True Twin Behavior

My lovely little twins are really beginning to show true twin behavior. As in monkey see monkey do. Now like all little monkeys, there is good and bad behavior that they like to copy.

My least favorite example of this takes place at the table. Now I don't know about the other parents out there, but the sound of my kids cups hitting the floor is like nails on a chalkboard to me. And don't worry they drop their cups at least twice a meal. This week they have started an adorable new habit. Mark threw his cup and then Molly put her cup out over her tray, looked at Mark and got his attention and then dropped her cup too. Right after that Molly threw some food off her tray. Mark proceeded to pick up his food and threw it in the same direction Molly did. Isn't that just adorable??????

Now I do have a very sweet example of this behavior. Mark is my little cuddler. He's such a sweet little guy who loves to cuddle his momma. (Please don't grow out of this phase anytime soon little guy.) Molly on the other hand cannot be bothered to cuddle unless she's sick. The kid doesn't like to slow down. However, in the last week or so she has started to come for a cuddle when Mark gets one. Sometimes she being jealous, but mostly she just wants to get a little love. So we have a big cuddle the three of us which melts my heart.

Now this week has made me realize that there will be more twin behavior to follow. I have a feeling that my little monkeys are going to really start feeding off each other and getting into trouble. So to all the other multiples parents out there, what crazy antics do your twins get each other to do? And is there anything I can do to stop it??? (PS-I'm pretty sure you're going to say no.)


  1. We haven't thought of anything to stop the less desirable behavior yet, unfortunately. But the sweetest twin behavior in our home is Ace & Ky HAVE TO say goodnight to each other with a hug and a kiss. If they don't, neither one can get to sleep. I love it. :)

  2. You just described my house! I wish I had advise, but offer none. I do know I more I tell them not to copy each other the more they do! Good or bad! Good Luck!

  3. My sister-in-law and cousin have twins and I don't know how they do it. I mean I have two boys 4 years apart and it's hard.

  8. Haha...oh I laugh because its your story. When its my story I just rip my hair out, lol. My twins are 7 1/2 months, and I am just now seeing the monkey behaviors with them. What I am forseeing..is the twins at the age of my oldest (2). YIKES!

  9. How cute, yet frustrating at the same time! My best friend is currently 33 weeks pregnant with b/g twins. I can't wait to hear all her stories. I had vanishing twin syndrome with my oldest and never got lucky enough to have twins with any of my other pregnancies.
