They WERE identical....

We went out for dinner plus two this evening.

There was a huge fish tank at the back of the restuarant that the twins were very interested in, so we took them for a closer look after dinner.

A lady was there with a little girl looking also. She immediately asked me if my two were twins. I said yes they are. "Oh, I am only asking because I have twin grandsons." I smiled and nodded, with "do you really"? She moved the little girl to the other side of me, saying my two need a better look.

Anyhow, I was curious as to whether her grandsons were identical, phrasing this way as some folk really do not understand as we well know.

She looked at me, asked me to repeat myself and responded with....
"Well, they were, up until about 12. They are 16 now."

I found it so hard to keep a straight face. Hubby put a dampers on my story, when he said "oh she meant they were showing their individuality, different hair, clothes, etc" ........not the impression I got tho, shoulda been there! LOL

"But we're BROTHERS!"

I thought I'd jumpstart our new blog with a funny little story that recently happened....

For the past few months, Josh (6) has been coming home from school and telling us how he's in LOVE with a girl named Kaki, who rides the bus with him. I don't make a big deal about it, but I like to entertain the conversation enough to get his brain cranking sometimes. ;)

Then about 2 weekends ago when were were all out, Josh started this whole conversation again and Justin (6) was just NOT having it!!!

It went a little something like this....

"I'm going to marry her in a church!" - Josh
"Does SHE know you love her?" - Me
"Um....I don't know." - Josh
"Well we'll be grownups and I'm gonna kiss her... when we get married." - Josh
"That's fine, you can get married when you're grown up." - Me

I just thought that was TOO cute!!!

And it's SO Justin too... always a bit more "needy" of Josh, then Josh is of him.....

My challenge to you all is to make sure YOU are keeping track of these silly little stories because if you Mom brain is half as mushy as MINE, you'll need a note or 2 to remember this sweet moments!
