Way Back When-esday : Poster Children

Dateline: January-ish 2010
Twins' Age: 8

When I asked He-Twin if there was a specific age that'd be fun to feature today, he suggested, "Eight."

Looking back at photos from that year, this precious one caught my eye...

They're both smiling. They seem happy to be in each other's presence. They're both carrying totes and wearing outfits I'd forgotten over the past five years.

More standout, the two door-mounted posters in front of which they're standing. Carefully crafted with love to welcome their Daddy home from his November 2009 radical neck dissection (mandated by a recurrence of metastatic malignant melanoma), we left them up for months.

Our twins'---and their Daddy's----strength, resilience and smiles make my mid-week.

Habitual Hugs Make My Monday

Since they were wee, visits with their Great-Grandfather---more affectionately known as "Papa"---have always concluded with a tight hug.

Never one to take any endeavor lightly, a "Squeeze harder---you can do better than that!" bit of coaching from within the clutch is as predictable as the prolonged embrace.

In this season of snot and stomach issues, we use extra care when venturing out to Papa's place, not wanting to contaminate his community of often-vulnerable neighbors.

The day after Christmas, it became clear that our clinchers' growth is making these moments even more memorable.

The love our not-so-little ones have for their Papa Makes My Monday.

Play along with Makes My Monday---easing weekends' ends since 2007!

Twinned Treats : Episode 1

As most parents of twins know, things frequently arrive better in twos.

 Here, the first installment of a long-overdue litany acknowledging dual delights.

Identical Shaq twins. Who knew?

Any ideas as to which beverage belongs to which Lage twin?

Guesses welcome....
