap, I'm thinking of changing Teeny Tiny's nickname to Bossy Britches.

I'm plotting elaborate ways to kill you

*She often exchanges one toy for another with Middie Biddie.  Awesome that she at least gives her a replacement toy, but she still doesn't give her victim any choice in the matter.


  1. Sorry it made me chuckle. Reminds me of my sibling time with my brother.

  2. Yes! "Me too". My 20 month old twin boys have the same dynamic. W is so very dominant, wanting to take brother G's toys and does that toy exchange thing too. On one hand I'm thankful that G has a totally different personality, seeming not to care too much about this and letting W do whatever he wants. On the other, I don't want W to be a domineering kid or for G to feel taken advantage of. I feel like there's little I can do about this, though!


Please share your thoughts! It makes me feel like I have friends.
