Play Misty for Me

Earlier this week, our neighborhood observed National Night Out.

There were Sno-cones. Gelato bowls. Cookies. Popsicles. Root beer floats. A marching band. Policemen. Firetrucks. 90+ degrees, with an unhealthy dollop of humidity. Thankfully, there was also a misting tent.

Now, for nearly 10 years, more often than not, our twins have done more to dispel the twin mystique than to validate it. They spoke no twin language. They felt not each other's pain. Yet somehow, in the heat of the summer street, He-Twin and She-Twin unwittingly mirrored each other's appreciation of the cool.

Call me twindulgent, but I'm appreciating the cool of this fleeting moment captured.

That sounds like such a cool (certainly no pun intended!) neighborhood event!

And we had what I called a "mirror image twin" moment at our house this week...the girls each had a baby doll and a shopping basket, sitting on their little push cars, "going grocery shopping", as they told me. I couldn't have posed it better myself. :)

I want in on that! It's been roasting here lately. And being pregnant I feel the heat worse than ever!

What a great moment to capture. Sounds like a fun institution to observe.

It's funny, my kids are very similar to yours: they get along and are very close, but I've never noticed the mythical twin-ness that people like to ask about (ALL THE TIME). So when they have something like this, it's that much more fun to notice.

That's a great picture and it sounds like a fun party! It seems fraternal twins like ours have a lot fewer of those mystical traits.
