The Photo Gallery: Bond
Everything they do, they do it together.
They are each other's best friend. If one goes on a playdate, the other wants to come. If one has a day off school ill, the other is miserable. When I ask them who they play with at recess at school, they answer that they play with each other.
They are not twins, but 19 months apart. They are not identical in character, far from it; Littleboy 1 is energetic, enthusiastic and tends toward the manic while his brother is quieter, thoughtful and goes at his own (often frustrating to us) pace. But, like all the best couples, their differences complement each other perfectly. They have a very special bond.
Which is why I'm concerned that they might not be going to the same school in England. Not at first, anyway. Their father says they will just "have to deal with it". And I guess that's all part of growing up. Whatever, I hope they will still have that unbreakable fraternal bond in years to come.
This post is part of the Photo Gallery at Sticky Fingers; theme this week is "Bond". The photo was taken last weekend, when ice covered the beach and bay opposite our house; a truly beautiful sight.
