two of a kind

i often wonder what it is like to have a twin. especially an identical twin. what is it like to look at someone who looks just like you? what's it like to have someone that you have literally been with almost every moment from conception? they are together every moment of every day. they fight, yell, tattle, and get mad at each other, but it never takes long to make up. they hold hands in the car, play together, sing, and make up dances for their 'talent shows'. for the first time yesterday, they tried to trick me by telling me that they were their sister. Grace would laugh and say "i'm catherine!" and catherine would smile and say "i'm grace!" i was pretty sure they were teasing me, but i actually did have to look twice! bedtime is just one big slumber party, night after night. they will stay up forever just talking about the day, what they will do tomorrow, and giggling over their nonsense words and sounds. last night they were still awake around 10:00, just singing and laughing. i hope they always stay close. i hope they never get tired of giggling with their sister. i hope they know how lucky they are to have each other!
