Big T, Little t. What Begins with T?

Touche, Tap and Twins...T, T, T.

The cadence of post is an homage to one of the most oft-read in the Lage house a decade ago...

What are some of your favorite children's books to read aloud?

Way Back When-esday: Ta-Ta, Tiny Teeth....


Dateline: May 19, 2004
Twins' Age: 2

He-Twin was a gummy little guy...with nary a tooth in his mouth until he was 14 months old.

In somewhat predictable fashion, his teeth---once they finally came in---were reticent to depart, which I completely understand. After all, look how cute they made his happy little boy smile!

Last May, Darren had three baby teeth extracted in order to accommodate his braces.

Yesterday, the last two had to be professionally plucked, as they were firmly standing their ground...their roots.

From the car, with a gauze-filled mouth, He-Twin shared texted Double Daddy...

Memories of tiny teeth---and pride in our pair's progress---warm my heart this week.

Way Back When-esday : Scenes from the Street


Dateline: April 2003
Twins' Age: 19 months

Way back when, Style Weekly ran a contest for free tickets to attend Sesame Street Live (for a family of four). Having become a family of four just 19 months earlier, it seemed a perfect opportunity to enter...and WIN!

Apprehension about She-Twin and He-Twin perhaps being "too young" for a live production was ill-founded. They were enraptured to see their Sesame Street friends larger than life...and certainly larger than our TV screen.

Our good little audience members were also fully engaged V.I.P.s at their first celebrity "meet and greet."


Fun memories of our little fans warm my heart this mid-week.
