Twins in Nature
When I pictured having kids someday, I imagined myself playing silly games, teaching them how to climb a tree, or tucking them quietly to sleep with their favourite bedtime story. I didn't realize how many sleepless nights of screaming I would have to endure before those movie moments came true....holy shit.
But I am relieved to say that the interactions I once imagined, are finally happening! Carly and Kathryn are shaping into little girls full of personality, bursting with impulse, and a hunger to learn. Every day they are challenging themselves to climb higher and run faster. Sometimes they giggle as they wrestle or chase each other, and its impossible not to laugh along with them (it almost always ends with crying, but for a few minutes its beautiful).
After a long winter of doing our best to offer engaging toys, play dates, play groups, and bubble guppies, it felt so necessary to spend a full weekend outside, around the cabin. As I suspected, the twins were delighted with the natural wonders of the land. We're not meant to spend so much time in rooms, in front of screens. This is how it should be...
