Together They are 24

Today is A&P's 12th birthday. I told them they had a surprise in the garage. It was Jones Soda. Cruel? Yes. No way should they be driving a car or doing anything else that requires a license.

Peter was very upset that I did not honor his Scout fire lighting credentials and allow him to ignite his cake. He could barely blow it all out.

Andrew told me that I am his servant for today. I don't think I was that delightful when I was 12.

Anyway, Happy birthday to A&P. Happy Birthday to me and Tim because we are still married after horsing around with these kids, diapers, barfing, school, homework, sports, coaching, vacations, nightmares, dirty socks and menus of only chicken strips for 12 years. This kind of feels like an accomplishment!

I should say so! Quite an accomplishment, all around!

Living with two sons, I am amazed they made it to 12. The fact you got these two to this age without choking them gives me hope. LOL. Happy Birthday, A & P!

Thanks Teri!

Shonda, the amazing thing about having identical twins is that they are self-choking. I rarely have any opportunity to do something to them that they haven't been doing to each other.

I'm glad you survived! Now, there's only 12 more to go to get them through college, girlfriends, fast cars, keg parties, etc. HA! You'll make it and have fun to boot. :o) ♥ ∞
